Karrie Webb Rips Lack of Scoreboards at Ladies Scottish Open

Karrie Webb was pretty much the wire to wire leader at the Ladies Scottish Open this week. Right up until the final three holes, that is.

 
Webb was at 7-under, and one up with three holes to play, but a double bogey on 16, followed by a bogey on 17 dropped her from the lead, and two back of eventual winner Mi Hyang Lee, who was in the clubhouse at 6-under.

A birdie on 18 wasn’t enough to make up for the two-hole meltdown, as the Aussie finished one shot back at 5-under.

Afterwards, a frustrated Webb didn’t realize she needed an eagle to get into a playoff, and blamed the confusion on the lack of scoreboards set up at Dundonald.

 
“I just had an in-between number unfortunately. I would have liked to have just hit a hard 8-iron but I couldn’t count on it carrying that front. But no leaderboard on the last, so I didn’t know I had to make that,” said Webb.

When asked to clarify the scoreboard comment, Webb continued, “Well, there was no leaderboard. So I don’t know how anyone would know. I just assumed when I made my putt that it wasn’t a huge cheer, so I assumed it wasn’t to tie. So yeah, it’s pretty bad to not have a leaderboard on the last. WELL, that’s the first time I’ve ever been — that hasn’t had a leaderboard on 18.”
