Pushing for major win No. 3: Rolex Rankings No. 2 Cristie Kerr entered Sunday afternoon's final round at the U.S. Women's Open in a three-way tie for the lead with Ryu and Angela Stanford at 1-under-par. After going even-par through her first 16 holes, Kerr now sits two strokes back of the lead with two holes remaining in her round. And she seemed focused on the goal in front of her on Monday, which is to try and force a playoff with Seo.
"I have two holes left," Kerr said. "The tournament is not decided yet. I think she's over there celebrating. We all have a chance. There are two accessible pins on 17 and 18. I'm playing great. I'm going to go out and swing for the fences and hopefully tie it up."
Kerr is searching for her second U.S. Women's Open title, having won the event back in 2007 at Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club. A 14-time winner on the LPGA Tour, Kerr has captured two major championships so far in her career: the 2007 U.S. Women's Open and the 2010 Wegmans LPGA Championship.
