Karrie Webb rallied to win the LPGA Founders Cup – her second consecutive win on the LPGA Tour. A winner just three weeks ago in Singapore, the 36 year old earned $200,000 for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and Japan relief efforts in the charity event at Wildfire Golf Club.

Kelvin Haller, Webb’s longtime coach back in Ayr, Australia, is a quadriplegic. He was paralyzed in an accident 20 years ago. “That’s why I’ve been associated with them [Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation]. It’s near and dear to my heart,” Webb said. “I think they’ll understand that I’m splitting the $200,000 between them and the relief efforts in Japan. … Japan, the fans, the people and many businesses over there have supported me throughout my entire career. It’s just the least that I could do.”

Congratulations Karrie Webb, on a big win and a big heart!
