Woods, Bregman lead Australian Ladies Masters; defending champ Webb disqualified

GOLD COAST, Australia - Eight-time winner and defending champion Karrie Webb was disqualified from the Australian Ladies Masters on Friday for signing an incorrect scorecard after the second round.

American Cheyenne Woods, niece of Tiger Woods, and South African Stacey Lee Bregman both followed first round 69s with six-under second rounds of 67 to lead the European and Australian tour event by a shot at 10-under 136.

Webb signed for a second-straight 1-over 74 which would have made the cut. She quickly notified officials she had made an error, signing for par on the 12th when she had made bogey.

Ladies European Tour tournament director Fraser Munro said "it was quite clear she signed for an incorrect scorecard. She was obviously disappointed."

"She needs to verify all her 18 hole scores," Munro said. "That's her duty. She's not properly checked her scorecard and left the recording area."

Woods, bidding for her first professional victory, had an eagle, a bogey and five birdies in her second round 67 at the par-73, 6,034 metres (6,577 yards) Royal Pines Resort. After a three-putt bogey on her ninth hole Woods, who started at the 10th, sank a 7-iron from the fairway for eagle at the par-4 first.

Bregman had six birdies on an unblemished scorecard to share the lead by a shot from England's Trish Johnson with Sweden's Camilla Lennarth, formerly of the University of Alabama, a further shot behind.

"It was a great day today," Woods said. "I played pretty steady throughout the entire round.

"My putter was working really well for me and I was hitting the ball well so, like I said, it was just a steady day.

"The highlight was definitely my No. 10, holing from the fairway."

Bregman played almost her entire round without an 8-iron after breaking the club against a tree on the first hole.

"I had quite a few shots which needed an 8-iron but I just had to improvise," she said. "I just had to grip down on a 7-iron or hit a hard 9-iron."
