Webb elected to LPGA Board

Courtesy: ALPG Australian and ALPG Member Karrie Webb, a World Golf Hall of Fame player, has been elected to the LPGA Board of Directors for a three-year term. Webb has 36 career LPGA triumphs and three season money titles plus two Player of the Year awards. American Allison Fouch was also elected by peers to a director&aposs spot. Australian Michelle Ellis was re-elected as president for a third year and American Kim Hall was elected vice-president in a vote of player directors. “Karrie… brings an international perspective which is critical to the evolution of the LPGA,” LPGA Board of Directors chairman William Susetka said. Webb hopes she can be part of the solution for the LPGA&aposs headaches, saying, “I believe the next couple of years are pivotal in the direction the LPGA is headed. I wanted to be a part of that. The LPGA has provided me with so much opportunity over the 15 years of my career. I felt it was the right time to give something back.” The directors, including seven LPGA players, provide guidance and oversight of LPGA management. Webb and Fouch join Ellis, Hall, Sweden&aposs Helen Alfredsson and Americans Stacy Prammanasudh and Katie Futcher as LPGA player directors.
