Kerr wins Lorena Ochoa Invitational

Associated Press  |  Last updated November 11, 2012
Cristie Kerr won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational on Sunday for her first LPGA Tour victory in more than two years, and Stacy Lewis tied for fourth to wrap up the player of the year award. Kerr parred the final three holes at Guadalajara Country Club to hold off Angela Stanford and third-round leader Inbee Park by a stroke. Kerr finished at 16-under-par 272 for her 15th LPGA Tour title and first since the LPGA Championship in June 2010. Stanford shot 68, and Park had a 72. The second-ranked Lewis, coming off her tour-leading fourth victory of the year last week in Japan, is the first American player of the year since Beth Daniel in 1994. Lewis closed with a 68 to match Candie Kung at 4 under. Kung also shot 68. Suzann Pettersen finished with a 69 to tie 12th at 7 under. She won in South Korea and Taiwan in her previous two starts. Michelle Wie tied for 14th at 6 under after a 74. Ochoa finished with a 71 to tie for 19th at 4 under. The Mexican star won 27 LPGA Tour titles before retiring from full-time play at age 28 in 2010. Top-ranked Yani Tseng tied for 26th in the 36-player, closing with a 72 to finish at 1 over.
