The wealth has been spread around on the LPGA Tour during 2017 with eight players having won more than once coming into this week’s year-ending CME Group Tour Championship. It’s an all-star list of golfers, but one name stands out.
At age 40, Cristie Kerr is 10 years older than any of this season’s multiple winners, and twice as old as one of them, 20-year-old Brooke Henderson. Women’s professional golf is a young person’s game these days. Kerr, though, is bucking the trend, arriving at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Florida, sixth on the 2017 LPGA money list and seventh in the Race to the CME Globe.
“I’m completely embracing my age,” Kerr says. “I have no choice. I think having a 4-year-old kind of keeps you young.”
