WILLIAMSBURG, Va. – Cristie Kerr emerged from a four-way tie for the lead with a tap-in birdie on the par-5 15th hole and held on to win her second Michelob Ultra Open.

Kerr, who also won in 2005, went from one shot behind to the lead when Song-Hee Kim of South Korea made a double bogey on the par-4 16th and Kerr made her birdie moments later a hole behind.

The putt gave her a 16-under total, and when other challengers In-Kyung Kim and third-round co-leader Lindsey Wright also made bogeys, Kerr led by two shots with two holes left.

Kerr finished at 16-under 268 for her 12th career victory and the $330,000 winner’s check.

In-Kyung Kim finished in second place when Wright bogeyed the finishing hole. Wright, who shared the third-round lead with Kerr, and Song-Hee Kim shared fourth at 271.
