Stacy Lewis in position to make big hurricane donation

Classy LPGA Tour player donates entire winner's check to hometown Houston

United States golfing star Stacy Lewis said watching the resolve of the victims of a tropical storm in her hometown of Houston, Texas, has spurred her to help out.

Prior to Sunday's action, Lewis said that this would probably one of her most special wins - "up there" with a major, in fact - if she could pull it off. "I kind of put all the eyeballs on me and put some pressure on myself, so it's nice to kind of see myself performing, too".

She moved to Houston as a youngster and her husband is the women's golf coach at the University of Houston.

If she can hold on to her lead on the final day she would collect the winner's cheque of US$195,000 (S$264,750).

Lewis had four birdies and a bogey over the first seven holes, then made all pars the rest of the way. Chun was another stroke back after a 69.

'I was hitting a lot of good shots, hitting a lot of good putts, and they just weren't going in. If she finishes second she would earn US$120,000. You have to hit a little fade or a little draw. "Everybody talks about it", said Lewis.

"You know, when I said that I had the goal of winning the tournament-you got to get a lot of things right, to go your way", Lewis said standing off the 18th green.

"Felt like any hole I could make birdie on".

For the first time in more than three years, former World No. 1 Stacy Lewis has won an LPGA event.

"I think just keep everything the same".

"I was feeling great", said Jutanugarn. It wound up in the back rough.

The LPGA tournament victory snaps a three-year drought for Lewis, who hasn't claimed a LPGA tournament victory since 2014. But gave a shot each on 13th, 16th and 17th.

Despite the popularity of the Korean, the emotion surrounding Lewis' offer was tangible as she holed a three-footer for par at the last and the victory.
