Stacy Lewis Wins Portland Classic, Pledges Paycheck To Houston

Stacy Lewis Wins Portland Classic, Pledges Paycheck To Houston

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.

"I can't wait to get home to Houston and help my hometown recover", she said.

Stacy Lewis donated her £150,000 winnings to the flood victims in Houston after holding off the challenge of Chun In-gee to claim victory at the Cambia Portland Classic. KPMG contacted Golf Channel during the telecast on Sunday, unbeknownst to Lewis.

Lewis held off South Korea's In Gee Chun, finishing at 20-under-par 268 with a final round of 3-under 69 at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.

Hezbollah says bulk of IS convoy has left Syrian government area
The coalition says it has struck Isil fighters in vehicles moving towards the convoy but will not strike any civilian vehicles. Hezbollah and the Syrian army had escorted it from west Syria as part of a truce deal.

Chun has four runner-up finishes in 2017 but hasn't yet cracked the winner's circle.

Those three are two shots ahead of the rest of the field, with Jodi Ewart Shadoff of England (67), Ai Miyazato of Japan (67) and Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand (69) tied for fourth at eight under. "I can hit the shots when I need to and hit the putts when I need to".

"When I said that, I had the goal of winning the tournament", Lewis said.

Lewis moved to Houston as a youngster and her husband is the women's golf coach at the University of Houston.

The Oval evacuated over 'crossbow bolt' in ground
We will review our security arrangements but threats can be so wide-ranging. "We don't know much more at the moment". A meteor? What is that on the field of play its poking up out the ground? "It just shows the world we live in".

Annoucing her pledge "probably made things harder, because there were more people following me, more phone messages and more social media".

Lewis's round included three successive birdies on six, seven and eight, as she was joined in the lead at 10 under by two-time defending champion Brooke Henderson and overnight leader In Gee Chun. She proceeded to win the event and the $195,000 prize that goes with it.

"We're going to be able to help people rebuild houses and get their homes back". Annika Sorenstam had a chance in 2004 for a third straight at Columbia Edgewater, but she finished two shots behind Hee-Won Han. She also broke through in Portland after finishing second twice - two strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and four shots behind Brooke Henderson previous year.

Chun missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the hole.

LG launches V30 at IFA 2017: Here are the specs and features
Today at IFA 2017 in Berlin the South Korean firm revealed the V30 in full and it looks to build off of the successes of the G6. LG Cine Log preserves wide dynamic range and colour gamut and log gamma curve which comes in handy during post production.

Lewis, 32, has endured some frustration trying to collect her 12th LPGA title. The LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2013 and sister of world number three Ariya Jutanugarn, she is seeking her first career victory. "It's nice to see yourself do that again".
