EDITORIAL: Toledo-born golfer plays in Jamie Farr Classic

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) – Toledo-born Stacy Lewis is having a phenomenal year on the LPGA. 

She has won two tournaments, she is ranked second in the world and is the No. 1 U.S. women's golfer. 

This is all the more remarkable when you consider she had to overcome scoliosis and wore a back brace for seven years as a teenager. She had serious surgery and a prolonged recovery period. Hers, is an inspirational story worthy of your cheers. 

Lewis will be in town this week for the Jamie Farr Classic. Her presence adds some local luster to an LPGA Tour that has struggled to maintain a prominent place in American sports.  

If you get a chance, spend a day at the Jamie Farr. It's good for the city. And if you do, find Stacy Lewis out on the course. I am sure she would love to have your support.

Good luck, Stacy.
