From the Bottom to the Top...in a Week



                Just a quick note on the Ladies’ Australian Open…  Karrie Webb just won her home Open for the fifth time successfully turning around from a disqualification to a victory in consecutive weeks by beating out some of the best players in the game hot on her heels.
                Last week during the Australian Ladies’ Masters Webb was disqualified for signing an incorrect score card in violation of Rule 6-6d.  On the 12th hole of the second round, Webb made a bogey 6 and did not notice that she signed for a par 5 when she returned the score card.  She returned to the official’s area minutes later, noticing the scoring error herself and she brought it to the attention of the officials.  Hoping it was a mistake in the scoring system she was upset to find out she had in fact signed for the incorrect score and was subject to disqualification.
                She wrote a note apologizing to her fans and sponsors, just another sign of a class act.  Thank you Karrie for exemplifying the honorable golfer and owning up to the mistake.  And then, congratulations on the victory!
