Cristie Kerr has confirmed that she will play in the 2020 U.S. Women's Open (USWO), despite suffering from three dislocated ribs.

Cristie Kerr has told Golfweek that she is ready to compete just days after receiving 'multiple serious injuries' in a golf buggy accident.

The 43 year old suffered three dislocated ribs and severe bruising across her arms, hands and knees in the incident that occurred at the Old American Golf Club, Texas early on Friday morning.

But yesterday she told the publication that she had played 9 hole of the Cypress Course at Champions Golf Club and she planned on making her start with Brittany Lincicome and Gerina Piller.

She said she still felt pain 'everywhere' and was trying cyro therapy to help her heal.

“I actually played alright,” she said.

“Hitting it a little bit shorter today but that’s because I’m being cautious. There’s pain.”

What a woman. That's what you call dedication and a fighting spirit.

It's still not known what exactly happened to cause the accident last week, and when asked by Golfweek reporter Beth Ann Nichols, Cristie said it was “probably best not to go into that right now".

At 43, the two-time major winner is the oldest player in the field this week marks her 22nd start at the USWO. She hasn't missed one since 1998 and she won her first major at the tournament in 2007.

We hope she plays well this week and isn't in too much pain!
