Kerr hungry to end winless stretch

By Neal Reid

For elite players like Cristie Kerr, simply being good isn’t enough.

She’s won 14 times on the LPGA Tour – including two majors – has been the No. 1-ranked player in the world, played in six Solheim Cups and, in 2011, passed Juli Inkster as the top American money-winner in LPGA history with nearly $14 million in earnings. She has established herself as one of the top players on Tour and currently ranks fifth in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

But Cristie Kerr wants more.

By most players’ standards, Kerr’s 2011 season was a consummate success: 12 top-10s, including three runner-up finishes and three thirds, and a No. 2 finish on the season’s money list with $1,470,979 in the bank. But for Kerr, it was a season that was more about what could have been.

Now more than a year without a victory – her last coming 45 tournaments ago at the 2010 LPGA Championship Presented by Wegmans – Kerr is as focused and determined as ever. More>>
