GOLD COAST, Australia – Eight-time winner and defending champion Karrie Webb was disqualified from the Australian Ladies Masters on Friday for signing an incorrect scorecard after the second round.
American Cheyenne Woods, niece of Tiger Woods, and South African Stacey Lee Bregman both followed first round 69s with six-under second rounds of 67 to lead the tournament by a shot at 10-under 136.
Webb signed for a second-straight 1-over 74 which would have made the cut. She quickly notified officials at the Ladies European Tour event she had made an error, signing for par on the 12th when she had made bogey.
Ladies European Tour tournament director Fraser Munro said "it was quite clear she signed for an incorrect scorecard. She was obviously disappointed."
