ROGERS Former Arkansas golfer Stacy Lewis tied for fourth at the Walmart NW Arkansas LPGA Championship Sunday in Rogers.
Lewis went into the final round tied for the lead on Sunday, but hit for par on the last day and tied for fourth with Lydia Ko and I.K. Kim by recording a score of 10-under par throughout the event.
During the weekend, Lewis' hometown crowd followed her and could be heard "calling the hogs" to show support. She promised a surprise if she made the final day at the 17th hole and it came to fruition when her caddy wore a plastic Razorback hat.
Inbee Park and So Yeon Ryu tied for first in regulation (12-under par) and Park won the event with a birdie in the playoff round. Park is the world's top-ranked golfer and earned her fifth win of the season at the NW Arkansas LPGA Championship.
Defending champion Mika Miyazoto finished second at 11-under par.
