LPGA Player of the Year Stacy Lewis teamed up with Betsy King to shoot 5 under par and win the nine-hole ISPS Handa Heroes charity event on Monday.
Four teams of two (one current LPGA player, one LPGA Legends Tour player) competed at TwinEagles Golf Club in Naples, Fla., site of last week’s CME Group Titleholders.
For their efforts, Lewis and King received $50,000 to donate to two charities of their choice: the Scoliosis Research Foundation and Golf Fore Africa.
“I knew Betsy could still play,” Lewis said, according to an LPGA release. “I was surprised with how far she could still hit it and she hit it really well and putts with the magic putter. I knew we’d team up well together.”
The other three teams were Brittany Lincicome-Jan Stephenson (4 under), Lexi Thompson-Pat Bradley (4 under) and Paula Creamer-Nancy Lewis (1 under). They each received $10,000 to donate to charity.
This event will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday on Golf Channel.
