Gladstone, NJ (Sports Network) - On a day when many of the top seeds advanced
at the Sybase Match Play Championship, Cristie Kerr fell.
The fifth-seeded Kerr lost Friday to Vicky Hurst, 1-up, after dropping the
first extra hole. They were all square through 18, but Kerr stumbled to a
bogey at the next hole at Hamilton Farm Golf Club.
Hurst managed par to earn the victory and advance to Saturday's third round.
While Kerr, last year's runner-up, suffered an upset, four of the top-10 seeds
moved on -- world No. 1 Yani Tseng, Na Yeon Choi, Stacy Lewis and Amy Yang.
Sun Young Yoo, the 2010 winner of this event, also advanced.
But Jiyai Shin, the seventh seed, fell to Anna Nordqvist. The Swede birdied
the 17th hole to record a 2 & 1 win.
