Laura Davies wins ANZ Ladies Masters again

England's Laura Davies won her third ANZ Ladies Masters title Sunday, taking advantage of Karrie Webb's final-hole bogey for a one-stroke victory.

Davies holed a 12-foot par putt on No. 18 for a 4-under 68 and a 13-under 203 total in the rain-shortened tournament. Davies also won in 1993 and 1994 and has 65 international victories.

Webb, second the last two years after winning the Royal Pines event four consecutive years, shot a 70 to tie for second with fellow Australian Rebecca Stevenson (68).

"I played a little loose on the back nine. I wasn't hitting my irons as close as I would have liked," said Webb, who lost a playoff to Annika Sorenstam last year. "But Laura made some good putts when she needed to and played great."

Webb's drive on the 18th hole went into deep rough and she had to pitch out to the fairway. After an approach to about 30 feet, she two-putted for bogey moments before Davies calmly rolled her par putt into the center of the cup.

Davies punched her hands into the air even before the ball fell, and wrapped her arms around caddie Terry Munday.

Young Mexican star Lorena Ochoa closed with a 68 to finish fourth at 11-under 205. Denmark's Iben Tinning (66) and Australia's Rachel Teske (67) followed at 10 under.
