Karrie Webb’s clubs arrive just in time for Women's British Open


It’s been a tense few days for Australian golfer Karrie Webb, who up until Tuesday afternoon had not received her golf clubs for this week’s Women’s British Open.

Webb would have been forced to play with an incredibly limited preparation after several golf clubs went missing en route from the US.

The seven-time major champion arrived from Chicago on Monday but her luggage – which included her golf clubs – only joined her at Woburn Golf Club on Tuesday afternoon, leaving just one day of practice ahead of Thursday’s first round.

Webb was considering pulling out of the event after ruling out borrowing clubs.

"What would be the point?" she said.

Webb is joined in the Women's British Open by fellow Australians Minjee Lee, Su Oh, Rebecca Artis, Stacey Keating and Sarah Jane Smith.
