New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Another exciting victory for an Audemars Piguet golf ambassador with yesterday’s victory by Cristie Kerr at the LPGA Championship (the second major championship of the year) at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, NY. With this win she is adding a second Grand Slam title to her tally, after winning the US Women’s Open three years ago.

Kerr started the final day of the tournament with an 8-stroke lead and won by an incredible 12-strokes. Just two weeks ago, Kerr was victorious at the LPGA State Farm Classic. Kerr now becomes the first American to be No. 1 in the world rankings with this latest victory as well as only the fifth player to hold the No. 1 spot since the rankings were introduced in 2006.

“With Cristie’s win today, no other watch brand can say they have had as many tournament victories this year as Audemars Piguet. Cristie as well as our other golf ambassadors Anthony Kim, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, and Lee Westwood truly exemplify the brand’s core value of excellence. We are incredibly honored to support such remarkable talent.” says Philippe Merk, CEO of Audemars Piguet.

In addition to Cristie Kerr, the AP Golf Ambassador Team represents the company’s commitment to golf by gathering an array of exceptional players for the brand. The manufacturer’s illustrious pro-golfer roster includes Lam Chih Bing, Darren Clarke, Nick Faldo, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castaño, Miguel Angel Jiménez, Shiv Kapur, Shingo Katayama, Anthony Kim, Thomas Levet, Graeme McDowell, Rory McIlroy, Rocco Mediate, Morgan Pressel, Vijay Singh, DJ Trahan, and Lee Westwood.
