Stacy Lewis in position to make big hurricane donation

Stacy Lewis in position to make big hurricane donation

The eagle shot on the par 4, 11 hole, was a really tough shot, she added. "It would be probably one of my most special wins, just to be able to do this for the people in Texas and do it, too, when everybody is watching". Prior to the tournament, she pledged to donate all of her winnings this week to relief efforts.

"When I said that I had the goal of winning the tournament, you've got to get a lot of things right, to go your way", Lewis said.

Lewis moved to Houston as a youngster and her husband is the University of Houston women's golf coach. Though she is an LPGA rookie, Park won six times on the Korean LPGA Tour last year, and four times the year before that.

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.

She said on www.lpga.com: 'In-gee just played great and I knew she would and I knew it was going to be hard. Since winning the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in June of 2014, she had gone 82 starts without a win.

Lewis led by three shots overnight, and she made the flawless start with birdies at the first two holes before responding to a bogey at the fourth with further gains at six and seven which hoisted her to 20 under par. She stayed in close contact with Chadwell, who was back at their home. A shot further back at 13-under through three rounds is In Gee Chun, who shot a 3-under-par 69 on Saturday.

Lewis calls Columbia-Edgewater "one of my favorite courses we actually play all year", and her recent results back it up.

Golf fans rallied behind her, cheering Lewis' run at the $195,000 first-place check. She also broke through in Portland after finishing second twice - two strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and four shots behind Brooke Henderson past year. She hit a good lag putt and when the three-footer that was left went in, Lewis had won and the money was going to Houston. "It's nice to see yourself do that again". I knew it was going to be hard.

Moriya equaled the fast start by Lewis, also posting birdies on five of the first eight holes in her round of 66.

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