Did you know?

Karrie Webb is one of the world's leading female golfers of all time, and Australia's most successful female professional golfer. In 1995, as a rookie on the Ladies European Tour, she won the Women's British Open (not a major at that time). When she won this event again in 2002 (by which time it had become a major), she completed a super career grand slam, having won every available major championship in women's golf. She lives in Boynton Beach, Florida, and continues to play (and win) on the LPGA Tour and other international tours around the world.
