Andrea Lee, statements

For Andrea Lee, 24, born in Los Angeles, this is the first success on the LPGA Tour.

Thanks to this exploit, the 1998 class cashed a check for $ 225,000 on a total prize pool of 1,500,000. Portland is the largest and most populous city in the state of Oregon and is the county seat of Multnomah County. It is a major port in the Willamette Valley region in the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers in northwestern Oregon.

In 2019, Portland had an estimated population of 654 741, making it the 26th most populous city in the United States, the sixth most populous on the West Coast and the second most populous in the Pacific Northwest after Seattle.

About 2.4 million people live in the Portland metropolitan statistical area, making it the 25th most populous in the United States. Its combined statistical area ranks 19th with a population of approximately 3.2 million. About 60% of Oregon's population resides in the Portland metropolitan area.

Named after the town of the same name in Maine, the settlement began to develop in the 1830s, towards the end of the Oregon Trail. Its access to water provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the early period of the city's economy.

In the early 20th century, the city had a reputation as one of the most dangerous port cities in the world, a center for organized crime and racketeering. After the city's economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II, its reputation began to improve.

Beginning in the 1960s, Portland became known for its growing progressive political values, earning a reputation as a bastion of the counterculture. The city operates with a commission-based government led by a mayor and four commissioners, as well as Metro, the only directly elected metropolitan planning organization in the United States.

The city government is known for its land use planning and investment in public transport. Portland is often recognized as one of the greenest cities in the world to live in, and Portland was the first city to enact a global plan to reduce CO2 emissions.

Its climate is characterized by hot, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. This climate is ideal for growing roses and Portland has been dubbed the "city of roses" for over a century.
