RANCHO MIRAGE -- Stacy Lewis, the American who climbed to No. 1 in the world rankings two weeks ago, finished the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club with a final-round even-par 72 and a four-day total of 287. When the day is over she'll be in the middle of the pack. Lewis, who won here two years ago, didn't seem distraught about the mediocre week. "I've got a lot of events to play, and I've won twice already this year," said Lewis, who will remain No. 1 in the Rolex World Rankings that measure the performance of the LPGA golfers.

Nineteen-year-old Lexi Thompson won the Kraft Nabisco Championship on Sunday by three shots over Michelle Wie.

RANCHO MIRAGE -- Stacy Lewis, who recently took over No. 1 in the women's world golf rankings, has struggled through three rounds of the season's first major for LPGA players, the Kraft Nabisco Champonship at Mission Hills Country Club. Lewis, a 28-year-old who won here two years ago, shot a second consectuve 71 on a day when scoring seems to be low and is one under par for the tournament. That leaves her tied for 25th at the moment. "It wasn't a very good day," Lewis said. "I didn't hit it very close and didn't give myself many birdie opportunities.

Lexi Thompson, seeking her first LPGA major title, took a five-shot lead midway through Sunday's final round of the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Thompson, a 19-year-old Floridian, made four birdies on the front nine at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage to reach 14 under par for the tournament. Michelle Wie, who started the day tied with Thompson for the lead, and Se Ri Pak of South Korea were tied for second place at nine under. Wie, also seeking her first major and first LPGA Tour win of any kind since 2010, birdied the second hole but couldn't maintain the momentum.

Stacy Lewis made a 15-foot putt for par on the 17th hole, a shot that took a hard left turn as it slowed. It was as if a GPS voice in Lewis' head told her ball, "Left turn in two feet. " When the ball dropped, Lewis bent over. Her head was down; her shaking hands were on her legs. Lewis didn't look up until Yani Tseng finished that same par-three 17th hole with a dispiriting bogey. Lewis, a 26-year-old who had never won a professional tournament, now has a big one. With a final round of three-under-par 69, Lewis finished the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage with a 13-under 72-hole total of 275 and a three-shot win over Tseng, the defending champion.

The fact that an American golfer is ranked No. 1 in the world is not a surprise. The fact that a second golfer is ranked No. 1 - a woman - is very much a surprise. Of course, everyone knows Tiger Woods; the other is Stacy Lewis, and she has been talking a little Twitter trash with her top-ranked counterpart. "I tweeted Tiger, 'Congrats. Welcome back to No. 1.'" She was being funny. "Apparently in [140] characters, people couldn't find the humor in that," Lewis said. Lewis' ascension to No. 1 caught a lot of people by surprise.

Easy. That's how Brittany Lincicome described her six-under-par 66 Thursday in the first round of the $2-million Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage. Stacy Lewis described her afternoon of golf a little differently. Lewis actually made a bogey in the 100-degree heat and had to step up and make a six-foot putt to save that bogey. But then came a stretch of three straight birdies and so, like Lincicome, Lewis also shot a 66. That puts the sometime roommates and frequent dinner companions together in the lead after the first round of the LPGA's first major of the season.

Michelle Wie caromed her opening drive off the cart path on the first hole and then off the head of a girl in the gallery and then into the fairway. The little girl was fine, Wie made par and then went on to tie the lowest score of the day Friday at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Wie's five-under-par 67 gave her a two-day total of three-under 141 and has the 21-year-old tied for eighth, six shots behind leader Stacy Lewis. Lewis held her nerve when she had to fight for some pars early and finished with a 69 Friday and a two-day total of nine-under 135 at the blistering-hot Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage.

A couple of years ago, there were only 24 tournaments on the LPGA Tour schedule. And in a controversial moment only a year ago, players were asked to donate all prize money from one tour event to charities rather than their own bank accounts. But now, the LPGA is heading into its first major of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship beginning Thursday at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, on a high note. Defending champion Stacy Lewis announced Wednesday that she had signed a sponsorship deal with KPMG, an audit, tax and advisory firm.

When the Solheim Cup, a team competition that pits women golfers from the United States against Europe, returns to the United States in 2017, it will be at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club, which hosted the 1999 U.S. Senior Open Championship. The U.S. lost the Cup to Europe last month in Colorado. The top-ranked U.S. golfer, Stacy Lewis, said, "Playing in the Solheim Cup is one of the greatest experiences that you can have as a golfer. The atmosphere and excitement that's created by the fans is unlike any other event in golf and I can't wait to see the amazing display put on by the great fans in Des Moines.” The 2015 Solheim Cup will take place at Golf Course St. Leon-Rot in Germany.

The U.S. women will be seeking revenge when the Solheim Cup tees off at the Colorado Golf Club later this week. Two years ago, the Americans headed into the final day of the Cup tied 8-8 with Europe but watched their three toughest players -- Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer and Cristie Kerr -- struggle in the wind and rain en route to a 15-13 loss. “I remember the feeling waking up Monday morning in Ireland and thinking, 'Man, I'm going to have to listen to the Europeans for two years,"' said Angela Stanford, another team member.

Bill Haas played the best golf in the toughest conditions Friday in the rain-delayed Memorial at Dublin, Ohio. When the second round was suspended as dark clouds rolled in and forced the third stoppage in play, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy were close to each other on the leaderboard, even if they were miles away from Haas, who had a five-under 67.

Phil Mickelson and Nick Watney wound up tied for the lead Saturday in the Wells Fargo Championship, minus much separation from the rest of the field. Mickelson hit a shot out-of-bounds on the 15th hole and hit another shot that struck a spectator in the head, costing him three shots over the last four holes at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C., in his round of one-over 73. Watney hit a semi-shank with a six-iron on the par-three 17th, took double bogey and had to settle for a 71. It felt like a small consolation that they were tied at eight-under 208, one shot ahead of George McNeill , who had his share of trouble down the stretch for a 72. Instead of pulling away from the pack, their mistakes in a wild final hour allowed a dozen players to get within three shots of the lead.
