Webb inducted into Sport Australia Hall of Fame
One of Australia’s greatest ever golfers, Karrie Webb, has been inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame.
The long-overdue nod to our most successful women’s player ever makes Webb the 13th golfer to enter the Hall of Fame joining the likes of Peter Thomson, Greg Norman and fellow LPGA major winner, Jan Stephenson.

The 47-year-old was previously honoured by the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2005, becoming the youngest person at the time to receive that title.
“I’m so humbled to be included amongst so many great Aussies that have accomplished so much and flown the Aussie flag so proudly around the world,” said Webb on social media.
The proud North Queenslander won 41 times on the LPGA Tour along with five Women’s Australian Open titles and eight Australian Ladies Masters making her the most successful women’s golfer this century.
And the titles keep coming for Webb, who won a major title as recently as this year with her victory on the seniors circuit at the Senior LPGA Championship in July.
She is returning home to Australia to play in the Women’s Australian Open in Melbourne starting December 1.
