MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Seven-time LPGA Major winner Karrie Webb has been nominated to captain Australia’s golfers at the Paris 2024 Olympics.
Golf Australia said on Friday that Webb would replace 1991 British Open winner Ian-Baker Finch, who led Australia at the sport’s inaugural event in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and again in Tokyo in 2020.
Webb’s name will be submitted to the Australian Olympic Committee for approval.
