NAPLES, Fla. (AP) Stacy Lewis was three shots out of the lead Thursday and one step closer to the largest payoff in women's golf at the CME Group Tour Championship.

Lewis overcame the kind of tension she typically feels on the weekend at majors. She held it together with her short game, made a 25-foot eagle putt late in her opening round and wound up with a 3-under 69 to trail Julieta Granada by three shots.

"It's going to be a long week if we're feeling that on Thursday," Lewis said.
