Kerr wins again at Kingsmill in playoff
WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Cristie Kerr made a short par putt on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff with Suzann Pettersen on Sunday to win the Kingsmill Championship for the third time.
The victory was the 16th of Kerr’s career, and her third in five career playoffs.
Kerr shot a 2-under 69, and Pettersen had a 67 to finish at 12-under 272 on the River Course.
Kerr nearly won on the first extra hole. Her approach to No. 18 stopped about 6 feet away, while Pettersen’s approach came up short of the green. But Pettersen chipped close, and Kerr’s putt slid past.
On the second hole, Pettersen’s approach went over the green, and her chip came up well short. Kerr was nearly pin high in two and two-putted for the victory.
