Karrie Webb

Pro golfer


Karrie took up golf as an eight-year-old. She turned pro in 1994, then defied a broken wrist to make the LPGA tour. She has been in the world's top five ever since. She has had a highly successful run on the LPGA tour, winning six majors. She is generally regarded as the greatest Australian Golfer (male or female).

Karrie WebbKarrie is the first to win the super slam, is the youngest to win all four majors and the only rookie to have won $1,000,000 in a season. She was outed in a book by Melbourne golf writer Charles Happell. In a biography called simply Karrie Webb he writes: "Karrie's constant companion over the past four years has been Kelly Robbins". The book also details Karrie's 1996 break-up with her former fiancé, Todd Haller.

As the Australian wrote: Happell "has lifted the lid on what has been an open secret on the US Ladies Professional Golfers Association tour: that Webb has been involved in a four-year lesbian relationship with Kelly Robbins, an American golfer". Karrie, who splits her time between homes in Australia and Florida, is known for being notoriously press-shy.
