Australian Katherine Hull cruised to a five stroke victory at the ANZ Ladies Masters at RACV Royal Pines Resort in Australia on Sunday and confirmed her status as one of her country's fastest rising sporting stars. Hull, who began the final round with a three stroke lead over compatriot Tamie Durdin, recorded a winning total of 16-under-par 272.

The 26-year old LPGA Tour regular fired rounds of 69, 67, 68 and 68 and became only the third Australian to win the tournament in its 20-year history, after Jane Crafter and Karrie Webb. “If anyone would have said to me that I would shoot four rounds in the 60s I would have been absolutely ecstatic,” said Hull, who collected a winner's cheque for $90,000.

2008 - LISA HALL

England’s Lisa Hall fired a six-under-par 66 on Sunday's third and final round to take a one stroke victory from second round leader Hyun Ju Shin to post a winning total of 13-under-par 203.

Hall, playing in the penultimate three-ball, had posted her score as Shin stood on the 18th tee tied for the lead on 13 under.

Hoping for a play-off, Hall watched from the back of the 18th green as Shin, from South Korea, putted.

Shin had a 25 foot birdie chance for the title, but left it four feet short, and then missed the second putt, effectively handing Hall the title.



2007/2005/2001/2000/1999 & 1998 - KARRIE WEBB

Karrie Webb made it six out of ten at the ANZ Ladies Masters when she added a final round of 68 to win by two over Shin Ji Yai of Korea.

Her 62 on Saturday and opening nine of 31 in the final round had her at 21 under and it essentially became a race for second as the darling of Royal Pines took absolute control.



The 16-year-old Korean teenager Amy Yang claimed victory in dramatic style at Royal Pines Resort with rounds of 69, 66, 70, 70, for a total of 13-under-par 275.

The youngster led the tournament for the final three rounds and eventually won in a gripping one-hole play-off against the 22-year-old American Catherine Cartwright, who recorded rounds of 70, 67, 70, 68, also for a 13-under-par 275 total.

With her victory the talented youngster became the first amateur to win a Ladies European Tour event in 22 years, since Gillian Stewart won the European Open at the Belfry in 1984. In only her second appearance in a professional golf event, Yang outplayed some of the best female players in the world and also became the only amateur to ever win a professional ladies event in Australia.

2004/2002 & 1995 - ANNIKA SORENSTAM

Current world number 1 Annika Sorenstam added a third Masters title to her 1995 and 2002 success by winning the 2004 Masters in style with a weeked total of 130 (-14) with scores of 65 & 65.


2003/1994 & 1993 - LAURA DAVIES

One of the greatest women players of all time and winner of more than 50 Tournaments on the US and European Tours, including the British and US Opens, Davies won the Masters back to back in 1993/1994 and again in 2003. Laura became the second 3 time winner of the event in 2003 with a clutch par putt from 10 feet on the final hole to edge out Queensland's Karrie Webb and Rebecca Stevenson.



Canadian Gail Graham recorded her second professional victory with at one shot win over Karrie Webb at Royal Pines in 1997 when the Ladies Masters was played as a joint ALPG/USLPGA event. To date the only single time winner of the event.


1992 & 1996 - JANE CRAFTER

A great player and ambassador for golf, Jane Crafter won in 1992 and 1996. Her second victory was one of the most thrilling in Masters History. With her in the final group were Englands Laura Davies and Sweden's Liselotte Neumann and all three had eagle putts at the 18th to overhaul Geddes who had finished at 18 under. While the other two missed, Crafter holed a putt from 14 metres that never looked in doubt.


1990 & 1991 - JANE GEDDES

Jane Geddes, former US Open and LPGA Champion, was the winner of the first two Ladies Masters contested at Palm Meadows in 1990/1991. Geddes was also runner up to Jane Crafter in 1996 and Annika Sorenstam in 1995.
