Local couldn't hang on

Royal Mayfair associate pro Jeanette Kerr had a nice little Cinderella story going there for 11 holes. Just one over par with seven holes to play, she was right in the mix at the CN Canadian Women's Open.

It didn't last, one bad hole and a few missed putts has her in danger of missing the cut, but she wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

"I wish I would have done a little bit better, but all in all a great experience," said Kerr, after posting a seven-over 78.

"I was just trying to stay in the moment, enjoy it. Believe in myself that I could actually be out here playing."

Kerr's played a lot of golf, but says she's never experienced first-tee jitters like the ones she had yesterday.

"I don't think I've ever felt that nervous on a golf course. My body was trembling. I had to tell myself, you can do this. And I hit it right down the middle."

She held it together pretty well, except for bogeys on her 12th, 14th and 15th holes and a triple (thanks to an unplayable lie) on her 16th.
