Kerr holds U.S. Women's Open lead

BETHLEHEM, Pa., July 11 (UPI) -- Former champion Cristie Kerr widened her lead to two shots Saturday with a 1-over-par 72 in the third round of the U.S. Women's Open.

At 2-under 211, Kerr was the only player under par after 54 holes.


South Korea's Eun Hee Ji shot a 1-under 70 Saturday and moved into second place at even-par 213. Jean Reynolds (74) and Taiwan's Teresa Lu (70) shared third place at 2-over 215.

Paula Creamer, who had been just one shot off Kerr's 36-hole lead, fell eight strokes back after an eight-over 79 -- one of the worst rounds in Saturday's difficult day for scoring.
