As noted earlier, it's a fairly weak field with only two top 10 players entered, Nelly and Brooke. With a purse of only $1.5 million, it's no surprise that many players are skipping it this week. 'Pity for such a long running tournament.

 

That said, it's an opportunity again for a first time winner, and players near the CME points cutoff to shore up their status for next season.

Newest To Oldest: LPGA Transitions To AmazingCre Portland Classic

12 Sep 2022

 


rogers_amy_476x480.jpg?h=58&la=en&w=58&h
Written By: Amy Rogers @TheAmyRogers

Amy Rogers is an award winning multimedia journalist and freelance writer who has covered professional golf since 2007. She is a contributor to LPGA.com in addition to the Golf Channel and BBC's coverage of the LPGA Tour.



Each event on the LPGA Tour schedule holds its own unique place in the league’s more than 70-year history. Sunday, the newest addition to the schedule wrapped up in Ohio with the first edition of the Kroger Queen City Championship presented by P&G. Ally Ewing made history as the event’s inaugural champion. The victory marks the third win in as many years for the 29-year-old, who surprised herself with her return to the winner’s circle given the challenges she faced throughout the year with a balky putter that kept her outside the top 10 all season long.

 

“It's been really tough for me mentally just knowing that I've been hitting it so great. Seeing that stuff everywhere, seeing the stats, knowing I'm not hitting putts like I want to. It's just being kind of the thing holding me back,” Ewing said about her struggles this year. “Obviously, here, you know, just had it working and it was a lot of fun to finally put it all together.”

 

Players now shift their focus from the Tour’s newest stop to one of its oldest as they make the cross-country journey to Oregon for the AmazingCre Portland Classic, the longest-running, non-major on the LPGA Tour.

 

The tournament has been a fixture on the Tour’s schedule since 1972 and Thursday makes its return to its long-established home at Columbia Edgewater Country Club after a year away at Oregon Golf Club.

In what is the Tour’s lone stop in the Pacific Northwest, Columbia Edgewater has hosted the tournament for the better part of three decades. Built back in 1925, the course is one of the most unique and picturesque stops on Tour with a traditional Pacific Northwest style layout which features towering pines and more than four dozen bunkers that challenge players throughout.

 

The players who have hoisted the trophy in Portland include a who’s who of women’s golf. Kathy Whitworth won the inaugural tournament in what was the first of back-to-back titles and in the years that followed was joined by the likes of JoAnne Carner, Nancy Lopez, Annika Sorenstam, and Suzann Pettersen as multiple winners of the historic event.

 

More than a dozen major champions make up the field for the 51st playing of the AmazingCre Portland Classic, which features a tournament record $1.5 million purse. Nelly Korda, winner of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, is making her tournament debut as the top-ranked player in the field. Major winners Patty Tavatanakit, So Yeon Ryu, A Lim Kim, Angela Stanford, Na Yeon Choi, Sung Hyun Park, Pernilla Lindberg, Hinako Shibuno, and Mo Martin will also compete in Oregon.

 

Two-time winner Brooke Henderson, who earned her breakthrough win on the LPGA Tour in Portland in 2015, a title she successfully defended, is also in the field. She’s joined by past champions Georgia Hall (2020), Hannah Green (2019), and Marina Alex (2018).

 

Beginning once more on Thursday in Portland, the best in the game will seek to etch their name beside the game’s greats who have won there. That rich history has come to define the tournament and earned it a unique place not just on the schedule but in players’ hearts for more than 50 years. And with it, a special place in the history of the LPGA Tour.

@Whoa Nelly

 

We're finally back to Columbia Edgewater after an one year detour to Oregon Club!  This is where Yealimi Noh, before 2021 Amundi Evian, announced her arrival as an 18 years old in 2019.  She led by three going into the final round before being toppled by Hannah Green.  She followed it by a solo 3rd in 2020.

 

I'm, as surprised as some other people, that Yealimi hasn't won since.  But golf is fair in the long run; in order to win, she needs to be better than she has been.

Players, who're secure with their CME standing, are dropping out from tournaments like flies.  Not just here, but also at the $2.3 million purse in NW Arkansas.

 

It's a clear sign that the even though the total purse pales in comparison with PGA Tour, it's plenty enough for the Top 30-40 players.  Ally Ewing, #40 in official money, has earned $546,671 thus far.

Will be interesting to see how many of the Euro golfers playing on the LPGAT elect to play in the Women's Irish Open up against the Arkansas event.

 

There is at least one doing that....no prizes for guessing who?

Do they still do the double cut in Arkansas, I don't remember if they stopped doing it.  Some players might say a Saturday cut too, no thanks. lol

I’m curious how much politics are involved in the attendance of this tournament? I read comments from players a year or two ago about Portland and riots and yada yada yada. Add in the smoke from a couple years ago and moving it last year because of the urban campers (that’s what they call the homeless now) and I imagine the tournament has taken a hit. Especially among some of the established golfers who have said previously that they loved this tourney because of the restaurants, vineyards and shopping (Adidas and Nike employee stores).  
 

Keep an eye on Chloe Kovelesky, I guess she’s a 15 yr old and can play. We have an amateur qualifier at my course for this tourney and she shot the lowest score in the qualifiers history (-5, it’s just a one round event). The qualifier is why I will always dislike Lucy Li, she got beat by 5 strokes one year and kept complaining about how slow the greens were and how it effected (affected?) her score. The greens were between a 10 and 11 for a public course that gets 400 rounds a summer day we can’t push them much more than that. Also Makensie Toole and Ellie Slama. Makensie won the DIII title last year, she’s a 20 yr old from Australia.

In a 54 hole event? They didn't do it last year. Only cut was after 36 holes. Are you saying in past evets they had an 18 hole cut? Then a 36 hole cut?

Yealimi Noh will have Graeme Edwards as her caddie this week.  Graeme was the local caddie that helped her to a T17 finish at CP Women's Open in Ottawa; Yealimi had missed three consecutive cuts using local caddies before that.

 

I thought Patrick Smith did a good job last week, especially her final round of -5 with no bogeys.  But it's apparent that Patrick was a fill-in before Graeme got his visa to enter the US.

 

Good luck to the team!

I don't have a good feel for this one, but since I've called the winner for the last 2, I owe a prediction.

 

Brooke likes this course a lot and would be the obvious favorite.

 

Maddie Castren is marvelous on Poa Annua and in the NW conditions, but given her play this year, she would be my dark horse.

 

Marina Alex would be my outside pick this week.  She plays well on the left coast and this course plays short which brings some of the accuracy players back into the mix.

Brooke should do fine but I think she's just fighting the ebbs and flows of the game right now.  In Canada the putter disappeared, the next the driver was flawed and this week she was really off with her iron and wedge play by her standards.  Nothing super serious just been a little off and having her handful shots to make up come Sunday.  Then again like you mentioned she likes this place and that could put the game back into sync.

 

I'm gonna go with Hannah Green who likes this course also, she's just gotta get rid of her one bad round per week.

It was a 72 hole most years, they had the cut 36 and then another 54, it was a very stupid gimmick IMO.  I remember many years ago, Brooke missed the 54 cut and I don't think she's been back since, so maybe they got rid of it.
