As we reported on Saturday, Stacy Lewis will give all her winnings at the Cambia Portland Open to charity, and specifically the victims of Hurricane Harvey. So, how is she getting on?
Well, rather well indeed as you ask. She was joint leader with Brooke Henderson and In Gee Chun after day two, but has now taken a three shot lead on moving day and is on 17 under. Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn is her closest rival, followed by South Korea's In Gee Chun, who is a further shot back on 13 under.
Stacy shot a 65, which included eight birdies, and just a single dopped shot. That's the second day in a row that she has gone low, as she shot a 64 on Friday, with eight birdies and not a single dropped shot.
This girl is on fire! If she can keep this form going, then she is set to win $195,000 for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Meanwhile Sergio Garcia will be donating $2,000 for every birdie he makes at the Dell and $5,000 for an eagle. There were no eagles in his first two rounds, but he did make six birdies on day one, and a rather disappointing single birdie on day two. Still that's $14,000 in the pot already.
But, fingers crossed, Stacy can completely eclipse that if she can get past the post today.
