LANCASTER, Pa. – Stacy Lewis will pick herself up off the mat again.

She promises.

After fighting back from a double bogey on the front nine Sunday at the U.S. Women’s Open, she got herself right back in the game at Lancaster Country Club, moving into a tie for the lead with four holes to go, only to be derailed again with a double bogey at the 15th.

“I'll get over this, eventually,” Lewis said. “But it will take a day or two.”

Lewis shot even-par 70 and tied for third. She is heading to the Marathon Classic this week.

“Just going and playing again right away will be nice, because I'm playing well,” Lewis said. “I like the way I'm playing. So just not taking any time off, I think, is going to be a good thing.”

Lewis, whose 11 LPGA titles include two majors, has battled through a year of almosts. She endured another Sunday. She has recorded six second-place finishes and now three third-place finishes since her last victory a year ago. She lost the first major of the year, the ANA Inspiration, in a playoff.

“There are two swings I'd like to have back, but other than that I played great,” Lewis said. “I fought my way through it. Proud of the way I hung in there. Through 14 holes, I was tied for the lead and had a chance. Given the start I had, I'd say it was a pretty good day.”
