Australia's Karrie Webb overhauled the overnight leaders to win a record eighth Australian Ladies Masters title at Royal Pines on Sunday.
Karrie Webb of Australia hits her tee shot on the ninth hole during the final round of the CME Group Titleholders at the TwinEagles Club on November 18, 2012 in Naples, Florida. Webb overhauled the overnight leaders to win a record eighth Australian Ladies Masters title at Royal Pines on Sunday.
Webb, 38, swept home on the back of four birdies in her closing six holes to win the 54-hole event by two shots.
Webb carded a final round of five-under 67 for 13-under 203 to beat overnight leaders, Australia's Oh Su-Hyun (70-64-71) and Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn (69-65-71).
South Korea's Chella Choi also finished joint second after rounds of 69-67-69.
Webb's finish gave her a winning start to 2013 after her first-ever winless calender year in 2012.
"I'm very happy, it never gets old to get a win here. What a way to start the year," she said.
Webb won the first of her eight titles in 1998 with her other victories coming in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2010.
