‘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 with a string of major tournament wins, her tour de force began at the US Women’s Open at Southern Pines in North Carolina in 2007 and has continued unabated ever since with hundreds of Top Tens. 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.
She has been busy ever since notching up scores of LPGA victories, including two major Championships (2007 US Women’s Open and 2010 LPGA) a dozen Solheim Cup appearances and hard-earned tour victories at Wendy’s Three. No wonder she achieved the status of being 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 known for its active engagement 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.
