Nov. 3 is rapidly approaching for mom-to-be Stacy Lewis. And her priorities are already beginning to shift.
Instead of thinking about her next practice session or shot on the course, Lewis’ mind drifts frequently to how she’ll decorate the baby’s room and when her next nap is coming.
But, this week is a little different.
She returns to the state of Arkansas for the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Friday through Sunday at Pinnacle Golf Course, which is just 25 miles north of her four-year college home of Fayetteville.
“I’m super excited to back,” said Lewis in the media center on Tuesday. “It’s just a week I really love.”
Lewis gushes with pride when she gets to talk about Arkansas and the program she helped build from the ground up. She arrived in Fayetteville in 2005 and immediately made her mark. She won the SEC Championship as a freshman and bookended her career with another conference crown in 2008. In 2007, she owned college golf and won the individual National Championship.
