Kraft Nabisco Championship: Lewis bogeys from sand on 15

April 3, 2011 |  4:52 pm

Leader Stacy Lewis made her first mistake on the back nine, sending her second shot on the 387-yard par-four 15th into a high-lipped bunker, and after her sand shot made it within five feet of the cup, Lewis missed the par putt.

With three holes left, Lewis now leads defending champion Yani Tseng by one stroke. This was Lewis' first bogey of the day and she is 13 under for the tournament with two of the three hardest holes left to play. Tseng left her 20-foot birdie putt about two inches short on the 15th or it would have been a two-shot swing and a tie for the lead.

The winner of this $2-million Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage gets a check for $300,000. It would be the 22-year-old Tseng's fourth major and the 26-year-old Lewis' first tournament win of any kind.
