With a final-round 65, Marina Alex erased a six-stroke deficit and captured her first LPGA victory at the 2018 Cambia Portland Classic at Columbia Edgewater Country Club. The 28-year-old New Jersey native carded eight birdies on Sunday, and despite a closing bogey, finished four strokes clear of 54-hole leader Georgia Hall, who stumbled to a 3-over 75.

Hole Description

Hole01
A slight dogleg right gives long players an advantage if their tee shot is placed correctly in the left center of the fairway. The approach is to an elevated green with a false front that defends well against shots that come up short. Pro Tip: If you want to see what jail is like, hit it in the trees to the right of first fairway.
Hole02
Pin placement on this hole can force players to be very tentative with their strategy. A slightly elevated and very narrow green features a bunker on each side of the green and a very narrow middle section that divides the front and back of the green. The left bunker is the deepest on the course, making an improbable up and down par. Pro Tip: I would much rather be long than short on #2, taking the bunkers out of play and having a relatively easy chance of up and down if I miss the green.
Hole03
The large maple to the left of this fairway beautifully frames the tee shot to this medium long par 4, as does a well placed fairway bunker on the right. Generally a longer iron shot is what it takes most players to reach this well guarded green, with two bunkers left and a very penal short right bunker. Pro Tip: Aim for the left center of this fairway, as right rough leaves little room for recovery.
Hole04
This is a classic par 4, with a large oak tree as a great aiming point off the tee. Stay just inside of the fairway bunker for a clear shot into the green, which has a Macan signature mound at the front right. A par 4 here is not a bad score, but a birdie is not impossible if played correctly. Pro Tip: This is my favorite hole on the course, but it is always more enjoyable to play from the fairway, whatever the distance to the green.
Hole05
A great risk-reward par 5, this Lake style hole features a large pond that guards the left corner of the fairway. From the back tees, the lake is a tough carry for anyone, yet accuracy off the tee will be awarded with a chance to be aggressive if you dare. The second half of the hole may be innocuous, but birdies here are made by properly reading the subtle breaks of the green. Pro Tip: Either challenge the lake and try to get home under regulation, or play it as a 3 shot hole, laying back from the fore bunker to the left for a short wedge home.
Hole06
An elevated tee shot allows players extra yardage which is needed due to a tough second shot. This hole presents a very small green that is heavily bunkered short left and right. Shots missing this green present a huge challenge to get up and down. Pro Tip: Watch out for that OB line, which is very close to the left of the fairway bunkers.
Hole07
The 7th at Columbia has long been admired as one of the toughest holes of golf in the Northwest. Out of bounds is lurking along the entire left side of this hole and also behind this very undulating green. Tee shots that find the fairway will still be tested with long to medium irons off uneven lies. Good luck, you’re going to need it to make par! Pro Tip: Try playing a running shot that lands 40 yards short of the green and may just catch a downslope and run right up on the green.
Hole08
This shortest par 3 is no easy task to birdie. The large lake to the right attracts its fair share of tee shots. Trying to avoid the bunker to the short right will steer shots over the green, making a tough up and down to a green that slopes towards the water. Pro Tip: Take the guesswork out of your mind before you swing: aim for the middle of the green and take your chance at birdie from there.
Hole09
Out of Bounds along the entire left side of the hole along with a fairway bunker to the right challenge every tee shot on this lengthy par 4. The green complex features a collection area left along with two bunkers. Out of bounds lurks behind the green, which slopes from back to front. With presses and matches on the line, this green is not for the feint of heart. Pro Tip: Tee shots that are right of center may just kick into that fairway bunker, watch your line!
