She already is thinking ahead, mostly to make sure her longtime Aussie swing coach, Kelvin Haller, can make it to Florida. He was paralyzed long ago, and Webb said it will be "quite a process to get him over."
As for the person who presents her? Considering it has to be a current member in the Hall of Fame, don't rule out another famous Australian.
"I think it would be pretty cool that I grew up looking up to Greg Norman," Webb said.
Webb won a junior tournament in Australia as a 17-year-old, and among the rewards was spending a week with Norman in his Florida home and following his workout and practice routine.
"I couldn't even believe I was meeting Greg Norman and staying at his house," she said. "To have him present would be pretty special. But we'll see what happens. I don't even know what date it is next year, if Greg is going to be around or anything like that."
