“The 2007 MFS Australian Women’s Open is about skill, talent and glamour and with our number one star Karrie joining fellow Australian and number two player in Australia, Nikki Campbell as well as international golfing favourites Laura Davies and Natalie Gulbis we are well on track to deliver an outstanding event”.

Bob Tuohy commented: “Karrie has been a key figure in the tremendous success the ANZ Ladies Masters has experienced over the years and it is great to have her confirm her involvement again in 2007.

“Coming on top of the recent announcements involving the inclusion of Cristie Kerr and Natalie Gulbis in the field gives every indication that next year’s event will be one of the best ever.”

“It’s a great thrill to once again be playing in Australia at two such prestigious events,” said Webb today. “To be able to return to Australia in 2007 after such an improved season on the LPGA Tour is something that I am looking forward to very much.”

2006 has seen also seen a huge leap by Webb in the recently introduced Rolex Women’s World Golf rankings. She has moved into the number three position in the world after starting the year well outside the top ten.
