PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Stacy Lewis is ready to finish one spot better.

Lewis has been racking up second-place finishes with some regularity since her last win in June 2014. Starting Thursday, she’ll revisit the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic where she won in 2012 and finished second to a record-setting Mi Jung Hur last year. Lewis is hoping for a breakthrough on The Senator Course at Capitol Hill, part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Lewis says winning has been on her mind after six-runner-up finishes since winning.

She was runner-up last week, too, when Lydia Ko won the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open with a par on the first hole of a playoff.

Hur snapped a five-year winless streak at last year’s tournament.
