Karrie Webb wins eighth Australian Ladies Masters title

GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) - Karrie Webb has won her eighth Australian Ladies Masters title, coming from two strokes behind in the final round on Sunday with birdies on three of her final five holes for a 5-under-par 67 and a two-stroke victory.

Webb birdied the 14th hole at Royal Pines to take the lead for the first time during the final round, and then tapped in for birdie after her eagle putt just missed on 15.

The Australian veteran finished with a 13-under-par total of 203 in the 54-hole tournament, the season-opening event on the European Ladies Tour.

South Korea's Chella Choi finished tied for second, after a 69, with second-round co-leaders Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand, and Australian amateur Oh Su-hyun, who both shot final-round 71s. American Jessica Korda (71) was fifth, three shots behind.
