Seon Hwa Lee beats Karrie Webb in a playoff

South Korean Seon Hwa Lee took advantage of a monumental collapse by Sophie Gustafson to win the LPGA Ginn Tribute with a playoff victory over Australian Karrie Webb.

Lee hardly seemed positioned for her third career title entering the round, trailing overnight leader Gustafson of Sweden by nine shots.

Gustafson, who was six shots in front of Webb at the start of play, completely fell apart.

The Swede had five bogeys and two double bogeys over her final 15 holes and finished at seven-over-par 79, tying for fourth at 11-under 277.

Lee made the most of her chance. She carded a 67 for a 14-under total of 274 and beat Hall of Famer Webb at the first playoff hole to claim the first prize of 390,000 dollars.

Webb had forced the playoff with a birdie at the par-four 18th, finishing the day with a 70 that included four birdies and two bogeys.

At the first hole of sudden death, Lee two-putted from about 45 feet for par, then watched Webb miss a three-footer. Lee won her first LPGA event since the 2007 Match Play Championship.

She posted the best round of the day and was consistent throughout with just one bogey against her six birdies. She took the lead with a birdie at the last before Webb matched her moments later.

Gustafson, meanwhile, endured a disastrous round. The 34-year-old started well with birdies at the first and third, but then began to spray shots in every direction.

From the fourth to the 15th she had four bogeys and two double-bogeys.

"Nothing was working for me today," Gustafson said. "I then began pressing and it got worse. I ended up dropping shots instead of making birdies."

Sweden's Annika Sorenstam was the tournament host, but never mounted a serious challenge for a fourth victory of the year. She closed with a 71 to finish at 4-under.
