Cristie Kerr Defends at LPGA State Farm Classic

CRISTIE KERR WILL DEFEND the first of two consecutive titles this week when she tees off at Panther Creek Country Club on Thursday in the $1.7 million LPGA State Farm Classic. Last year Kerr scorched the Springfield, Illinois, course with a 22-under winning total. It included a 63 in the third round. She followed that performance with a record-setting 12-stroke victory at the Wegmans LPGA Championship (a major), which will be played in Pittsford, New York, in two weeks.

Kerr has posted two consecutive runner-up finishes and has five top-10 finishes in eight events this season. She is No. 4 in the Rolex Rankings.
