Stacy Lewis wins Portland Classic, gives earnings to hometown relief efforts

Lewis ended a long winless streak Sunday at Cambia Portland Classic, with her $195,000 in winnings going to the relief efforts in her hometown area.

The 32-year-old Lewis, from The Woodlands just north of Houston, won her 12th LPGA Tour title and first since June 2014, ending a frustrating stretch that included 12 runner-up finishes.

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

She didn’t know he had made the trip to Oregon until he appeared on the green – after hiding out in the Golf Channel tower during the round.

She also broke through in Portland after finishing second twice – two strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and four shots behind Brooke Henderson last year.
