U.S. 'best golfing nation' at International Crown

GURNEE, Ill. – The words washing over Stacy Lewis were sweeter than any douse of celebratory champagne.

“To be called the best golfing nation is pretty satisfying, just to hear that being announced when we're getting those trophies,” Lewis said Sunday evening after the United States won the ULInternational Crown. “That was so cool for me, because we're under constant scrutiny of, `Why aren't the Americans playing well? Why aren't they winning?’ I don't know how else to say it, other than it's just really satisfying.”

This looked like it might be an epically bad year for the United States in women’s golf, when June rolled around and Lexi Thompson was the only American winner of an LPGA event. Now, there looms the possibility it might be an epically grand summer, with Brittany Lang winning the U.S. Women’s Open two weeks ago, with the Ricoh Women’s British Open next week and the Olympics a couple weeks after that.

All of a sudden, the Americans have momentum working for them.

“I think we're all pumped for the major next week,” Lewis said. “Everybody is playing well.

“I had a feeling that this could happen, because we were all playing well at the U.S. Open. Cristie Kerr and I kind of talked about that. Hopefully, the four of us can ride some momentum and bring another trophy back to the U.S.”
