Australian wins LPGA Tour’s Cambia Classic

Updated: October 2, 2019

Hannah Green of Australia rolled in a par putt on the final hole to win the Portland Cambia LPGA Classic at Columbia Edgewater. She won the tournament by one stroke over American and Monday qualifier Yealimi Noh. Green collected a first-place check of $195,000 for winning the tournament, which is the longest-running event on the LPGA Tour and just had its 48th edition.

There was some Pacific Northwest flavor included in the event as amateur Ellie Slama, a junior at Oregon State University, made the cut and finished tied for 57th at 3-under par. Slama is from Salem. Last year’s champion Marina Alex of the United States finished tied for seventh while two-time champion Brooke Henderson of Canada wound up in a tie for fourth place.
