Cristie Kerr Forced to Withdraw


An injury to Cristie Kerr's left knee has forced her to withdraw from the season-ending Arch Wireless Championship. Kerr, who had surgery on the knee last year, reinjured it Tuesday night and will drive to her Miami home from Daytona Beach, Fla., to be examined by doctors.
'I don't think the surgery had anything to do with it,' said Kerr. 'I just banged my knee really hard, and anyone who hit their knee as hard as I did, surgery or not, would be hurting.'
She will be replaced in the field by Scotland's Catriona Mathew.
