Cristie Kerr is Again Number One in the World

.
The life of a touring pro isn't an easy one.  As glamorous as it may seem, traveling the world to play golf requires a kind of nimbleness, adaptability and mental dexterity that few of us ever have to call upon in our day-to-day lives.













The resilient stars of the LPGA are needing to call upon all of those skills these days, as they continue their trek through Asia.

From Bangkok, Thailand where the temperatures hovered around 90 (F) degrees, the tour has moved on to Incheon, South Korea.  Located on the country's west coast, temperatures there have been in the 40s... with a blustery breeze thrown in to boot.

However, new (and former) world number one, Cristie Kerr is not letting the drastic weather change dampen her mood.  She's back at the top in the hotly contested Rolex Rankings, having reclaimed the coveted No. 1 spot from Ai Miyazzato yesterday when the updated rankings were released.  And that's just where she wants to be.

Kerr and Miyazato are two of several players who've been battling for number 1 since early in the season,  in a race that's become so close it seems to come down to one putt week after week. 

The Hana Bank Championship  begins later this week on the Ocean Course at Sky 72 Golf Club, and Cristie Kerr is without a doubt aiming to keep that #1 next to her name.
