Lewis continues good play with victory

GALLOWAY, NJ. -- Stacy Lewis shot an even-par 71 Sunday to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic.

Lewis finished 54 holes at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club at 12-under-par 201. It was Lewis' third LPGA win and her second of 2012; she won the Mobile LPGA Classic in April. And she reached the quarterfinals in the match play event two weeks ago.

Last year, her first career victory came in a major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

This victory was worth $225,000 from a $1.5 million purse.

Katherine Hull sank a 10-foot birdie putt to close with a 68 and finish alone in second place at 8-under 205.

Mika Miyazato and Azahara Munoz were both at 206 after rounds of 68 and 69, respectively. Lexi Thompson, Anna Nordqvist, and Hee-Won Han were both at 207.

Haas hangs on to win

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kirk Triplett put together the best round of golf anyone had ever played Sunday in the Principal Charity Classic.

But Jay Haas was brilliant for three rounds instead of one, proving yet again that nobody can dominate the Glen Oaks Country Club like he can.

Haas finished with a 16-under 197 total to win the tournament by five strokes, becoming the first golfer to win the Champions Tour event in Iowa three times.

Haas, the winner in 2007 and 2008, led by three shots after shooting 65 in the second round and made it stand up with a final round 5-under 66.

Triplett set the course record with a 9-under 62 and finished second at 11-under 202 along with Larry Mize. Fred Funk and Tom Lehman tied for third at 10-under.
