Rolex Rankings No. 3 and 14-time LPGA Tour winner Cristie Kerr took time at the RICOH Women’s British Open to make a young girl’s wish come true. 10-year-old avid golfer Stephanie Ballay from Guernsey wrote a letter to the Round Table Children’s Wish with the request to meet her favorite professional golfer Cristie Kerr. The wish made its way into the hands of the LGU who contacted Kerr.
Joined by good friend and two-time winner Morgan Pressel, Kerr surprised Stephanie on the driving range at Royal Birkdale Golf Club. After presenting Stephanie with a Callaway bag and clubs, Kerr and Pressel spent time honing Stephanie’s swing. Stephanie, in turn, gave Kerr and Pressel a box of chocolates, which the LPGA stars planned to share for dessert on the eve of the year’s final Major championship.
The Round Table Children's Wish is a national charity that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Stephanie is being treated for leukemia.
