Defending champion returned to Locust Hill Country Club on Monday for Wegmans LPGA Championship media day. On the heels of her runner-up finish the day before at the Sybase Match Play Championship, Kerr met with the media and filmed promotional messages for the tournament. In conjunction with the Graduation is the Goal charity effort that the tournament leads, Kerr also met with children from Rochester schools to provide golf lessons and life advice.
“I would like to defend my title (at the Wegmans LPGA Championship),” said Kerr, who won by a record 12 shots last year in Rochester. “I’m going to try to follow up what I did last year, but not put too much pressure on myself.”
The Wegmans LPGA Championship marks the 35th year of the LPGA at Locust Hill Country Club. On Monday, the tournament also unveiled plans for the Verizon Phone Zone, which allows fans to bring their cellular phones to the golf course for use in designated locations.
