Inkster, Webb lose in 2nd-round massacres

GLADSTONE, N.J. -- LPGA veterans Juli Inkster and Karrie Webb, who both looked in fine form Thursday after winning their respective first-round matches against Suzann Pettersen and Eunjung Yi in the Sybase Match Play Championship, were mercilessly cut down Friday by players several years their junior. Webb ran into match-play buzz saw and LPGA Tour rookie Amanda Blumenherst, who never gave the Australian Hall-of-Famer a chance. Blumenherst, the 2008 U.S. Women's Amateur champion, two-time victorious Curtis Cup player and three-time National Collegiate Player of the Year, carded six birdies in 12 holes to walk away with a 7&6 win. Inkster faced an equally fierce opponent in 21-year-old Korean Amy Yang, who managed seven birdies in 12 hole to also win 7&6.
