Kraft Nabisco Championship: Lewis grows lead to two shots

April 3, 2011 |  4:33 pm

Yani-tseng_300 Stacy Lewis, showing not a bit of nerves though she has yet to win an LPGA Tour event, birdied the 389-yard par-four 12th hole with a pretty 12-foot birdie putt that caused her to sneak in a fist pump as she walked to the 13th tee.

Lewis now has a two-shot lead over defending champion Yani Tseng, who is ranked No. 1 in the world and aiming to win her fourth major at the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage.

Both Lewis and Tseng parred the 404-yard par-four 13th hole and are headed to the par-three 14th. Morgan Pressel is alone in third, six shots behind Lewis, who is 14 under for the tournament, and four shots behind Tseng. This now appears to be a match-play battle between Lewis and Tseng.
