Hull Wins By Five Strokes

February 07, 2009

GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) -- Australia's Katherine Hull won the Australian Ladies Masters on Sunday, closing with a 4-under 68 for a five-stroke victory.

The 26-year-old, the Canadian Women's Open winner last year on the LPGA Tour, had a 16-under 272 total on the Royal Pines course.

Australia's Tamie Durdin (70) and South Korea's Ryu So-yeon (67) tied for second.

Six-time winner Karrie Webb shot a 73 to tie for 30th at 3 under.

"The most disappointing thing about the day was I felt really good going to the first tee," Webb said. "I actually believed that I could shoot something that would give me a chance if the wind got up."

Webb thinks she'll play well at next week's Women's Australian Open, where she'll be trying for her sixth national title.

"Even though it didn't look like it, there was some good feels with the putter," she said. "It's probably the best I've felt for a long time."
