Se Ri Pak, the 34-year-old LPGA golf star from South Korea, had a nice return to the tour yesterday.

Playing for the first time since injuring her left shoulder in early April of this year, Pak shot a 1-under 71 to become the front-runner after the second round of the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

The shocker of the tournament on Friday was the retirement of Grace Park. The 33-year-old had some success on the LPGA Tour with six wins and a majors win, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2004.

Pak is at a 3-under-par 141, one shot ahead of Inbee Park (70), Paula Creamer (72), Mika Miyazato (72) and Sandra Gal (71).

Cristie Kerr wins LPGA Championship; is the new #1 women’s golfer in world

compiled from staff, wire and LPGA reports

It seems like every week, the LPGA Tour has a new number 1 golfer.

The shuffling started when long-time number golfer, Lorena Ochoa suddenly retired and since that time there have been three golfers achieve the status of number one. It goes to show, that women’s golf does not have a clear-cut number one.

Well, if they do, it has to be the beautiful Cristie Kerr, who has been the most consistent golfer all season long.

Kerr shot a 6-under-par 66 to win the LPGA Championship by an unheard of and eye-popping 12 strokes Sunday in Pittsford, New York.

With the second major championship of her career, Kerr, who finished the tournament at 19-under-par 269, is set to become the first American to grab the top spot in the world in the women’s golf rankings, which was introduced only four short years ago.

Starting the final round with an eight-stroke lead, Kerr opened with six pars before getting birdies on three of her next four holes at Locust Hill Country Club.

The LPGA Tour officials have projected that Kerr will take over the top spot in the world ahead of Japan’s Ai Miyazato when the rankings are released on Monday.

Miyazato shot a 66 to finish at 5 under and in a tie for third with Jiyai Shin (71). Song-Hee Kim (69) was second.

Cristie Kerr has been on a roll all season long. She’s posted three top–three finishes, including winning the State Farm Classic two weeks ago.

So there is no surprise that she is holding an eight-stroke lead after three rounds in the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

Kerr has had great focus all week and it was definitely evident during a rain-soaked round at the Locust Hill Country Club, where she went 13-under 203 entering the final round on Sunday. If she wins, it’ll be her second major title.

Kerr’s advantage tops the previous largest entering the final round of the LPGA Championship, Mickey Wright led by seven in 1961 on her way to a title.

Kerr fell just short of matching the largest 54-hole lead at an LPGA major set by Babe Zaharias, who had a 10-stroke lead at the 1954 U.S. Women’s Open.

Mika Miyazato double-bogeyed number 18 to finish at 72 and fall into a three-way tie for second with rookie Azahara Munoz and Jimin Kang after both finished with 70′s in the LPGA Tour’s second major of the year.
