Series: Golf Buzz

LPGA star Stacy Lewis -- the highest ranked American player in the ladies game at No. 3 in the world -- delivered one of the great shots in major championship golf during the final round of the Ricoh Women's British Open on her way to victory.
Playing the 17th hole at St. Andrews -- The Road Hole -- in the final round, Lewis hit her second shot on the par 4 with a 5-iron from 200 yards. The ball settled just 3 feet from the hole, setting up a birdie.
Watch the amazing shot here, as well as Lewis' description:
Carrying that momentum to the final hole at the birthplace of golf, Lewis made one last birdie. She finished with an even-par 72 to win the tournament by two shots. It was her second major on the LPGA Tour, ending a record streak of 10 straight majors won by Asian players.
