Two days after Stacy Lewis claimed the No. 1 spot in the Rolex Rankings, Omega has announced its sponsorship of the LPGA player. Lewis won the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup on March 17, her second consecutive LPGA victory and the seventh of her career.

“I am honored to join the Omega family,” Lewis said. “This is such an exciting time in my career and I am proud to represent a brand that showcases determination, elegance and power – all things that I value both on and off the course.”

In 2012, Lewis earned Player of the Year honors following a four-win season. She posted 15 additional top 10s, including three runner-up finishes, and led the LPGA in birdies, eagles and rounds in the 60s.

Omega is the title sponsor of three international events – the European Masters, Dubai Ladies Masters and the Dubai Desert Classic – and in 2011 was announced as the official timekeeper of the PGA of America. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
