On a roll- Karrie Webb wins the ANZ Australian Ladies Masters

The LPGA golf season begins Thursday at the SBS Open, but Australian Karrie Webb has already won two tournaments. From AP-

GOLD COAST, Australia – After two days of nearly flawless golf, Karrie Webb stumbled late but held on Sunday to win her sixth ANZ Australian Ladies Masters.

She had a comfortable four-stroke lead through much of the back nine at Royal Pines before bogeying the 17th and 18th holes for a 4-under 68 and a two-stroke victory over Shin Ji-yai of
South Korea.

Webb, who came from seven strokes behind Saturday with a course-record, 10-under 62 to share the third-round lead with fellow Australian Michelle Ellis, again made clutch putts to follow up last week’s six-stroke
Australian Open win.

With two victories in two starts in Australia, Webb begins play on the LPGA Tour in the SBS Open at Turtle Bay, Hawaii beginning Thursday.

Karrie was playing at home in both these wins but they are still impressive because of the fields. She won four times last year and finished 2nd on the money list. With this start Karrie could be in for an even bigger 2007.
