Stacy Lewis Wins Portland Classic, Pledges Paycheck To Houston

04 Septembre 2017

England's Jodi Ewart Shadoff slipped out of contention at the Portland Classic after a one-over par 73 left her 10 adrift of leader Stacy Lewis.

Miyazato admitted she got emotional on the final hole of the tournament, and reflected on what she was going to miss the most about playing on the LPGA Tour. She posted four birdies, two pars and a bogey over her first seven holes but then parred the final 11 holes to finish with a total of 20-under 268.

Lewis led by three heading into today's final round over improving Thai golfer, Moriya Jutanugarn, but it would be Korea's Chun who would push Lewis to the limit, the 32-year-old Lewis being forced to save par with a lengthy putt at the 17th after Chun had moved within one with a birdie at the 16th.

Henderson, playing alongside Lewis, failed to break par for the first time in 11 career competitive rounds at Columbia-Edgewater, dashing the 19-year-old Canadian's bid to become the youngest three-time victor of a tournament in LPGA Tour history.

"It was probably one of the easiest rounds of the year, to be honest", Lewis said.

"I have been hitting solid and [gave] myself a lot of really good chances for birdie. It puts things in perspective and I have been motivated and more appreciative". "It was a really tough shot and to see it go in just made me really happy and it changed my day".

"I was feeling great", said Moriya.

Lewis has come close to victory any number of times since that 2014 win in Arkansas, achingly close 12 times, to be precise. She's been there for her friends as they've hoisted trophies, and she's not whined or pouted or thrown a club during what has to have been a frustrating period for her. Lewis is a consummate professional. I really enjoy playing with Stacy. "I think Friday I was maybe outside the cut line, made it back inside the cut line, and ended up making the cut at 3-under and just kind of clawed my way back up the top", said Piller.

"This is my favorite golf course all year", Lewis said during the awards ceremony with sponsors and tournament officials.

The sister of world No. 3 Ariya Jutanugarn is seeking her first career victory. Henderson played a five-hole stretch in 5 under in a 67, and Chun had a 68. "Stacy's play was good, too".

First place pays US$195,000 and second pays US$120,000.

The South Korean player tied for third last week in the Canadian Pacific Women's Open and has four runner-up finishes this season.
