VIDEO: How Stacy Lewis Overcame Scoliosis to Become a Champion Golfer
YOU MAY ALREADY KNOW THE STORY about Stacy Lewis, an LPGA Tour player, a two-time major winner and world No. 3 golfer (Rolex Rankings).
In this short video, Lewis talks about growing up with scoliosis, wearing a back brace for six and a half years and eventually having back surgery. She didn't let it stop her from becoming a champion golfer and now encouraging kids who face the same challenge.
"A lot of things you go through on the golf course," Lewis says, "they help you deal with things in life. It's taught me so much about myself, more than anything. I had the door slammed in my face so many times, and I still found a way to keep opening it. I can get through anything."
Lewis opened with a 69 at this week's Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in Daly City, California.
