PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) Stacy Lewis brings more value to the LPGA Tour that just her golf.
Along with becoming the first American in 18 years to win LPGA player of the year, and then rising to No. 1 in the world for four weeks, Lewis had a direct hand in bringing two tournaments to the LPGA Tour. One of them is this week, the Bahamas LPGA Classic, which grew out of her partnership with Ohio-based title sponsor Pure Silk.
She also aced what amounted to a pop quiz by the chief executive of Marathon Oil, which now sponsors a tournament in July.
