Portland, OR - Stacy Lewis not only picked up her first LPGA Tour victory of the year at the Cambia Portland Classic, she also donated her winnings to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Lewis fired a 3-under par 69 on Sunday at the Cambia Portland Classic and finished at 20-under par for the tournament. This was the 12th win for Lewis on the LPGA Tour and her first of 2017.
Lewis has lived in the Houston area since age 11 and considers the city as her "hometown," and has been affected by the extensive damage that Hurricane Harvey has unleashed on Houston. Her winning share of the purse from the tournament - $195,000 - is being donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.
One of her sponsors Antigua, the golf apperal brand expressed their joy and admiration for Lewis.
The victory made Jones the first and only to win golf’s calendar “Grand Slam” – or “The Impregnable Quadrilateral,” a phrase coined by sports writer O.B. Keeler.
Lewis made a promise prior to the tournament in Portland to donate her winnings to her adopted hometown.
