It was another fight to the finish in Williamsburg, Va. at the Kingsmill Championship, as Cristie Kerr outlasted Suzann Pettersen in a two-hole sudden-death playoff for her 16th career victory. Kerr sank a two-foot par putt on the 18th to clinch the win and to break into the winner s circle for the third time at Kingsmill. Kerr, who shot a 2-under 69 in the final round, said she grinded out in regulation and felt lucky to even be in contention. I&aposm just so thrilled. Honestly, the way I hit it today to even have a chance to win, said Kerr. I just made so many putts out there to save par and kind of save any momentum, and I started hitting it a little bit better late in the round just in time to make a — catch up a couple shots. Yeah, really hard fought, really hard fought. I&aposm very happy.
