Cristie Kerr and Scratch Golf form a decidedly dynamic pairing. A pairing that resulted in two eagle chip-ins on Saturday at the Honda PTT LPGA Thailand.
The USA's number one woman golfer carded a 6-under-par 66 in the tournament's third round. Her eagles came on holes 7 and 18. It was a bogey free day that also included a couple of birdies, and earned the year's first on-course contributions for Birdies for Breast Cancer, the charity Cristie founded and works so tirelessly for. Not only does Cristie donate fifty dollars for every birdie and one hundred per eagle, in addition, her sponsor Scratch Golf, whose wedges were instrumental in those two eagles will donate one hundred for each of them.
Scratch Golf is a family run company out of Portland, Oregon that started with a grinding wheel in a garage in 2003. They produce irons, hybrids and putters, but are best known for their amazing custom-fit wedges. The PGA Tour's Ryan Moore, a player known to be ultra-discerning about endorsement signed a deal with the unique club company in 2009.
Cristie Kerr finished the Honda PTT LPGA Thailand in a tie for 4the at 13 under for tournament and looks to be on her way to another stellar season. In 2009 she made every cut, had 13 top 10 finishes and a victory at the Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill. As the LPGA now moves on to Singapore for the HSBC Women's Championship, Cristie is looking forward to her best year ever.
