Welcome to Ochoa & The Others! In the tradition of our landmark blog behemoth Tiger & The 49ers, we're counting down the top 10 women currently playing in the LPGA. We continue onward.
No. 6: Cristie Kerr
2008 Wins: 1 (Safeway Classic)
Top 3s: 2
Top 10s: 11
Money Earned: $1,108,839
2008 recap: 2008 marked another solid year for Kerr, highlighted by a July-to-October run in which she finished in the top 10 in seven of eight straight tournaments. She also notched two top-10 major finishes, the ninth year of the last ten in which she's landed in the top 10 in at least one major.
2009 outlook: Consistency is Kerr's key. She's money when she's playing well; she ranked second on the tour in both birdies and greens in regulation. She's very much in the prime of her career now, and is always a threat to make a run, any week.
