WILLIAMSBURG, Va. Ernie Stautner Jersey . -- Cristie Kerr watched her short winning par putt fall on the second hole of a playoff against Suzann Pettersen, hugged her caddie, a few players who stayed around to watch and had one more hug she had waited a long time to give. "Wheres my dad?" Kerr said during the celebration Sunday on the 18th hole at Kingsmills River Course. Her dad, Michael Kerr, was on his way -- as fast as his motorized cart would take him. "I rarely get nervous when she plays," he said. "Ive seen the good, the bad and the ugly. This was the most nervous I have been. It wasnt just the playoff. It was the last three holes. Honestly, I was in the bar drinking, which I dont normally do." Kerrs victory in the Kingsmill Championship, the 16th of her career and third in the event, was the first one with her dad present. A Vietnam veteran and career school teacher who has had both knees replaced, he stayed with her throughout her round, then took the cart to the bar, figuring he couldnt manoeuvr well enough to keep up in the big crowd. "For the last 17 years, Ive been dreaming of watching her win a professional tournament," he said. "It was a dream come true. If I never see anything else in my life, this was it and this was the best thing thats ever happened to me." His daughter made it so with a refusal to lose, even when she failed to cash in on her best shot of the day, an approach on the first extra hole that left her with a 6-foot putt to win. It never even touched the cup, sliding by on the right. "I wasnt going to lose, not today, not with my dad here," Kerr said. She almost let the prospect of having the moment take it away. "I thought about it a little bit more like before I hit that first putt in the playoff," Kerr said of her desire to win with her father watching. "I thought about it a little more and I got a little emotional. Maybe thats why I pushed it and didnt make it. "The second time, I was going to make sure, OK, I can think about that after. Lets take care of what weve got to take care of right now," Kerr said she told herself. "Emotions are good, though. We need emotions to play good." Kerr closed with a 2-under 69, and Pettersen had a 67 to finish at 12-under 272 on the River Course. The final pairing had a Solheim Cup feel to it, but Kerr was pleased with the way she stayed within herself. "I was really just proud of the way I tried to tend and take care of my own game today, especially with Suzann," she said. "She likes to try and intimidate people out there, but Im not really easily intimidated so I just took care of my own game." Pettersen, whose first career victory came in a playoff at Kingsmill in 2007, had won at Hawaii in a playoff a few weeks ago, and lost for only the third time in eight career playoffs. She didnt stick around for the celebration. "I had a chance to win outright on 18 in regulation and I hit a good putt," Pettersen told LPGA officials when reached by telephone. "Obviously, its disappointing to lose in the playoff, but there was a lot of good to take from it." It was the second year in the row the tournament ended in a playoff. Last year, Paula Creamer and Jiyai Shin played the longest two-player playoff in tour history -- nine holes -- before Shin won. The victory came Monday morning, after the two played the 18th hole eight times in a row Sunday night. The playoff format was changed for this year, with the plan to play No. 18 three times, then move to the par-4 16th, where Shin finally won last year, but Kerr made sure the huge gallery that lined the closing fairway got to see it end. The finish turned into a two-player battle after looking like it might get wild. Ariya Jutanugarn, the Thai 17-year-old who led after the first two rounds, made five birdies on the back nine in a 66 to surge into a tie for third with Ilhee Lee, who closed with a career-best 67. Angela Stanford also had a share of third until the final hole, when she lipped out a short par putt for her first bogey in a closing 69. She shared fifth place with Stacy Lewis, who closed with a 70. At one point, Pettersen led by a shot, with Kerr, Jutanugarn, Lee and Stanford all one back. Kerr led most of the day, but when she missed the 14th green to the right, Pettersen hit her approach close. Kerrs sidehill chip left her a long two-putt, and Pettersens birdie created a two-shot swing and put her in front at -11. Just as they walked off the green, Lees third consecutive birdie moved her to 10 under, and Jutanugarns fifth birdie in six holes also got her to minus 10. Moments later, Stanford rolled in an eagle putt on the par-5 15th to also get to minus 10. The former champions wasted no time separating themselves again. Kerr had a chance to regain a share of the lead at No. 15, but her makeable eagle putt slid just by on the left, and she and Pettersen both had short birdie putts, giving the leaders some breathing room. Kerr, who made several tester putts to save par during her round, pulled even on the par-4 16th, rolling in another from inside 10 feet for birdie after Pettersens longer birdie attempt missed. Both parred in, with Pettersens long birdie try at No. 18 missing right by half an inch, and Kerr having to make yet another tester, this one from about 6 feet, to force the sudden death playoff. Torontos Rebecca Lee-Bentham closed with a 73 and finished at 12-over 296. Charlottetowns Lorie Kane carded a 75, to wind up at 297. David DeCastro Steelers Jersey . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. Ladarius Green Steelers Jersey . Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents. .C. -- When North Carolina freshman Ryan Switzer reported to training camp in August he was a little miffed to learn he was third on the depth chart at punt returner.SOFIA, Bulgaria -- Rosie MacLennan led Canada to its first medal of the 2013 world trampoline and tumbling championships on Friday, winning silver in the womens team trampoline event with Samantha Sendel and Samantha Smith. After qualifying third on Thursday the Toronto threesome all hit solid routines to finish second in the five-team final with 159.995 points. Great Britain won gold with 164.845 points and Belarus took the bronze with a score of 158.450. "Were in an individual sport most of the time but we get to come here as a team, work together as a team and have a lot of fun," said MacLennan. "We were all confident in each other so no matter what happens out there we all have each others backs." MacLennan and Sendel also teamed up to finish first in the synchro qualification and will go for a medal in the final on Saturday. "I got into a little bit of trouble in the compulsory routine but we came back strong with the optional and it turned out to be one of our best," said Sendel, who stepped up as MacLennans new synchro partner this year after veteran Karen Cockburn took time off to start a family. Its been a winning combination for Sendel and MacLennan, the 2012 Olympic gold medal winner in individual trampoline. Jordan Berry Jersey. The pair won gold at the last two World Cup meets before the world championships. In the womens double mini trampoline qualification, 17-year-old Lexi Giesbrecht of Calgary upset a field of 27 competitors to place first with a score of 69.30 points at her first world championship as a senior. Svetlana Balandina of Russia was a close second with 69.00 points and Erin Jauch of the United States was third at 68.600. "I really didnt know what to expect so everything else at this point is a bonus," said Giesbrecht, who competes for a medal on Sunday along with veteran teammate Corissa Boychuk of Airdrie, Alta. "Corissa has done a really great job helping three new athletes move up to the senior team and Ive added a lot of difficulty to my routines," Giesbrecht added. In other events, brothers Kyle and Keegan Soehn of Red Deer, Alta., squeaked into the eighth and final spot of the mens synchro final while Vincent Lavoie of Drummondville, Que., and Katelyn Verschoor of Brantford, Ont., advanced to the mens and womens tumbling finals.
