Americans dominated the LPGA Tour right out of the gate, winning 11 of the first 17 events, and at the end, it was all Lydia Ko. In between, Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson and Mo Martin had their moments in the sun.
From Lydia Ko cashing in on a $1.5 million payday to Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson clinching their first majors to Paula Creamer's incredible 75-foot eagle putt to win a playoff, the LPGA had a little of everything in 2014.
The Dutch had their acting talents to thank as they barely escaped against Mexico in the World Cup. Meanwhile, Brad Keselowski had a wee bit of trouble with a champagne bottle while celebrating his NASCAR win in Kentucky.
Once dominant in the U.S. Women's Open, Americans have won just twice in the past nine years. Expect a show of force this year as U.S. players, led by world No. 1 Stacy Lewis, have lit up the tour with eight wins in 14 events.
