KARRIE WEBB has fired another remarkable final round comeback to win her 41st LPGA victory and 53rd overall.
The 39 year old started the fourth round of the 2014 JTBC Founders Cup at the Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix, Arizona, in 20th place, six strokes behind overnight leader Lydia Ko.
Webb promptly executed a 9-under 63 that none of those following could better.
It was Webb’s second win of the year following a similar come from behind performance at the Women’s Australian Open at the Victoria Golf Club in February.
Webb has won a career seven major championships and the World Golf Hall of Fame member is regarded by many as Australia’s greatest-ever golfer.
She is now likely to move into the top five in the women’s Rolex Rankings and will be one of the favourites at the year’s first major, the Kraft Nabisco Championship, in a couple of weeks.
“I didn’t expect to be sitting here at the start of the day,” Webb said at her post-victory press conference. “Even actually when I finished the day I didn’t expect to be sitting here. So I feel a little bit lucky, I guess, to be sitting here. But it doesn’t make it feel any less special.Founders Cup Leaderboard
