Kerr wins in playoff in Williamsburg

Updated: May 5, 2013


Cristie Kerr parred the second playoff
hole on Sunday to top Suzann Pettersen and win the Kingsmill Championship for
the third time.

Kerr carded a 2-under 69 during her final round at Kingsmill Resort & Spa to
finish the tournament at 12-under-par 272. Pettersen shot a 4-under 67 in the
final round to meet her there.

The two played the 18th hole for both playoffs and after Kerr missed a 5-
foot birdie putt on the first playoff to force the second extra hole, Kerr hit
her second shot to about 20 feet from the pin on the right of the green.

Pettersen’s second shot rolled off the back of the green and her third shot
stopped well short of the hole.

Kerr then had her lengthy putt stop a couple feet short of the hole, but she
was able to tap in for her 16th career LPGA Tour title when Pettersen missed
her 15-foot par attempt.

It was Pettersen’s only bogey of the day.

Ariya Jutanugarn, who held the lead at the end of the first and second rounds,
tied the low round of the day with a 5-under 66 to grab a share of third place
with Ilhee Lee (67) at 10-under 274.

Angela Stanford (69) and Stacy Lewis (70) tied for fifth at minus-9.
