Aussie veteran the Master again for eighth time

KARRIE Webb started the final day of the Ladies Australian Masters at Royal Pines two shots behind the leaders yesterday.

But she stormed home to win her eighth victory at the tournament and equal the legendary Sam Snead's record, who won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times in a run spanning four decades from the 1930s to 1960s.

The 38-year-old won her first Masters in 1998, and accelerated home on the Gold Coast yesterday by shooting five birdies, four which came on the back nine, to finish 13 under par.

Her five-metre birdie putt on the 17th hole took her to that score, severely denting the hopes of talented youngsters and overnight leaders, Victorian amateur Su-Hyun Oh, 16, and Thailand's 17-year-old Ariya Jutanugarn.

Korean Chelle Choi finished in a three-way tie with the teenagers for second.The 501m par five 12th hole also proved crucial.

While Webb moved to 10-under with a birdie, Oh made a double bogey seven to drop back to 10-under, and her playing partner, Jutanugarn, made a bogey to also slip back to 10-under.
