Stacy Lewis secures emotional victory in Portland

Share

Lewis was at the Canadian Pacific Women's Open last week when forecasts grew dire in her hometown.

"It would honestly probably be one of the most special", Lewis said about the possibility of adding to her 11 LPGA Tour wins.

Miyazato, who won four times in 2010 and ascended to No. 1 in the world, said earlier this season that 2017 would be her last. "Sometimes I had small stress from that part".

"I've been motivated for one, but I've just been extremely calm". "I made a lot of birdies and an eagle, which was awesome, although I made a couple bogeys that I'd like to take off the card for the next two days".

Chun rolled in a 25-foot birdie putt on the par-3 No. 16 to get to 19-under, one off the pace. "Seems to be working so far", Henderson said.

We been talking and it's pretty good talk, and it just kind of like narrow my focus a little, you know, like closer, like tight it up a little bit. "I have been hitting solid and [gave] myself a lot of really good chances for birdie".

"I'm just really excited".

The Bears averaged 6.6 yards per play. "I saw the replay, and there was a touch of celebration there", Odom said. The Bears managed to score 35 first half points and rack up 380 with several big plays in the first half .

Henderson set the tournament 72-hole record of 21-under 267 in 2015. She bounced back immediately, however, with a birdie on the very next hole. Henderson has four LPGA Tour victories, also winning the major KPMG Women's PGA past year and the Meijer LPGA Classic in June.

Moriya Jutanugarn, Brooke Henderson, Lexi Thompson and Amy Yang were among other notables in the field.

She was staring at the opportunity to win three straight when she teed off on her first hole at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club, but, after leading going into Round 3, she had slipped all the way outside the top 10 after only three holes - and two bogeys.

"This is my favorite golf course all year", Lewis said during the awards ceremony with sponsors and tournament officials. "Stacy's play was good, too. It's important to get the landing yardage right so it stays pin-high and not bounce over the green".

Lewis is trying to break through in Portland after finishing second twice - two strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and four shots behind Henderson a year ago. The Houston-area player is donating her earnings to Hurricane Harvey relief.

Despite the popularity of the Korean, the emotion surrounding Lewis' offer was tangible as she holed a three-footer for par at the last and the victory. The people down there got it way tougher than us. Top-ranked So Yeon Ryu, playing alongside Thompson, missed the cut by a stroke with rounds of 74 and 70.
