Golf is as much a religion to many men in Australia as it is anywhere else. They disappear in a weekly pilgrimage to their local courses each weekend to show their reverence, reflect, pray and perhaps hurl the odd club into the water hazard or abuse the ball. Courses litter the Australian landscape like divots in the fairways, and the warm, sunny climate leaves few of them empty.

Karrie Webb has perched herself atop the women´s world rankings and recently won her first major title. In a recent tournament on the Ladies Professional Golf Association tour, Australian women finished first, second and third — and Webb wasn´t even among them.
