Cristie Kerr recorded her second LPGA career victory on Saturday by beating rookie Seol-An Jeon on the seventh hole of a cold and windy playoff at the Takefuji Classic. Having given away a four stroke lead by making bogey on each of the last four holes of regulation play Kerr put her Solheim Cup match play experience to good use and kept her cool during sudden death. The first six playoff holes were shared in par with both players missing chances for an earlier victory but finally Jeon hit into trouble on the 7th (played on the 16th hole of the Las Vegas course) and Kerr took the title.
