Youngest, Fastest LPGA Slam

Australia's Karrie Webb made history in women's golf on Sunday by becoming the youngest player to complete a career Grand Slam after another convincing win in a major, the McDonald's LPGA Championship.

No one ever won a career Grand Slam as quickly as Webb, nor made it look so easy.

Three ahead at the start of the day at the DuPont Country Club, Webb shot a two-under 69 for a 14-under-par 270 to win the $225,000 prize by two shots from American Laura Diaz.

Wiping away a tear after winning.

Diaz mounted a challenge on the homeward stretch with four birdies in a row from the ninth in a 68.

"It's very overwhelming," Webb said. "It happened so quickly. This is the dream of all dreams. One day, it will sink in, but right now I'm at a loss for words."

For 26-year-old Webb, it was her fifth win in the last eight majors and was the perfect follow-up to an eight-shot successful defense of her U.S. Open title at North Carolina just three weeks ago.

Webb had previously won the other two events which make up the women's golf Grand Slam, the Du Maurier Classic, in 1999, and the Nabisco Championship, last year.

She is the fifth woman to win the LPGA's four majors — the U.S. Open, the British Women's Open, Nabisco Championship and the LPGA Championship.

Tiger Woods is the youngest player to complete a golfing slam, doing it last year at St. Andrews when he was 24. But no one has won all four in such a short time. It took Webb only eight majors to complete the Grand Slam — Woods went 15 majors between the first and final leg.
