Karrie Webb Update

An unusual development in the "no coverage for Karrie Webb on free-to-air digital tv" saga (see my Karrie, Women and Sport post). Days after the 2010 ANZ Ladies Masters Karrie's win suddenly hit the news.

This could have occurred for a number of reasons:

1. The networks forgot about the tournament, then suddenly remembered days later.
2. The Pro Shop's coverage (One HD) sparked a resurgence of interest in womens' golf.
3. Karrie has been recently been "controversially" discussed as Australia's greatest sporting export.

Wins and Awards - Centenary medal, Golfing Hall of fame (the youngest inductee at age 30), Order of Australia - 49 professional wins. (36 LPGA tournaments including 2 U.S. Women's Open and 3 British Open wins, 8 or 11 ALPG tournaments, depending on the reporting, Japan LPGA 2)

4. A representative from digital free-to-air TV read my post. (Unlikely, but possible).

Whatever the reason, it's great to see Karrie in the news again, and tomorrow (money day) we will find out if she add another win to the tally by triumphing at the Handa Australian Women's Open on Sunday.
