LPGA star to donate entire event earnings to Hurricane Harvey relief

GOLF: Stacy Lewis to donate Portland Classic winnings to Harvey victims

With 11 LPGA Tour wins already under her belt, Lewis commented: "It would honestly probably be one of the most special".

Lewis embraced and kissed husband Gerrod Chadwell, the University of Houston women's golf coach, on the 18th green.

But Chun was unable to find the birdie she needed over the final two holes to force a play-off, and Lewis held her composure to complete an emotional win with her 11th consecutive par.

Brittany Altomare and Moriya Jutanugarn tied for 3rd position but such was the quality of the battle between Lewis and Chun they finished five shots out of second position. Henderson had a 74 to drop into a tie for 13th at eight under.

She had played just one match since May heading to Flushing Meadows after injury wrecked her grass-court season. Sharapova, the world number 146, had needed a wild card into the tournament, where she was champion in 2006.

This week, she had a unqiue calmness about her from start to finish, and especially over the tension-packed final holes. The 2010 Portland victor plans to retire after The Evian Championship in two weeks in France.

Chun shot a bogey-less 66. I knew it was going to be hard. Everybody talks about it.

"I hit a really good chip", Lewis said. "You have to get a lot of things right, to go your way".

First place pays US$195,000 and second pays US$120,000. You have to hit a little fade or a little draw. "Everybody talks about it", she said. "My caddie (Travis Wilson) has been here way more times than anybody probably in this field, and so I think we have an advantage as far as knowing the golf course". She bounced back immediately, however, with a birdie on the very next hole.

The India national cricket team is high on confidence and they should be able to carry the same momentum into today's match too. Virat Kohli moves level with Ricky Ponting! Instead it was Ajinkya Rahane (No. 27) opening with Rohit Sharma (No. 45).

Miyazato is retiring at the end of the season and this is her last official LPGA Tour event on American soil. "Make some, miss some, but it's still pretty solid round", Jutanugarn said. It wound up in the back rough. "To do it when I added pressure to myself is a pretty good, pretty cool deal".

Lewis rebounded from a bogey at the par-3 16th with a 5-foot birdie putt at the hard par-4 17th.

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. "Always learn something new every time when we play in the final group". During that span, she won $4.2 million, with 37 finishes in the top 10 and 12 runner-up showings.

Lewis has come close to victory any number of times since that 2014 win in Arkansas, achingly close 12 times, to be precise.
