Former University of Arkansas All-American Stacy Lewis won her first professional event at the 40th Annual Kraft Nabisco Championship at the Dinah Shore Championship Course in Rancho Mirage, California this past weekend.

Lewis, a four-time All-Southeastern Conference and All-American for the Razorbacks, began the final day of the tournament in second place after moving back and forth between the lead and the top spots for the first three rounds.

The Woodlands, Texas, native opened play with a six-under 66 in a round with six birdies. She carded a 69 on the second round and had a 71 on her third third scorecard. Lewis finished with a 69 for 275. The win earned Lewis $300,000.

Lewis battled with Yani Tseng in the final round and the players exchanged the lead until Lewis birdied the 389-yard par four 12th hole with a 12-foot putt. With that birdie, Lewis took a two-shot lead over the defending champion and current #1 player in the world in Tseng.

Lewis tied for fifth as an amateur in 2007 and becomes the fourth player to win her first golf event at the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Song-Hee Kim (LPGA)

Song-Hee Kim will be starting the third round of the LPGA’s first major tournament, the Kraft Nabisco Championship on top of the leaderboard followed by several winners of major LPGA tournaments.

The 21-year-old South Korean native at number 14 in the world, is the highest ranking LPGA Tour member without a victory.

Kim has top-10-finishes in all three events this season as she chases her first victory. Her two-round total of 7-under 137 in the season’s first major gave her a 0ne-shot lead over majors winners Cristie Kerr (67), Karen Stupples (69) and top-ranked Lorena Ochoa (70).

Karrie Webb (70), a two-time winner at Mission Hills golf course in Rancho Mirage, California, and a seven-time major winner overall, was two strokes back along with Stacy Lewis (68), Yani Tseng (71), the 2008 LPGA Championship winner, and first-round leader Suzann Petterson (73) were  4 under par.

Suzann Pettersen is the first round leader in the LPGA Tour’s first major of the season.

The Norwegian star golfer, trying to make a comeback from a hip injury, shot a bogey-free 5-under 67 in the Kraft Nabisco Championship on Thursday to take a one-stroke lead over former champion Lorena Ochoa, who missed birdie putts on her final two holes.

Pettersen did take a cortisone shot for her hip, but there didn’t seem to be any lingering effects showing in her game. Suzann hit 12 fairways and 13 greens in regulation at Mission Hills golf course in Rancho Mirage, California.

Pettersen has garnered two top-10 finishes in three tournaments in 2010. The hip injury kept her from swinging a club for three weeks.

There were three majors champions in a group at 69, Karen Stupples, Yani Tseng and Karrie Webb.

Defending champion Brittany Lincicome put in a birdie putt on the 12th hole to drop to 4 under par before bogeying numbers 13 and 15 to finish with a 70.
