Australian Karrie Webb displayed a decent performance in the Evian Masters 2012, as she shot an overall 273 to finish tied for the second position along with American Stacy Lewis.
Webb was not so thrilled about the final results, but had a sigh of relief at the end of the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) tournament as she was able to finish inside the top five.

Speaking to the media about her performance in France, the 37-year-old LPGA titan said that she is not unhappy with the way she played each round, but she realises she could have done a lot better to stay ahead
of her nearest rivals.
“I shot 67 today, so I can't really complain. I think Inbee shot 66. She played really, really well. Obviously you want to win, but just to be in contention and perform well under pressure, just to feel what
it's like to be in contention, is good. I gave myself the chance,” the veteran star said.
“I didn't have a very comfortable carry out. I had my 5-wood. I knew that Inbee had gotten 16, so I knew had to go for it and try and make there”.
