Webb Notches No. 39

GALLOWAY , NEW JERSEY | On a weekend where survival was the biggest test, it was experience that made its way to the top on Sunday. Karrie Webb played her way through treacherous winds and unpredictable bounces to win the ShopRite LPGA Classic. It was Webb’s 39th LPGA Tour victory and her first since 2011, when she won twice on tour. Webb, a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, is a veteran of the LPGA Tour, having started in 1996, with seven major championship titles. “It never gets old and it never gets easier,” Webb said. “It was a tough day and I was glad to pull it out. I’ve played here 15 times and I’ve never had a decent shot (at winning). My grandmother has been ill and she said I had to win this for her.” Webb shot a 3-under 68 in the final round to win the tournament by two shots ahead of Shanshan Feng of China. Webb posted a 54-hole total of 209, 4-under par at the windblown Bay Course of the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. Webb started the day five shots back of Feng, the 36-hole leader, who had a three-shot lead on 18-year-old Moriya Jutanugarn of Thailand.
