Cristie Kerr has won the rain-delayed LPGA State Farm Classic by one shot over Anna Nordqvist and Na Yeon Choi.

The final round of the event was played Monday due to weekend rains interrupting play. Kerr fought off flulike symptoms and late challenges from Nordqvist and Choi, shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round to finish at 22-under 266 at Panther Creek Country Club.

Kerr had a two-shot lead heading to the final hole, so a bogey on the final hole gave her the one-shot victory. It's her second State Farm Classic win, and she becomes the first American to win on the LPGA tour since Michelle Wie won the Lorena Ochoa Invitational last November.
