Lewis hangs on to win LPGA Classic

Lewis, who had led the field after the second and third rounds, looked to have been caught by Thompson, whose brilliant final round 65 saw her finish on 16-under-par 272.

Lewis bogeyed the 15th hole to end up tied for the lead, but she bounced back with a birdie on the next hole that was good enough for her to wrap up a one-shot victory.

France’s Karine Icher finished third, a short further back, while Azahara Munoz, Ryu So Yeon, Karrie Webb, Brittany Lincicome and Yoo Sun Young shared fourth place at -12.
