Congratulations to Stacy Lewis, Miki Sakai, Florentyna Parker, Molly Aronsson, Alena Sharp, and Karin Sjodin

Sometimes you're the giant, sometimes you're the giant killer.  That was the story of the week for Rolex #1 Stacy Lewis, with a gigantic win on her home turf, and Miki Sakai, with a gargantuan takedown of the JLPGA's #1 golfer, Sun-Ju Ahn, in a 2-hole playoff.

And then sometimes you're the last player standing.  That was the story of the week for Florentyna Parker on the LET and Molly Aronsson on the Symetra Tour.  Parker followed up a rare double eagle (or albatross or whatever) with 4 straight pars to hold off fellow Brit Holly Clyburn (who bogeyed the 17th after eagling the same short par 5 as Parker).  Aronsson shot even par on a day when everyone ahead of her went over par.

But most often you need tons of persistence and perseverance.  That was the story of the week for Alena Sharp and Karin Sjodin, who broke the $1M mark in career LPGA winnings yesterday in NW Arkansas.

Congratulations to all!
