To add further to the "feel good" moment was that Lewis's husband, Gerrod, had, unknown to Lewis, flown in from Houston to be with her in what had been a demanding week where she had led over the final 54 holes.

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

Ai Miyazato also was 8 under after a 72 in her final start in the United States. The 2010 Portland victor plans to retire after The Evian Championship in two weeks in France. Everybody talks about it.

Lewis, of Toledo, Ohio, carded eight birdies and no bogeys in her round, which she considered one of her best of the year. It was one that I just felt like I could make a lot of birdies.

First place pays US$195,000 and second pays US$120,000. She got up-and-down from off the green on the par-4 17th and reached the green on the par-4 18th from a fairway bunker to set up her winning two-putt. You have to hit a little fade or a little draw.

"It was probably one of the easiest rounds of the year, to be honest", Lewis said.

Monday night was a special night for me. "So I came pretty confident". "I have great respect for her", Sevastova said. She finished with 42 winners but 51 unforced errors against Sevastova, who also made the quarter-finals in 2016.

Things didn't get much better for the remainder of the day, as the 19-year-old (she turns 20 on September 10) from Smiths Falls birdied the par-3 eighth and 13th holes, but gave those strokes back with a double bogey on the par-4 ninth. She parred every hole on the back nine. "I haven't anxious about anything and just played really solid".

"I was feeling great", Moriya said. Felt a little exhausted this week, so just trying to build on the momentum of this week. "I just want to stay positive and just think about what we're doing good and just keep working on it".

"I will be playing this week at the Portland Classic and will donate 100 percent of my earnings to Houston and the victims of Hurricane Harvey", Lewis said in her note.

Lewis rebounded from a bogey at the par-3 16th with a 5-foot birdie putt at the hard par-4 17th. Prior to the tournament, she pledged to donate all of her winnings this week to relief efforts. "Always learn something new every time when we play in the final group".

Chun has four runner-up finishes in 2017 but hasn't yet cracked the winner's circle.

A South Korean player had won each of the past five LPGA tournaments, dating back to Park Sung-hyun's victory at the U.S. Women's Open on July 16.
