Kerr to face Pettersen in Sybase Match Play final

GLADSTONE, N.J. (AP) — Cristie Kerr won the final two holes and posted a 1-up victory over Angela Stanford on Sunday to advance to the title match of the Sybase Match Play Championship against Suzann Pettersen of Norway.

The third-seeded Kerr rolled in a 5-foot birdie putt at No. 17 to square the match and won the final hole with a 3-foot par save after Stanford’s chip for par from 35 feet hit off the pin and bounced two feet away.

Kerr was 2-down with five holes to play and got within one with a birdie at No. 15 in the All-American semifinal.

Pettersen, the fifth seed, rolled in six birdies en route to a 4 and 2 win over top-seeded Na Yeon Choi of South Korea.
