After a frustrating defeat by Shanshan Feng's eagle on the 18th in the Reignwood LPGA Classic in Beijing and complaining about the Chinese fans behaviour, Stacy Lewis airs her irritation via Twitter.
Lewis had a one shot lead on the 18th, forcing Feng to go for the green if she stood a chance of victory.
Lucky or brilliant, Feng's second shot took a dramatic bounce just clearing the water hazard, bouncing forward onto the green, hitting the flag stick leaving an almost certain eagle. Feng went on to make the putt giving her a one shot victory.
In a post-round news conference, Lewis said: “I feel like it was just taken from me. You’d like to win on a good shot, but, obviously, it wasn’t a good shot. It’s very frustrating. It was a frustrating day just with the crowds and dealing with all that. It was hard to play today.”
Not long after Lewis continued to air her frustrations in a series of Tweets:
Congrats to Shan Shan on the win, crazy shot at 18. Very disappointed in the fans in China this week.— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013
Between all the cameras and cheering when I missed putts. It was just really hard to have fun out there. On to the next...— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013
Btw what till you see the shot on 18 that won it! Lets just say it involved a rock and the flag stick...— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013
Later, two of the Tweets were deleted and followed by what is believed to be a final Tweet before Lewis deleted her account:
For those whose were actually supportive on twitter, sorry to say I will be signing off of here. I'm sorry I say what I believe.— Stacy Lewis (@Stacy_Lewis) October 6, 2013
