For Lewis, who had not prevailed on the LPGA Tour since the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in June 2014, the victory meant far more than an end to her long winless skid.
Stacy Lewis shot an 8-under 64 on Friday for a share of the lead with two-time defending championBrooke Henderson and first-round leader In Gee Chun at 10-under 134 at tree-lined Columbia Edgewater.
"When I said that I had the goal of winning the tournament, and you've got to get a lot of things right to go your way", Lewis said immediately following her victory.
It was also revealed following her win that her primary sponsor KPMG would be matching her winnings, doubling the donation amount to $US390,000 ($NZ 544,844).
She was staring at the opportunity to win three straight when she teed off on her first hole at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club, but, after leading going into Round 3, she had slipped all the way outside the top 10 after only three holes - and two bogeys. But a huge par putt from Lewis sent the tourney to the 18th, where Chun missed the green and Lewis hit it from a fairway bunker and made a two-putt par to save her emotional victory. "That's more important than any win". "I have been hitting solid and [gave] myself a lot of really good chances for birdie".
Finishing second in tournaments, "sometimes it's your fault, sometimes it's not", she said.
"I'm excited to kind of get that monkey off my back and know I can do it, that I can hit the shots I need to and hit the putts when I need to", Lewis said. "Everybody talks about it", she said. "I was kind of struggling to make the decision the last few years".
Lewis began Sunday at 17-under, three ahead of Jutanugarn and four in front of Chun.
The 32-year-old Japanese will call it a career after taking part in the September 14-17 Evian Championship in France. She stayed in close contact with Chadwell, who was back at their home. Lewis finished 20 under overall.
Henderson played a five-hole stretch in 5 under in a 67, and Chun had a 68. "I know Stacy have a little hard time before, so I want to give her a big congratulations".

For that though, Sri Lanka will need to raise its game significantly, because India is not going to be complacent about this game. For Rohit Sharma, who had a bad ODI record in Sri Lanka before the start of the series, it was an interesting series.
