PHOENIX — Karrie Webb rallied to win the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup for her second straight victory, shooting a 6-under 66 on Sunday to beat Brittany Lincicome and Paula Creamer by a stroke.

Webb won when Lincicome bogeyed the final hole, missing a 10-foot par putt.

“I didn’t think I’d be sitting here today talking about winning,” Webb said. “But now that I am, It’s such a great honor to win this tournament.”

The 36-year-old Hall of Famer, the winner three weeks ago in Singapore, earned $200,000 for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and Japan relief efforts in the charity event at Wildfire Golf Club.

The Reeve Foundation supports spinal cord research, treatment and rehabilitation for those living with paralysis. Kelvin Haller, Webb’s longtime coach back in Ayr, Australia, is a quadriplegic. He was paralyzed in an accident 20 years ago.
