ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Stacy Lewis fell in love with the worst of St. Andrews.

The gray, old town lived up to its reputation the morning that Lewis arrived with the rest of the U.S. Curtis Cup team in the late spring of 2008, her final tournament as an amateur. They drove straight to the Old Course, and Lewis was in awe.

"We got off the plane and we got here early in the morning, and it was raining sideways and we all put on our rain jackets and rain gear and we came out and just walked around," Lewis said.

"Instantly, I fell in love with it. I think it's more the history than anything, just knowing all the great champions that have played here."

Lewis can add her name to the list.
