Japanese club manufacturer Mizuno today announced a multi-year equipment deal with Stacy Lewis, current No. 3 in the Rolex Rankings. The agreement extends a long standing relationship aiding Lewis rise to the top of the women’s game.
Alongside Mizuno, Lewis has become a leading light in US golf – the first American in twenty-one years to bring home all three prestigious LPGA season honours – LPGA Rolex Player of the Year, Vare Trophy and Money List Title. In addition to Stacy’s Mizuno irons and wedges, the extension covers a return to a Mizuno driver. Lewis teed up at Thailand’s HONDA event with a JPX850 FAST TRACK for the first time.
“I’m excited to start the 2015 campaign on the right foot by re-signing with Mizuno,” said Lewis. “Mizuno has been my equipment company since college, and as I pursue more wins, I’m really happy to keep the team intact that has been so central to my success.”
Lewis is poised to build on a stellar 2014 LPGA campaign that resulted in wins at the North Texas LPGA Shootout, Shoprite LPGA Classic and the Wal-Mart NW Arkansas Championship. Lewis secured her spot atop the podium at the season-ending Rolex Award reception by earning three wins, eighteen top-10 finishes and led the LPGA in rounds under par. Stacy finished the year No. 3 in the world, No.1 on Tour in birdies, and second in Greens in Regulation.
“Stacy is so popular across the world and especially Japan,” said Akito Mizuno, President of Mizuno Corporation. “She competes with incredible intensity and has overcome barriers with determination and willpower. We admire her and are delighted she will continue to represent the Mizuno name.”
Lewis follows in the footsteps of many of golf’s great players in playing Mizuno and re-joins an elite stable of players including Luke Donald, Charles Howell III and Chris Wood.
Lewis will play Mizuno’s JPX850 driver, fairway and hybrid, alongside JPX850 BORON Forged irons and MP-T5 wedges.
