Cristie Kerr wins LPGA Lotte Championship

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).
