Mahan and Kerr win Notah Begay Challenge

Cristie Kerr and Hunter Mahan combined for an 11-under 61 to win the Notah Begay Challenge by one shot over Annika Sorenstam and Rickie Fowler.

Tiger Woods and Suzann Pettersen were another shot behind in third, and Natalie Gulbis and Ebgay were fourth in the best-ball format for charity Wednesday.

Woods saw his partner carry much of the load at the event in upstate New York’s Turning Stone Resort’s Atunyote Golf Club.

The duo finished at 9-under 36, two behind Mahan and Kerr.

"She played great," Woods said about Pettersen. "She definitely carried me."

"It was all right today," Woods added in reference to his much-discussed left knee and Achilles tendon injuries. "I've been hurt the majority of the year and haven't quite gotten to be able to (get) the reps that I need to do what (swing coach) Sean (Foley) wants me to do. "

"We were right on track at Augusta, but unfortunately I got hurt there and then it was a huge setback. We're just trying to get back to where I was at Augusta, and it's coming around. I just need more reps."

Begay said he liked much of what he saw in Woods' performance.

"I saw enough good things to know that he's making some progress," Begay said. "It was nice to be out there with him."

The event is the chief fundraiser for Begay’s foundation, which is dedicated to helping fight obesity and diabetes in the Native American community.

A condition that Woods is familiar with and holds close to his heart.

"I can relate to this because my father went through it," Woods said. "My father developed type-2 diabetes.

"It's tough to watch someone go through that, and what Notah's trying to do is cut that off. I want to be here for that. To be here and have the opportunity to do this, it's an honor."
