Karrie is undisputedly Australia’s greatest ever woman golfer, winning numerous tournaments throughout the world and has won by far more prize money than any other. She is also known as one of the most consistent golfers in the world. Her world #1 ranking is certainly well deserved.
Webb began her professional golfing career in 1994 playing on the Ladies European Tour where she finished second at the Australian Ladies Open and the Futures Tour in the US, where she won one tournament. In 1995 she became the youngest ever winner of the Weetabix Women’s British Open in her rookie season in Europe. In 1996 Webb won her first LPGA tournament in her second LPGA start at the HEALTHSOUTH Inaugural on the fourth hole of a sudden death playoff. She won three other tournaments and become the first LPGA player to win $1 million mark in a single season topping the year end money list. She was also the 1996 LPGA Rookie of the Year.
Webb qualified for entry to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2000, but was not eligible for induction until she has played ten LPGA Tour events in each of ten seasons. She met this criterion on June 9, 2005 when she completed the first round of the LPGA Championship. At age 30, she became the youngest living person ever to enter the Hall of Fame, and kept that distinction until 2007, when fellow LPGA star Se Ri Pak was inducted.
Webb staged a comeback season in 2006. In the final round at the Kraft Nabisco Championship she holed a 116-yard shot from the fairway to eagle the 18th hole and then birdied the same hole in a sudden-death playoff to beat Lorena Ochoa and win her second Kraft Nabisco Championship. She won four other tournaments including the Evian Masters and Mizuno Classic. Her 2006 Kraft Nabisco win took her into the top ten of the Women's World Golf Rankings for the first time since they were introduced in February 2006.
Her 35 LPGA Tour victories places her tied for twelfth on the list of players with the most career LPGA tournament wins.
