Kerr surges to top of leaderboard, Webb 12th

Fifteen-time LPGA Tour winner Cristie Kerr made a serge up the leaderboard on Saturday to take a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the Kingsmill Championship. Kerr fired a 5-under 66 during Saturday s round with Rolex Rankings No. 5 Suzann Pettersen and No. 2 Stacy Lewis trailing by two strokes. Karrie Webb maintained her consistent form by posting 1-under (70) today to be tied 12th. Her round consist of 4 bogeys and 5 birdies. Kerr, who is a two-time winner at the River Course at Kingsmill Resort, found herself in a familiar position after Saturday s third round as she leads the field at 10-under par. She either led or co-led heading into the final round during each of her victories in 2005 and 2009, which gives her plenty of confidence heading into Sunday even though she has a strong group of players within striking distance. Off the other Australians, Julia Boland is T33, Sarah Kemp T47, Sarah Jane Smith and Lindsey Wright are both T51.
