Updated: September 4, 2018

Gigi Stoll (Tigard, Ore.) won the Portland Classic Amateur Open to earn an automatic berth into the 2018 LPGA Cambia Portland Classic, annually held at Columbia Edgewater Country Club in Portland, Ore.

Stoll fired a 5-under par 67 to best the field on Monday, as the Amateur Open was held at the Championship’s home course, Columbia Edgewater. The winner of the event earned a spot to compete against many of the top women’s golfers in the world at this year’s championship.

Stoll, a rising senior at the University of Arizona, also qualified for the Portland Classic in 2014 and 2015. Earlier this year, Stoll helped the Wildcats win an NCAA National Championship.

The three-time Oregon Women’s Amateur champion earned stoke play medalist honors at this year’s Oregon Amateur, eventually advancing to the quarterfinals during match play. Stoll recently competed in the Oregon Coast Invitational, making it to the semifinals.
