Kerr leads US LPGA to win in 3-Tour

CRISTIE Kerr shot 4-under 32 on the back nine to lead the US LPGA to win in the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge in Henderson, Nevada, on Tuesday.

It was the US LPGA's fifth win in the made-for-TV event that pits three-person teams from the US PGA Tour, Champions Tour and US LPGA.

The US PGA Tour leads with seven wins and the Champions Tour has six victories.

The US LPGA team of Kerr, Suzann Pettersen and Natalie Gulbis had a combined score of 6 under on the final nine holes to beat the men's team of Stewart Cink, Fred Couples and Bubba Watson by two strokes and win US$300,000.

Combined with their US$100,000 purse from the opening nine, the women won the overall title by US$70,000 over the men.

Meanwhile, Shin Ji-yai is on the verge of sweeping both the LPGA's rookie of the year and player of year awards.

The South Korean has already clinched rookie of the year and leads Lorena Ochoa by four points in the player of the year race going into the final two tournaments of the season - this week's Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Mexico, and the LPGA Tour Championship next week in Houston.
