CRISTIE KERR: One of the all time founders in my opinion of golf, period. If it weren't for her I wouldn't have been interested in the game. I heard about that on the 1st tee this morning, and I was sad to hear that she has passed. She has led a very blessed, a great, long life, and her contribution to the game will be forever commendable.
There's a lot of things that she did do that you can't put your finger on. I know she had a great lust for life, a very long life. She meant the world to me. I knew her personally and didn't get a chance to meet with her before she passed. Right now she's in a better place.
Those founders of the LPGA, all of the players, including myself, we do not begin to thank them enough every day for what they've done for us and the game of golf.
