Karrie Webb Series continues in Townsville

The Queensland Women&aposs 72-Hole Stroke Play is underway at Townsville Golf Club and presents an opportunity for many girls to gain a significant share of Karrie Webb Series points. With the bulk of the National Squad currently in New Zealand for the Trans Tasman Cup, a number of players will be looking to capitalise on their absence including Stacey Keating, Bree Arthur and Courtney Massey who are all fancied to claim the honours. Arthur is indeed the defending champion after her three-stroke win from Frances Bondad and Massey last year at North Lakes Resort Golf Club. Kristie Smith is the current Karrie Webb Series leader from Stephanie Na, but both players are on national representative duty in Wellington, along with Clare Choi who currently occupies third spot. If Keating can perform well at Townsville, she will put herself in contention for the inaugural Karrie Webb Series with just two events remaining; the West Australian and the New South Wales Women&aposs 72-Hole Stroke Play.
