Webb, 47, is a 41-time LPGA Tour winner and seven-time major champion.
The highlight of her career came in 2002 when she completed the Super Career Grand Slam at the Women's British Open.
Webb, a World Golf Hall of Famer, is teeing it up in the Australian Open in Melbourne this week at both Victoria Golf Club and Kingston Heath Golf Club, a tournament that for the first time sees male and female golfers play on the same course at the same time for equal prize money.
The tournament will also feature an inspiring All Abilities Championship.
While the men and women will not compete in the same tournament or play in the same groups, the move is certainly a step in the right direction for the historic tournament that was first established for the men in 1904. The women's tournament was established in 1974.
The DP World Tour is co-sanctioning the men's tournament for the first time in the event's long-standing history alongside the PGA of Australasia and OneAsia Tour this week, while the WPGA Tour of Australasia and LPGA Tour is hosting the women's tournament.
But back to Webb, and she could not hide her delight at revealing she beat last week's Australian PGA champion and World No.3 in the men's game, Smith, a couple of weeks before he went on to win The Open Championship at St Andrews in July.
She also got a very expensive bottle of wine out of it, too.
Webb has won the Women's Australian Open a record five times, and despite now coming to the end of her golf career, she is not ruling out a historic sixth win in the tournament this week.
Very humbled to have my name along side so many greats of Australian Sport!! https://t.co/MlN1xU016d— Karrie Webb AO (@Karrie_Webb) October 13, 2022
