Stacy Lewis, KPMG, Marathon Oil: Lanny Has a Complaint

If you don’t already know the story, here is what USA Today wrote:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Stacy Lewis won for Houston.

Lewis ended a long winless streak Sunday at the Cambia Portland Classic, with her $195,000 in winnings going to the relief efforts in her hometown area. Her two biggest sponsors also stepped up, with KPMG matching her donation and Marathon Oil kicking in $1 million.

Stacy Lewis has been my favorite American LPGA player for quite some time, and now she’s my favorite LPGA player, period.  What a classy move, and how cool is it that she came through with a win?  Good stuff.

But here’s what I’m writing about…

I first heard this story on the radio, reported just like USA Today summarized it above, and my immediate thought was: Marathon Oil should have matched the 195K, not gone for a million.  So as to not undercut Stacy.

Now, Marathon is based in Houston, so it is understandable if they are not thinking clearly right now, and donations are donations, but still I feel it would have been better for them to publicly match Stacy, then donate the other 805K in a different manner.
