Webb Weaves her Magic for No.8 at RACV Royal Pines
Sunday 3 February 2013 – Queensland, Australia — Australian Karrie Webb has won the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters for an incredible eighth time and in doing so she equals Sam Snead’s record of winning the same event eight times.
Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times in a run spanning four decades. Webb first won at RACV Royal Pines in 1998 and her most recent victory was in 2010.
Webb, who started the final round two shots behind teenagers, Su-Hyun Oh and Ariya Jutanugarn, fired a flawless round of five under par 67 to finish at top of the leader board at 13-under-par and two clear of the field at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast.
Webb didn’t feel it for the first nine holes and posted her only birdie on the par 5 3rd to go out in 35.
“I wasn’t feeling it on the front nine, I really hang in there, I didn’t hit a lot of quality shots, but just managed to shot one-under on the front” said Webb after her round.
A great up and down on the par 4 10th, after an errant drive was the key to her final round: “If I didn’t get up and down there, there would have been no momentum going forward and I would have really struggled to keep up.”
