Stacy Lewis, a remarkable American golfer who currently plays on the LPGA Tour, can be listed as one of those top celebrities whose career may never have begun because the budding star was treated at the tender age of 11 for a clinical condition known as scoliosis, which is associated with spinal curvature. As a scoliosis patient, she wears a corset brace on her back for 18 hours a day, but despite this setback, Stacy has been impressively active in her junior golf career.
According to the budding golf star, golf became a refuge for her because it was one of the rare occasions when the back brace could be removed. She told Golf Digest in an interview that she was attracted to golf because it gave her the opportunity to get out of the back supports for six hours a day. Stacy concluded by saying that if she had been born with a healthy back, chances are that we would not have heard of Stacy Lewis. Today the golf champion is a two-time winner of major championships, namely the Women’s British Open 2013 and the Kraft Nabisco Championship 2011.
