Kerr fires 65 to capture 17th career LPGA title


CARLSBAD: Cristie Kerr fired a seven-under-par 65 Sunday to win her 17th career LPGA title, taking a two-stroke victory over South Korea’s Lee Mi-Rim at the Kia Classic. The 37-year-old American made nine birdies, including four in a row from the 13th through 16th holes, to finish 72 holes on a tournament-record 20-under-par 268 for her first LPGA victory since the Kingsmill Championship 22 months ago. Kerr took the $255,000 top prize some 43 starts after her prior LPGA triumph, overcoming a three-shot deficit to Kim with a sizzling round.
