Cathy Kratzert Gerring (born April 28, 1961) is an American professional golfer who played on the LPGA Tour.

Born Cathy Kratzert, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, she played college golf at Ohio State University.

Gerring won three times on the LPGA Tour,[1] all in 1990.[2] She played on the 1990 Solheim Cup team.

In April 1992, Gerring was severely burned in a hospitality tent at the LPGA's Sara Lee Classic in Nashville, Tennessee.[3][4] Due to her injuries, she did not play again on the LPGA Tour until 1996.

Gerring's brother, Billy Kratzert, won four times on the PGA Tour. They are one of only two brother/sister pairs to win on both tours (the other is Jim Gallagher, Jr. and Jackie Gallagher-Smith).[5]
