Karrie Webb Surges to Another Win Down Under

by Jeff Skinnerwebb

Karrie Webb knows how to bounce back.  After being disqualified last week for signing an incorrect scorecard Webb bounced back in the best way possible: she charged to a come from behind win in her national open.

Webb started the day fives shots off the lead but after back to back opening birdies she was on her way to her fifth Australian Open win.  Webb continues to add to her Hall of Fame credentials. 

This is her 40th career LPGA victory in her 20 year career and she sits in second place on the all time money list with $18,340,097.  She was thrilled with her days work,

”I feel very fortunate to have won today but I liked my chances at the start of the day because of the wind picking up,” said Webb. “If we had another day like we had the first three days, I probably was a little too far back to have a chance, so I was thankful for the weather changing and I played as good as I have in a very long time.”
