Stacy Lewis is the first American in 21 years to sweep the three biggest awards on the LPGA Tour.

Lewis closed with a 1-under 71 in the CME Group Tour Championship on Sunday. That was enough for her to win the points-based LPGA Tour player of the year award for the second time in three years. Lewis also won the Vare Trophy for the lowest scoring average and the LPGA Tour money title.

Inbee Park was the only player who could have kept Lewis from sweeping the awards. Park trailed in all three races. She never got it going at Tiburon Golf Club and finished four shots worse than Lewis.

The last American to sweep the LPGA Tour awards was Betsy King in 1993.
