DENHAM, England (AP) - Hall of Famer Karrie Webb rallied to win the Ladies European Masters on Sunday, making two eagles in a 7-under 65 for a one-stroke victory.

The 38-year-old Australian, preparing for the Women's British Open at St. Andrews, had a 16-under 200 total at Buckinghamshire. She has three victories this season, also winning the Australian Ladies Masters in February and the LPGA Tour's ShopRite LPGA Classic in June.

``I came over here to get some tournament rounds under my belt, get some confidence going, get into the time zone and British conditions,'' Webb said. ``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.''

Webb eagled the par-5 ninth and 14th holes.

``I hadn't played the par 5s particularly well this week,'' Webb said. ``It's a great boost when conditions are tough.''

South Africa's Ashleigh Simon was second. She closed with a 69.

The Women's British Open starts Thursday on the Old Course.
