Kerr projected to regain the Rolex Rankings No. 1 position

Cristie Kerr is projected to regain the Rolex Rankings No. 1 position on the heels of her strong play Sunday at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia. Kerr began the final round tied for 29th and teed off on the 10th hole, registering four birdies in her first six holes of the day to mount a comeback charge. She added a bogey at 18 - her ninth hole - and birdies at three and four to finish the day at 5-under-par 66. "It would feel great to take over No. 1 this week," said Kerr. "It's been so close the last four tournaments. It came down to one putt in Alabama and last week I had a great finish, but just wasn't close enough. I've been thinking about this race all year. It's coming down to a putt here or there and it cannot get any closer." Kerr returns to the spot she has held for four previous week's this season, three of which followed her 12-shot victory at the LPGA Championship Presented by Wegmans in June. Jiyai Shin is projected to take the No. 2 spot in the Rolex Rankings, while Ai Miyazato is projected to fall to No. 3.
