Cristie Kerr rallied to win the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday as
Stacy Lewis locked up LPGA Player of the Year honors with a tie for fourth place.Kerr had six birdies and three bogeys and parred the last three holes at Guadalajara Country Club to hold off fellow American Angela Stanford and overnight leader Inbee Park and win byone stroke.
Kerr’s 69 gave her a fourround total of 16-under 272. Stanford carded a 68 and South Korea’s Park a 72 for 273.Kerr claimed her 15th LPGA title and her first since she won the LPGA Championship in June
2010.
“It feels amazing,” said Kerr, who admitted to late-round nerves.“You know, coming in those last couple of holes it didn’t feel like I had won before. I kind of just squeaked in. Iwon by a shot, that’s all that it takes, I’ve lost plenty of tournaments by a shot, but winning by a shot feels a lot better.” Lewis, the world No 2 who was coming off her tour-leading fourth victory of the year in Japan lastweek, closedwith a 68 for 276, tied with Taiwan’s Candie Kung, who also carded a 68. The finish makes Lewis the first US golfer to win the pointsbased Player of the Year awardsince Beth Daniel in 1994.—
