Karrie Webb holds off Chella Choi to win Women's Australian Open for 5th time

Karrie Webb won the Women's Australian Open for the fifth time Sunday, shooting a 4-under 68 in the final round to beat Chella Choi by one stroke.

Webb birdied the 18th hole to take the outright lead, then watched as Choi, who shot a course-record 62 on Saturday to surge into the third-round lead, pushed a 10-foot putt wide of the hole at 18 to miss the chance for a playoff.

Webb, who clinched her 40th LPGA title, finished at 12-under 276 overall. She previously won the Australian Open in 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2008.

The No. 8-ranked Australian was disqualified from the Australian Ladies Masters last week after signing an incorrect scorecard. She had been the defending champion at the event.
