Kerr takes lead on record round
By TIMES WIRES
Published September 10, 2006
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Cristie Kerr shot a career-best 10-under 61 on Saturday in the second round of the John Q. Hammons Hotel Classic, the top single-round score on the LPGA Tour this year.
Kerr's course-record, bogey-free 61 at Cedar Ridge Country Club in suburban Tulsa helped her to 11-under 131, good for a one-stroke lead over Annika Sorenstam, the only LPGA player to break 60 in a round. Sorenstam shot 59 at Moon Valley Country Club in Phoenix in the second round of the 2001 Standard Register PING.
Kerr's previous best was 9-under 62, which she shot last year in the first round of the Longs Drugs Challenge at The Ridge Golf Club in Auburn, Calif.
Kerr started Saturday's round at 1 under, six shots behind Sorenstam, but she shot 6-under 30 on the front nine and needed only 13 holes to surge ahead. After hitting a slightly uphill 35-foot birdie putt on No. 13, she waved her arm as if she was carrying a lasso as she approached the hole to retrieve her ball.
"When you're shooting a low round you just know everything is going to go in," Kerr said.
Clearwater's Jennifer Gleason and Kelly Lagedrost of Brooksville both missed the cut. Gleason shot 1-under 70 to finish at 5-over 147. Lagedrost was one stroke behind Gleason after shooting 3-over 74. Beth Bauer of Tampa withdrew before the start of the round.
PGA TOUR: Justin Rose topped the crowded third-round leaderboard in the Canadian Open, shooting 5-under 65 in ideal scoring conditions on the rain-softened Hamilton Golf and Country Club course in Ancaster, Ontario.
The start of play was delayed 2 hours, 5 minutes because of morning rain that further softened the already soggy greens on the 90-year-old course. Rain briefly fell again just after the last group started play on the cool day.
Rose was at 11-under 199, a stroke ahead of Bart Bryant (64), Trevor Immelman (66), Sean O'Hair (66) and Jonathan Byrd (67).
ASIAN TOUR: Ernie Els overcame a bout of food poisoning to shoot 2-under 69 to share a three-stroke lead with defending Singapore Open champion Adam Scott after three rounds.
Els made four birdies and two bogeys to stand at 8-under 205. Lightning disrupted play for two hours.
"I don't like breaks too often but today it really saved me," said Els, who was suffering from food poisoning after a meal the night before. "I don't feel too great. The doctor actually gave me an injection. It really helped me a lot."
Scott shot a mistake-free 5-under 66 that included five birdies.
EUROPEAN PGA: Bradley Dredge shot 6-under 65 for a two-stroke lead after three rounds at the European Masters in Crans-sur-Sierre, Switzerland. Dredge, at 13-under 200, made birdie and eagle on the two par-5s on the back nine. He leads Marcel Siem (67) by two shots and Oliver Wilson (67) by four.
NATIONWIDE TOUR: Bryce Molder extended his lead during the third round of the Utah Energy Solutions Championship in Sandy, Utah, where inclement weather suspended play. After 15 holes, Molder was 3 under, four strokes ahead of Craig Kanada, who finished his round at 7-under 65 for an overall 15-under 201.
FUTURES: Ji Min Jeong shot 3-under 68 for a one-stroke lead at 8-under 134 in the second round of the ILOVENY Championship in Albany. Tampa's Elizabeth Stuart, who shot 1-under 70, is tied for 13th at 1-under 141.
ST. PETE CUP: Mangrove Bay scored 7.5 points in singles matches in the final round against host St. Petersburg Country Club for a total of 19 to win the cup. St. Petersburg Country Club won eight matches and tied one for 8.5 points and a total of 13.
