Kellogg-Keebler Classic
Aurora, Illinois
June 4-6, 2004
Webb wins her 30th LPGA title
Karrie Webb won her 30th LPGA title at the Kellogg-Keebler Classic by five shots from the runner-up trio of Annika Sorenstam, Jeong Jang and Siew-Ai Lim. Webb's bogey-free, 5 under par round of 67 on Sunday gave her a 16-under-par total of 200. She entered the final round at 11-under-par and faced a charge from Sorenstam, who was four shots back. In the end, Sorenstam's four birdies on the back nine gave her a final-round 68 to finish at 11-under-par, but it was not enough to catch Webb. Lim posted a career-low 66 in the final round to join Sorenstam and Jang in the tie for second, her career-best finish.

With this win, Karrie Webb became only the 17th player in LPGA history to win 30 Tour events.

Jim Thorpe won his eighth Champions Tour title and his first of 2004 despite taking a double bogey on the final hole of the Farmers Charity Classic. His 6 under par final round of 66 gave him a 203 total for a one shot victory over Fred Gibson who also finished with a 66. Three players finished a shot further back tied for third place. Gil Morgan (65), whose earnings here took him over $1million for 2004, Dave Stockton (66) and Bob Gilder (71) who started the day as co-leader with Andy Bean. Bean had to withdraw after passing out before the start of play. He was rushed to hospital as a result of an allergic reaction to his breakfast and although he returned to the course after a couple of hours, decided not to compete.

Thorpe's earnings this week take him past the career $10million mark, the 15th player on the Champions Tour to reach that milestone.
