Cristie Kerr wins LPGA Lotte in Hawaii for 19th tour title

Cristie Kerr won the LPGA Lotte Championship on Saturday for her 19th tour title, closing with a 6-under 66 for a three-stroke victory.

Su-Yeon, who was invited to the tournament by the sponsors, said: "Because I had to finish up the second round this morning and play another 18 I was a little bit exhausted". Made a lot of good par saves, and (made) some good birdie putts to start the day. "That (first) day and a half that I had struggled a little with my swing feel it was an unbelievable run".

The former U.S. Women's Open victor believes she got some good luck from Mother Nature earlier in the week.

"I tried not to really think about anybody but myself", Kerr said.

"I had a great feeling for my shots and putting today", she said.

"I love the fact that I am staying right across the road and I can go down to the beach whenever I want, just after I play and all that".

Jang was also nine-under when darkness fell, but her birdie Friday at the par-three eighth, the penultimate hole of her round, gave her sole possession of the lead.

"I've always thought about it", she said of the Hall of Fame.

There were 15 players left on the golf course when play was suspended. One shot behind her is Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, who began the third round in second place but shot a 2-under 70 in the third round.

Sharp is seeking her first career LPGA Tour victory.

Canadian Alena Sharp finished in fifth alone, after a tough bogey on the 72nd hole dropped her out of the runner-up position, but still, her fifth-place result was her best of 2017. Michelle Wie, the 2014 Lotte champion, made the cut on the number.

Tied with Jang and In Gee Chun was World No.1 Lydia Ko, who fired rounds of 65-64 on the weekend.

Playing her last tournament as a teenager, Ko ensured she will retain the top ranking into her 20s.

Su-Yeon, who finished her second round on Friday after bad weather affected Thursday's play, then shot a bogey-free seven-under-par 65 to reach 17 under.

For the second straight day, a morning tee time was a huge advantage.
