ShopRite LPGA Classic
Marriott Seaview Resort & Spa, Galloway Township, New Jersey 
June 18-20, 2004
Kerr wins 2nd Title of 2004
 

Cristie Kerr made a 9-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic by one shot over Giulia Sergas and  Paula Creamer. It came down to the final hole which Kerr birdied from 9 feet. Kerr's playing partner, 17-year-old amateur, Creamer and Sergas, in the final group behind them, both missed birdie chances which would have forced a playoff. This was Kerr's third win on the LPGA Tour and second this year having won the  Takefuji Classic in April.

Creamer, who was instrumental in the USA Team's recent Curtis Cup victory, finished just one shot away from being only the fifth amateur to win an LPGA tournament. She has another opportunity next week to become the youngest winner in the history of the Tour.
