Georgia Hall recovers to win LPGA’s Portland title

After a bogey on the final hole in regulation creates a playoff, the Englishwoman edges Ashleigh Buhai on the 2nd extra hole to win the Cambia Portland Classic

2: Number of extra holes that England’s Georgia Hall needed to defeat South Africa’s Ashleigh Buhai to win the LPGA’s Cambia Portland Classic on Sunday in Portland, Ore. They had tied at 12-under 204 through 54 holes at Columbia Edgewater Country Club after a two-stroke swing on the par-4 final hole, where Hall made bogey and Buhai made birdie, her fourth in the final five holes. Buhai closed with a 7-under 65, and Hall shot 4-under 68 before Hall prevailed with a second consecutive par on No. 18. England's Mel Reid, who led after 36 holes, struggled to a 2-over 74 and fell into a tie for fifth. It was the second LPGA victory for Hall, 24, who also won the 2018 Women’s British Open. The Portland event was shortened to three days and 54 holes when Thursday’s schedule play was canceled because of the bad air caused by wildfires in the Pacific Northwest (scores).
