In Gee Chun leads at Cambia Portland Classic

In Gee Chun had seven birdies and a single bogey in her first round of the Cambria Portland Classic

Even before the event began, Lewis announced that she would donate her entire cheque this week to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Houston, where her husband is the women's golf coach at the University of Houston. She had a hole-in-one Wednesday in the pro-am playing alongside Nancy Lopez, the only three-time victor in event history. Also making her first start in the event, the second-ranked Thompson eagled the par-5 fifth to reach 4 under and was 5 under after a birdie on the par-4 11th, but dropped back with the double-bogey after driving to right on the par-4 17th.

Lewis goes into Sunday's finale three shots ahead of Moriya Jutanugarn, who fired a 6-under-par 66 in the third round.

Lewis has a two-round total of 10-under 134, which leaves her in a tie with first-round leader In Gee Chun of Korea, who shot a 4-under 68 on Friday, and 19-year-old Canadian Brooke Henderson, who shot a 67.

"I've been extremely calm". "I was hitting a lot of good shots, a lot of good putts ... they just weren't going on".

"I am more appreciative". "I made a lot of birdies and an eagle which was awesome". "It was a really tough shot and to see it go in just made me really happy and it changed my day".

I've admired the way Lewis has persevered through the 83 starts since that Arkansas win. Notes: Park joined I.K. Kim and So Yeon Ryu as the only multiple winners on the LPGA Tour this year, and she moved atop the money list for the first time this year. She had a couple bogeys but that didn't stop her from finishing at 10-under alongside Stacy Lewis. Chun was another stroke back after a 69. I'm just going to make my swing. "I have been hitting solid and (gave) myself a lot of really good chances for birdie".

"Definitely had the momentum (this week) and hopefully it'll carry over the next two weeks", she said. Lexi Thompson is playing the Portland Classic for the first time.

Jutanugarn said she has "pretty good" momentum heading into the next stretch of tournaments on the LPGA Tour schedule, which includes the final major of the year. Last week: Sung Hyun Park won the Canadian Pacific Women's Open. Lewis admitted with a smile that she was glad she didn't have to play any more holes up against Chun, who was 'making everything, ' according to Lewis, the eventual victor. "Stacy's play was good, too".

"I'm enjoying my game", Miyazato said.

First place pays US$195,000 and second pays US$120,000.

"I made another bogey-free round".
