With three wins in the Kingsmill Championship over the years, Cristie Kerr is an obvious fan favorite when the LPGA comes to Williamsburg.

Her last victory at Kingsmill came in 2013. For the next few years her performance was trending in the wrong direction. In 2016 she had no victories.

Then came off season knee surgery and a recommitment to the game. She is working harder than ever and it's working. She has a win in 2017 and 5 straight top 10's.

Kerr tees off at 1:17 on Thursday in the opening round of this year's Kingsmill Championship.
