Kerr captures 20th LPGA golf title

Shanshan Feng in action at the LPGA Pro Am at TPC Kuala Lumpur

Ko shot 67 in her final round in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday night (NZ Time), but was four shots off the victor Cristie Kerr of the United States, who finished 15-under par, one shot in front of Danielle Kang, Jacqui Concolino and Shanshan Feng.

Play was suspended almost four hours Friday because of heavy rain at TPC Kuala Lumpur, but the round eventually finished with Feng on top by one at 11 under.

A one-under 70 in her third round wasn't enough for Ko, who has drifted eight shots off the lead into a share of 12th heading into the final round. They also were tied for the lead and waiting to see if there would be a playoff.

She made birdies on holes three and four before the delay to move into the lead. "I had my feet up, and then I was actually taking a nap", she said. "I mean, my ball-striking wasn't as accurate but I think overall three-under, bogey-free round is still a very good score for Saturday".

Kerr, became the first player since Catriona Matthew (42) at the 2011 Lorena Ochoa Invitational to win in her 40s.

"Honestly, I thought I could move the leaf", she said afterwards. "You know, that's just the way it goes sometimes in golf, but I stuck it out". God's blessed me with this gift. "I've been one of best for a long time, and very blessed to have that happen".

Oh began the day one shot behind first round leader Lydia Ko but both players struggled early to fall off the pace being set by a charging Shanshan Feng. A leaf is considered a loose impediment, and thus Kim broke Rule 13-4 with her action. Kim, a six-time LPGA Tour victor, dropped to 8 under and was in fourth place after a 65.
