For those of you who read our blog on a somewhat regular basis, you know that we like to post stuff on here about Beth's sister Stacy who just recently turned professional as a golfer. Well, this weekend she made her professional debut in the US Open in Edina, Minnesota. We all know how good of a player Stacy is and know she's going to be a great professional, but we didn't exactly expect what has happened. Going into the final round tomorrow, Stacy is leading the US Open by one shot. We are actually driving to Dallas early tomorrow morning to catch a flight to Minneapolis so we can watch Stacy play. This is huge and I can't wait to watch Stacy play on such a huge stage! Below is a story about her:

Rookie Lewis leads US Women's Open
5 hours ago

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AFP) — American Stacy Lewis, who turned pro less than three weeks ago, fired a six-under 67 to seize a one shot lead after the third round of the US Women's Open on Saturday.

Playing in her first tournament as a pro, Lewis is not afraid to toot her own horn.

"To tell you the truth, I'm not really that surprised," Lewis said. "I felt I could play and compete at this level.

"I finished fifth at the (Kraft Nabisco Championship) last year and that really showed me I could play at this level."

American compatriot Paul Creamer is one shot adrift of the 23-year old Lewis at the major championship.

Lewis displayed composure on the Interlachen course despite strong winds Saturday.

Lewis moved to a nine-under 210 total, one stroke ahead of fellow Creamer (69), with Swede Helen Alfredsson (71) and South Korean Inbee Park (71) two shots behind.

Halfway leader Angela Park, of Brazil, shot 75 to slide five shots off the lead, while Annika Sorenstam left herself a steep hill to climb, seven strokes off the pace after a frustrating day on the greens.
