Untitled Document

LPGA.com counts down to the end of 2011 with the LPGA Tour's 11 top stories of the year. Join us as we look back at the year's most memorable milestones. Read about three LPGA players who all notched two 2011 wins in Story No. 9.

Webb, Pettersen and Lincicome Each Notch Two Wins


While Yani Tseng was dominating the LPGA with seven tour wins this season, three top-ranked players also each notched two wins on the 2011 LPGA Tour.

Australia's Karrie Webb, No. 18 in the Rolex Rankings, won early back-to-back wins in February and March at the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore and at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup in Phoenix.

Second-ranked Suzann Pettersen of Norway won the Sybase Match Play Championship in mid-May in New Jersey, and added a second title in August at the Safeway Classic presented by Coca-Cola in Oregon. Pettersen was in contention numerous times in 2010, posting six runner-up finishes last year, but this season, she was able to make a solid move on the heels of Tseng. In addition to her two wins this year, the Norwegian posted 11 top-10 finishes.

Brittany Lincicome, who finished the season No. 11 in the Rolex Rankings, was a co-runner-up with Paula Creamer in March at the RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup. But the big hitter from Florida won in June at the ShopRite LPGA Classic in New Jersey, and won again in late August north of the border at the CN Canadian Women's Open.

Other than Tseng, Webb, Pettersen and Lincicome were the only three players to win more than once on the 2011 LPGA Tour. Conversely, normal frontrunners Creamer, Cristie Kerr and Michelle Wie came up empty handed this year after winning in 2010.
