Karrie Webb believes she can be No.1 again

Karrie Webb thinks she again be No. 1 in women's golf.

"If I was to become No. 1 again, that would be my greatest achievement of all," the 31-year-old Webb said Tuesday on the eve of the ANZ Ladies Masters at Royal Pines, where she is the defending champion.

Webb believes the difference between her and top-ranked Annika Sorenstam is mostly mental.

"Annika believes in herself 110 percent," she said. "I'm not quite there on the golf course.

"I'm hitting shots even I can't believe I'm hitting now," she added. "I don't think there's much difference between her and I.

"She hits it further than me now, but I think I've got more shots in my bag than she does," she said. "But she's just so strong mentally and obviously riding a big wave of confidence."

Webb, who was inducted in the World Golf Hall of Fame last year, won four times as a rookie and captured the money title, becoming the first woman to earn more than $1 million in 1996. She has 30 LPGA victories and six majors.

A five-time ANZ Masters champion, Webb is favorite going into the event that is co-sanctioned by the Australian and European women's tours.
