‘I am honoured to be the face of a brand that, for me, symbolises art, expertise and excellence.’
Cristie Kerr is real fighter, a sportswoman and someone who is not afraid to stand up and fight for those in need. One of the most decorated women golfers ever, she has 20 major tournament wins to her credit, having won the US Women’s Open at Southern Pines in North Carolina in 2007 and no less than 180 Top Tens since. She was delighted when Richard Mille invited her to become part of the family.
Since 2014, Cristie wears the RM 007, a model in titanium, on courses all around the world, striking a hole in one in terms of elegance and reliability.
Cristie Kerr had been playing since she was 9. She quickly climbed to the top of the player rankings in the state of Florida while playing on the High School golf team – for Boys! Her amateur career is one of the most decorated in the game’s history, punctuated by a Curtis Cup appearance in 1996 and winning Low-Amateur honors at the U.S. Women’s Open in 1996. It was then that she decided to turn professional, gaining momentum year after year.
To-date she has accumulated 20 LPGA victories, including two major Championships (2007 U.S. Women’s Open and 2010 LPGA), 9 Solheim Cup appearances and 4 Wendy’s Three tour victories. No wonder she is today the highest earning American female golfer of all-time.
Cristie wants to share this success with others. She established the Birdies for Breast Cancer foundation which is actively engaged in the fight against breast cancer. Her association brings together several stars of both women’s and men’s golf with other leading celebrities, collecting over $3 million in its first ten years. As if that wasn’t enough, she also created Curvature Wines which offers vintages of 2006-2014 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2009-2015 Chardonnay. 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.
