Cristie Kerr wins LPGA Lotte Championship
April 15, 2017
Cristie Kerr won the LPGA Lotte Championship at Ko Olina in Kapolei, Hawaii, on Saturday for her 19th tour title, closing with a 6-under-par 66 for a three-stroke victory. Jason Dufner had two eagles on the way to a 6-under 65 and a one-shot lead heading into the final round of the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island, S.C. Dufner, the 2013 PGA Championship winner, started three shots behind co-leaders Graham DeLaet and Luke Donald, but he quickly closed that deficit with eagles on both front-nine par 5s at Nos. 2 and 5. Stephen Ames shot a 4-under 68 to take a one-stroke lead over five players into the final round of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic at Duluth, Ga. First-round leader Bob Tway followed his opening 65 with a 71 to drop into a tie for second with Kenny Perry (64), Billy Andrade (66), Brandt Jobe (68) and Kevin Sutherland (69).
