The number two female golfer in the world, Stacy Lewis sat down with our own Zachery Lashway to discuss her journey to the top of the LPGA community. Lewis began golfing at the age of 8, and quickly learned it would not be an easy road. At 11 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis and forced to wear a brace for the majority of her childhood. She kicked it into gear in high school to gain a golf scholarship to University of Arkansas, and then decided to pursue her shot at professional golf.

Her success earlier this year propelled her to the number 1 ranking for four weeks in a row! A year ago, Lewis was crowned the champion of the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway, NJ. After the destruction that overcame the Jersey Shore in November 2012, Lewis donated $20,000 for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The 2013 ShopRite Classic begins on May 31st as Lewis will try to defend her title.
