Karrie Webb lands Fifth Australian Open Win

Karrie Webb is widely regarded as one of the top players in the LPGA. Over the weekend, Webb landed her fifth lifetime win in the Women's Australian Open. Webb shot 4-under 68 in the final round to beat Chella Choi by a single stroke to take the win according to Star Tribune.

The win also gave Webb her 40th LPGA title. She previously won the Australian Open in 2000, 2002, 2007, and 2008. "I got off to a great start and I just did a great job mentally today," Webb said. "I can't think of another time when I held myself together as well as that."

Webb had a bad week last week when she was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard during the Australian Ladies Masters. She was the defending champion at the event. "I was happy to see the conditions were going to be a little tougher today," Webb said. "I felt like that gave me a chance to make up some ground."

The golfers at the event were hampered by high winds that made play difficult. Webb finished her round ahead of Choi and had to wait for the other golfer to finish to see if her score held.

"When you're on the course you feel like you have some control, but when you're done you have no control and you just have to wait and see," Webb said. "I actually thought once Chella had that putt on the last, I've played with her quite a bit and I was expecting that one to go in."

Had Choi pulled out the win, it would have been her first LPGA title.

People walk past an electric quotation b
The good news for Karrie Webb is that her name doesn’t start with a number. Beth Daniel remembers what that was like. It started about the time she won the Women’s Canadian Open to become the oldest winner in LPGA Tour history, and thereafter she was referred to as “46-year-old Beth Daniel.” The number kept going up until 50-year-old Beth Daniel retired in 2007. “My age became part of my name,” she said Monday, laughing about it now. Webb is only 39. She is one year older than Tiger Woods, ...
