Karrie Webb Reigns Supreme At The Buckinghamshire

World No.7 Karrie Webb claimed her third victory of the season at the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters with a brilliant final round of 65 at Buckinghamshire Golf Club in Denham, England.

The seven-time Major winner came from three strokes behind the overnight leaders to finish one ahead of South African Ashleigh Simon.

 

Having signed for a three-round total of 200, 16-under-par, Webb had a nervous wait in the clubhouse to determine whether Simon or Caroline Masson could birdie the last to tie and force a play-off.

 

However, having hit the hole with her second shot from a bunker, Masson ended with a bogey and Simon’s birdie putt drifted low of the hole, so handing the 38-year-old Australian the win and, with it, a cheque for 60,000 euro. In addition to the first prize cheque, Webb was also given a 16 carat diamond bracelet courtesy of Buckinghamshire Golf Club member Laurence Blunt.

 

Webb’s win is the ideal warm-up for the coming week’s Ricoh Women’s British Open, on the Old Course at St Andrews, where she will attempt to claim the title for the fourth time.

 

Webb said: “I came over here to get some tournament rounds under my belt, get some confidence going, get into the time zone and British conditions. To win is just the icing on the cake.

 

“I’m very happy with how I played this week and I got more and more confident on the course as the week went on.

 

“I hadn’t played the par fives particularly well this week but today I played them well with two eagles. It’s a great boost when conditions are tough.”

 

Webb made her intentions clear from the outset with a birdie on the first hole. Playing in blustery, but sunny conditions, she tied for the lead at 13-under after further birdies on the third, sixth and seventh holes.

 

She grabbed a two shot lead after going out in 30, with a simple eagle on the ninth hole.

She then made a second eagle on hole 14 after using a rescue club to hit the ball pin high, 30 feet left of the hole.

 

The only blemish of the day came on 16. However, after playing partner Christina Kim holed in one at the last, resulting in a loud roar from the packed gallery, she refocused and two-putted for a par.
