Many of the top players in women's golf have won when the LPGA Tour visits Kingsmill.
If Karrie Webb had her way, Dinah Shore would be back on the marquee at the first major championship of the season.
The good news for Karrie Webb is that her name doesn't start with a number.
When Karrie Webb was asked about the all the good young players on the LPGA Tour, the questioner noted that Lydia Ko was 16 and Jessica Korda 21.
Karrie Webb is close friends with founding player Louise Suggs and has a deep appreciation for the 13 women who started the LPGA Tour in 1950.
Paula Creamer sank a 75-foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole against Azahara Munoz to win the HSBC Women's Champions on Sunday for her first LPGA title since the 2010 U.S. Women's Open.
Karrie Webb and Angela Stanford were so close down the stretch Saturday at the HSBC Women's Champions, matching each other birdie for birdie, that Stanford only sees one way to get the advantage in Sunday's final round.
For all the talk of the youth movement in women's golf, Karrie Webb showed on Friday that experienced players can still show up their younger competitors from time to time.
Karrie Webb slipped up several weeks ago at the Australian Ladies Masters when she signed an incorrect scorecard and was disqualified. For a moment at the HSBC Women's Champions on Thursday, she thought she had made a similar mistake.
Karrie Webb won the Women's Australian Open for the fifth time Sunday, shooting a 4-under 68 in the final round to beat Chella Choi by one stroke.
Eight-time winner and defending champion Karrie Webb was disqualified from the Australian Ladies Masters on Friday for signing an incorrect scorecard after the second round.
Matt Kuchar was in a good spot Sunday at the Memorial. He had his first multiple-win season, and an audience with tournament host Jack Nicklaus.
Yani Tseng felt the pressure of being the No. 1 player last season, plus trying to defend 11 tournament titles around the world.
Alarm bells went off when the best golfers no longer were Americans, whether the measure was a ranking or simply who kept winning the majors.
Top-ranked Yani Tseng and defending champion Karrie Webb are too busy trying to win tournaments to get caught up in actually getting paid in the LPGA Founders Cup.
"My opinion, I have voiced it a few times in the last year or so, is that I think Dinah Shore's name should come back onto the event just to keep that identity," said Webb, a two-time winner in the event that starts Thursday at Mission Hills.
"I feel like my game is as good as it's ever been as far as having the ability to win majors," Webb said. "Obviously, starting the year off as well as I have, it gives me that little bit of confidence going into this week that if I get things going, hopefully, down the stretch on Sunday, I'll have a shot to win."
