Video: The remarkable shot that led to Stacy Lewis quitting Twitter. Seriously.
By Alex Myers
"Let's just say it involved a rock and the flagstick..." That's how Stacy Lewis described on Twitter the shot by Shanshan Feng that led to an unlikely winning eagle at the Reignwood LPGA Classic. We couldn't have said it any better.
Check out what turned out to be arguably the best and luckiest shot of 2013:
It appears Feng thought her ball was heading into a hazard, but after receiving two fortunate bounces, she converted the short eagle putt to the delight of the Beijing fans, ending in remarkable fashion the first-ever LPGA event in China. Unfortunately for Lewis, it wasn't such a fairy-tale ending.
Aside from being nipped by a shot thanks to Feng's good fortune, her post-round comments describing the way the tournament ended didn't go over well with many who thought she sounded like a sore loser. Lewis also complained about the Chinese fans rooting against her and bothering her by snapping photographs.
The end result? A frustrated Lewis deleted her Twitter account, which leads to an entirely different discussion. Fortunately for golf fans, though, a clip of the improbable shot still exists. Sorry, Stacy, but it's worth watching.
