Truth & Rumors: Cristie Kerr says caddying for Corey Pavin helped her game

Posted at 1:18 PM by Samantha Glover | Categories: Corey Pavin, Cristie Kerr, Truth & Rumors

Less than a week after caddying for Corey Pavin at the Charles Schwab Cup Championship, Cristie Kerr won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational. Kerr is back in the hunt again this week after an opening 67 at the CME Group Titleholders in Naples. Turns out Kerr's brief time as a caddie gave her game a boost.

According to Randall Mell's Golf Talk Central report, Pavin stayed with Kerr and her husband Erik Stevens at their Scottsdale, Ariz., home during the tournament. Kerr, the ideal caddy for Pavin because of her familiarity with the course, picked up his bag for the last four holes of the third round. He birdied three of them.

Kerr's stint as a caddy wasn't just good for Pavin, but gave Kerr a new perspective for when she played.

“I didn’t really appreciate what caddies go through,” Kerr said. “I got a new perspective with that, and I think it gave me a little more patience with myself.”
