Good Teachers, Lpga Career, Chronology, A Victory And A Loss On The Same Day

1974-

Australian golfer

Australian golf star Karrie (pronounced "kahr-rie," rhymes with "starry") Webb has been fighting Annika Sorenstam for the title of the best female golfer in the world since Webb joined the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour in 1995. Webb, who was only 20 when she joined the tour, has been compared repeatedly to Tiger Woods, since both are young phenoms—with excellent records of wins—who regularly outplay most of the veterans on their respective tours.
