Last week’s trivia question:

By winning the LPGA Championship on June 27 (the year’s first major) American Cristie Kerr became the number one female golfer in the world golf rankings. Name the first American female to hold this position.

Answer: Cristie Kerr

Some of you thought of this as a trick question, and perhaps it is. The Women’s World Rankings (also known for sponsorship reasons as the Rolex Rankings) were just introduced in 2006. After Kerr’s runaway victory at the LPGA Championship, Kerr stole the top rank away from Japan’s Ai Miyazato who was ranked first after Lorena Ochoa retired from the game.

Winner of a sleeve of Titleist golf balls: Mary Aiken (again). Mary is a two-time championship and recently told me that she is going to wait until she has a dozen balls won before she comes and picks them up.
