The LPGA Tour has a 51-year-old legacy event called the Portland Classic. It is an annual event and is the oldest continuing LPGA event. The proceeds from this event are donated to children’s charity fund and over $19 million have been raised to date.

This year the event was won by Chanettee Wannasaen and the third position (rather tied third) was bagged by the Spanish LPGA golfer Carlota Ciganda who had her share at $81,297. The Spanish golfer was disqualified from the Evian Championship last month after she refused to add a two-shot penalty to her score for slow play during her second round.

The golfer in now headed back to Spain but before taking off she came in for a quick post-round press conference. She was asked various questions about her excellent finish at the event.

She was asked how she was feeling about her game and she responded optimistically pointing out how she had a great tournament and went as low as a 6-under par on the third day of the event.

She also mentioned that it’s important to recover before a big event and will be taking the next two weeks off. She will take enough rest to rejuvenate herself for the upcoming Solheim Cup in Spain. She ended by saying, “I’ll be in Spain at least a week or a few more days, and, yeah, I’ll be ready.”

Now since the slow play is behind Carlota Ciganda, it remains to be seen how she fares at her patriotic dream, at the Solheim Cup, which she has played in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021. With her onboard, the team has won thrice; this year’s results remain to be seen though!

After giving a tough battle to all other golfers, she now gears up for some rest ahead. The Evian championship did not end well.

This did set her back but she bounced back to a good form and a faster pace at the Portland Classic.
