Volvik RACV Ladies Masters, Its Wonderful Webb Again. February 04 2013

Karrie Webb / Scott Powick SMP Images Wonderful Karrie Webb won the Volvik RACV Ladies Masters again, this is the eighth time Karrie has lifted this trophy, which equals Sam Snead's record of winning the same event eight times. Sam won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times. Karrie said the record was on her mind and it inspired her as she completed the tournament with a last round of -5 under par 67, and a two shot win at the Royal Pines golf course. Karrie spoke about the win being a springboard for the LPGA season in America, and her round; " I am very happy, it never gets old when you get a win, what a way to start the year! I’m very happy. The key to my round was that up and down on 10. I had a long bunker shot there, played a really good shot. 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. I put a bit too much pressure on myself but I'm now able to dismiss negative thoughts or nervy thoughts pretty easily and just commit to the shot which is a very good feeling. I've had seven other times that I've won and I think some years it's helped and some it hasn't. I don't want to raise my expectations too high, I think it tends to backfire on me a little bit." Talented teenagers, Australian amateur Su-Hyun Oh and Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn were co-leaders heading into the last day's play, they eventually had to settle for joint second along with Korean Chelle Choi.
