Cristie Kerr closed with a 7-under 65 on Sunday and won the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, Calif., for her first LPGA Tour title in nearly two years.
Kerr made four straight birdies on the back nine at Aviara to pull away from Mirim Lee and Lydia Ko. It was her 17th career win, and her first since May 2013 at the Kingsmill Championship.
Kerr's 20-under 268 broke the tournament record by six shots. Her victory ended a streak of seven consecutive tour victories for South Korean-born players.
Ko, 17, closed with a 67. It was her 28th consecutive round under par on the LPGA Tour, one short of Annika Sorenstam's record set in 2004.
•David Frost overcame a one-stroke penalty for moving a ball marker on the par-3 17th and won the Champions Tour's Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic when Tom Lehman missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the last hole.
"I thought I hit a good putt," Lehman said. "It certainly didn't do what I thought it was going to do. I thought it was going to break left and it didn't."
Frost won by a stroke over Lehman and 2011 champion Kevin Sutherland.
