Wristy business: Injured Kerr heads to S. Korea


Cristie Kerr made the trip to Incheon, South Korea, this week where she’s going to try to tee it up at the LPGA HanaBank Championship in the start of the tour’s fall Asian swing.

Kerr, diagnosed with tendinitis in her right wrist, hasn’t played since withdrawing before her singles match at the Solheim Cup eight days ago. The United States lost 15-13 to the Europeans. Kerr left the range that Sunday in tears knowing she would have to concede the vital anchor match, and a point, to the Euros. Her agent and husband, Erik Stevens, said via text message Monday that Kerr was aiming to try to hit balls on Tuesday to get a better gauge whether she’ll be ready for Friday's start of HanaBank. Kerr is being treated with ice, anti-inflammatory medication and therapy. She’s the highest ranked American in the world at No. 3 in the Rolex rankings.
