      Lewis shoots 65 to win NW Arkansas Championship

      By KURT VOIGTAP Sports Writer

      ROGERS, Ark. (AP) - Stacy Lewis made a 7-foot birdie putt on the final hole Sunday in the NW Arkansas Championship to finally win an official event in her adopted state.

      The top-ranked Lewis, who played at the nearby University of Arkansas, earned an unofficial win in the rain-shortened 2007 tournament as an amateur. On Sunday, she closed with a 6-under 65 for a one-stroke victory.

      Lewis birdied three of her final holes for her third LPGA Tour victory of the year and 11th overall. She finished at 12-under 201 at Pinnacle Country Club.

      Lydia Ko, Cristie Kerr and Angela Stanford tied for second.

      Second-round leader Michelle Wie shot a 73 to tie for eighth at 8 under.
