Karrie Webb is starting a streak of her own on the Ladies tour. The 26-year-old Australian made the Australian Ladies Masters her third win out of three tournaments, Golf equipment coming from two strokes back to deny Canada's Lorie Kane her first LPGA win.
Webb, callaway ft-i 25th anniversary driver who won the Office Depot event on the LPGA Tour and last week's Australian Open, took home her third Australian Ladies Masters trophy in a row.
Webb put pressure on leaders Kane and Laura Davies early with four birdies in the first five holes. With Kane's birdie on the first Callaway FT-i Squareway Wood, Webb held a one-shot lead until she made the turn. Webb couldn't save par on the 10th and three-putted for bogey on the 11th. And Kane was lead at 13-under-par.
Webb pulled even with Kane with a birdie on 15, then lost a stroke just as quickly when she couldn't get up-and-down at the 16th.
"I thought I'd have to birdie 17 and 18 to have a chance, callaway ft i-brid irons And Callaway FT Irons then I missed the green on the 17th and thought it was probably over," said Webb.
That's when the heroics began. Webb chipped-in for birdie and then nailed a 12-foot birdie putt on the final hole to finish at 14-under-par. It was now up to Kane to answer with a birdie of her own on the 18th Callaway Irons, but the nine-time runner-up couldn't convert the 25-footer to tie.
