Cambia Portland Classic Preview

After taking a week off the LPGA Tour is back in action this week, as they get ready to head to Portland, Oregon. The Cambia Portland Classic will be played August 13th thru 16th and will be held at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club.

During last year’s edition Austin Ernest managed to grab her first career victory in Oregon after winning on the first playoff hole against I.K. Kim. Ernst had a great week at the Columbia Edgewater course and turned in scores in the 60’s all four days.

The Cambia Portland Classic and the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open will be the last two events counting for Lizette Salas, Paula Creamer and Brittany Lang to deliver good numbers if they want to make the U.S. team.

The field for this week will feature 95 of the Top 100 Money List players. Lydia Ko will be making her debut at the Cambia Portland Classic this week and is considered among the favorites. Seven past champions including Ernst, Suzann Pettersen, Mika Miyazato, Ai Miyazato, Mi Jung Hur, Cristie Kerr and Pat Hurst will also be part of the field in Portland.
