Webb has no interest in playing mens event

Former women’s world No.1 Karrie Webb says she has no interest in emulating Annika Sorenstam by playing alongside men.

The current female No.1, Swede Sorenstam teed it up in the US PGA Tour’s Bank of Colonial tournament in Texas two weeks ago, but after making a promising start on the opening day, failed to make the cut.

Speaking to AAP ahead of the LPGA Championship at DuPont Country club in Wilmington, Delaware, Webb said she doesn’t want to get caught up in the media circus that followed Sorenstam’s every move.

"I would hate that sort of attention," said Webb, who had been linked with a possible start in an Australasian PGA Tour event later this year.

As for Sorenstam, she reiterated her previously stated position that there will be no encore.

"Colonial was a one-off opportunity, I enjoyed every minute, but I won't do it again," said Sorenstam. "Now I want to focus on the LPGA and I'd love to win this week."

Not having won yet in 2003, Webb has nonetheless showed signs of a return to form with four top 10 placings in succession, but she was disappointed that flooded fairways prevented practice rounds on Wednesday.

"It has meant a lot of hanging around and I'd rather be out practising," she said. "The course was already playing very long and the rough is longer than usual so more rain is going to make it even tougher."
