"It would be probably one of my most special wins, just to be able to do this for the people in Texas and to do it too when everybody is watching", Lewis told reporters.

Her husband, Gerrod Chadwell, is the women's golf coach at the University of Houston.

Though the win was all about helping others, Lewis also heaved a sigh of relief for getting "the monkey off my back" and knowing she could "hit the shots when I need to and hit the putts when I need to". She hit a good lag putt and when the three-footer that was left went in, Lewis had won and the money was going to Houston. To make that up-and-down on 17 and then to hit that shot out of the bunker on 18, it's something you dream about'. "Everybody talks about it", Lewis said.

"When I said that I had the goal of winning the tournament, you've got to get a lot of things right, to go your way", Lewis said. She bounced back immediately, however, with a birdie on the very next hole.

"I think just keep everything the same".

"I want to finish in the top five", Hataoka said.

Lewis is looking for her first win on the LPGA Tour since 2014.

Lewis rebounded from a bogey at the par-3 16th with a 5-foot birdie putt at the hard par-4 17th.
