Cristie Kerr watches her tee shot from the 2nd hole during the closing day of the LPGA Lorena Ochoa Invitational at Country Club Guadalajara.

Cristie Kerr had the Rolex Rankings Move of the Week moving up four spots to No. 11. Kerr fired a final-round 3-under 69 and overcame a two stroke deficit to win this year’s Lorena Ochoa Invitational Presented by Banamex and Jalisco.

“It feels amazing,” said Kerr. “You know, coming in those last couple of holes it didn’t feel like I had won before. I kind of just squeaked in. I won by a shot, that’s all that it takes, I’ve lost plenty of tournaments by a shot, but winning by a shot feels a lot better.”

Kerr entered today’s final round two-strokes behind second round leader Angela Stanford but carded six birdies and three bogeys to secure her first LPGA Tour victory in two years. The Floridian fired rounds of 67-69-67-69 to take home her 15th win on the LPGA.
