GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) — Australia's Katherine Hull won the Australian Ladies Masters on Sunday, closing with a 4-under 68 for a five-stroke victory.

The 26-year-old, the Canadian Women's Open winner last year on the LPGA Tour, had a 16-under 272 total on the Royal Pines course.

Australia's Tamie Durdin (70) and South Korea's Ryu So-yeon (67) tied for second.

Six-time winner Karrie Webb shot a 73 to tie for 30th at 3 under.

``The most disappointing thing about the day was I felt really good going to the first tee,'' Webb said. ``I actually believed that I could shoot something that would give me a chance if the wind got up.''

Webb thinks she'll play well at next week's Women's Australian Open, where she'll be trying for her sixth national title.

``Even though it didn't look like it, there was some good feels with the putter,'' she said. ``It's probably the best I've felt for a long time.''
