Kristy McPherson Places Runner-up At First Major of 2009


Kristy McPherson finished one stroke behind Brittany Lincicome at the Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first major for the 2009 year on the LPGA Tour. Kristy was wearing the new women’s eyewear piece, Commit (bronze frames with bronze polarized lenses) and she fell in love with both the fit and look.

This was Kristy’s first appearance at the Kraft Nabisco Championship and she started off hot and stayed hot all weekend. She was leading the tournament going into the finial round on Sunday all the way up to the 18th hole. Fellow American Brittany Lincicome eagled the 18th securing her first Major victory of her career.

“Every aspect of Kraft was an invaluable learning experience,” said Kristy McPherson. “Success tends to come easier for some but for me, patience is key and I know my time will come.”

This being a major championship, Kristy received an insane amount of exposure on ESPN2 on sat and CBS on Sunday. On Sunday, McPherson was wearing Oakley’s pink LAYBACK top and black CHARM skort.

Jimin Kang, also an Oakley Apparel and Eyewear athlete, finished tied for 8th place. She wore the red RX Jupiters with transition lenses.

In addition, Lindsey Wright and Karrie Webb, both eyewear athletes, finished in the top ten.
