Lewis donates Portland Classic winnings to Houston relief effort

Posted September 06, 2017

"I know it's been a while since I won". "I think putter was good, too ..."

For Lewis, who had not prevailed on the LPGA Tour since the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in June 2014, the victory meant far more than an end to her long winless skid.

So Sunday was a win-win-win, with Portland getting to see one of the game's premier players returning to the winner's circle in the process. You're gifted with a talent, you're gifted with an ability, and it's not just to go out there and play golf, play football, or whatever it is. She didn't know he had made the trip to OR until he appeared on the green after hiding out in the Golf Channel tower during the round.

"I was fine until he showed up, and then I started crying", Lewis said.

"When I said that I had the goal of winning the tournament -you've got to get a lot of things to go your way", an emotional Lewis said. "So just to have him here and get to share the win with him was pretty special".

Even better, Lewis' generous pledge led to more more for Harvey victims, with Lewis' sponsors stepping up with money. She stayed in close contact with Chadwell, who was back at their home. I was hitting a lot of good shots, a lot of good putts, and they just weren't going in.

"You have to hit shots".

Then, on Sunday, Lewis did something she had been waiting 38-plus months to do: win.

Chun cut the lead to two with birdies at the par-5 10th and 12th.

India condemns North Korea's nuclear test
The US has joined North Korea's regional neighbours in condemning the secretive communist state's latest nuclear weapons test. Such a strike would involve detonating a bomb in the atmosphere, instead of firing a long-range missile at a major U.S. city.

Henderson holed out from 82 yards for eagle on the par-4 11th and birdied Nos. There has just been a calmness about me this week.

After Chun's chip settled six feet from the hole, Lewis had two putts to win.

"It was a great round today", Chun said.

Stacy Lewis will join three other 2017 American winners in the Indy Women in Tech field: Cristie Kerr, Lexi Thompson, and Danielle Kang. I really enjoy play with Stacy. She had a hole-in-one Wednesday in the pro-am playing alongside Nancy Lopez, the only three-time victor in event history.

South Korean players' winning streak on the LPGA Tour has ended at five. She was at 17-under 199 through 54 holes, three clear of Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn.

Schwartzman strikes blow at US Open
In August, he became the youngest man to reach a Masters semifinal at the Rogers Cup in Montreal. Meanwhile, 12th-seeded Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta also reached the fourth round at the U.S.

Henderson was one of only two golfers now tied for 20th or better to shoot over par on Saturday.

The LPGA Tour now moves to Indianapolis for the Indy Women in Tech Championship ahead of the Evian Championship in France the following week.

"I was pretty happy", said Jutanugarn. I received a bouquet of flowers after the final hole and it got a little sentimental. "(My result) makes me more confident heading into to big tournaments coming up", she said.

Shakib led Bangladesh to magical victory against Australia at Mirpur Test
Taijul Islam's 3-60 and Mehedi Hasan's 2-80 helped Bangladesh a lot to make the apparently hard match easy for the Tigers. Glenn Maxwell was unbeaten on 8 and Matthew Wade was batting on five at the interval, with just the tailenders to come.
