LPGA: Cristie Kerr hit an 8-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic, spoiling 17-year-old Paula Creamer’s bid to make history.

With the tournament on the line, Kerr calmly made the putt to finish with a 3-under 68. The shot came after playing partner Creamer missed a 10-footer that would have sent them to a playoff hole.

Creamer was vying to become the first amateur to win an LPGA title since Joanne Carner in 1969.

Kerr finished with a three-day total of 11-under 202 to win her third LPGA title and the $195,000 top prize at a breezy Seaview Marriott Resort course.

Creamer (69) and Giulia Sergas (71) finished one shot back at 203, followed by Juli Inkster (67) and Mi Hyun Kim (69) at 204.

Denise Killeen, who held a two-shot lead going into the final round and was hoping to win her first LPGA event since joining the tour 12 years ago, shot an 8-over 79 Sunday and finished seven shots from the top.

SOCCER: The United States advanced in World Cup qualifying Sunday with a 3-2 victory against Grenada on a soggy field in St. George’s Grenada.

Landon Donovan, Josh Wolff and DaMarcus Beasley scored for the Americans, who moved into the CONCACAF qualifying semifinals, which begin in August. The U.S. team, ranked ninth in the world, won the opener of the home-and-home series 3-0 in Columbus, Ohio last week.

Playing on a waterlogged field on the tiny Caribbean island, the Americans immediately pressed the attack. They scored in the seventh minute when Wolff intercepted the ball and fed Claudio Reyna. He sped down the wing and crossed for Donovan, who put a shot into the lower right side.

Grenada, ranked 138th, tied it on a penalty kick just six minutes later. Jason Roberts beat Kasey Keller for the goal.

But Wolff gave the Americans the lead for good when he scored off a scramble following a corner kick in the 23rd minute.

Beasley made it 3-1 in the 79th minute, only to see Ricky Charles score for Grenada a minute later.
