What a great finish at Wendy’s: Kerr tops Sorenstam, Creamer

Pat Hurst, on the tee at 18 at -18 in the second-to-last group, missed big with the driver, which led to a deadly double. Paula Creamer, after almost making birdie on 16, made a brilliant 2 on 17 to get to -17, and her 50 foot downhill putt on the tough 18 lipped out to leave her tied with Annika Sorenstam (who had finished at -17 an hour earlier). Christie Kerr, after making a nervous 3-putt bogey on 15, managed to make pars on the three tough closing holes to pull out the victory at a wonderful LPGA event.

Consider that, with these results, Sorenstam, Creamer and Kerr are now 1-2-3 on the 2005 LPGA money list. So, to give you the PGA-equivalent vision of the drama, the finish was as if Tiger was the leader in the clubhouse watching to see if he had posted a score low enough to force a playoff with Vijay and Phil who were playing in the final group.

In future posts, I will have a lot of (quite critical) reflections on the LPGA Tour and ESPN’s coverage on TV today. But first I will give ESPN2 credit for going an extra 10 minutes over the alotted time to show Kerr make a strong par on 18 for the victory. And I am certain our TGB on-course reporting team will have a lot to add. So, if you are not already sick of LPGA talk, stop back again soon.
