The 39-year-old Australian closed with a nine-under 63 to finish with a 19-under 269 and win this event for the second time in three years.

"I thought I would be in a playoff not standing here the winner," said Webb on Sunday.

This was Webb's second win of the year, and 41st of her career on the LPGA Tour.

Last year's winner Stacy Lewis earned a share of second at 18-under by shooting a six-under 66 at the Wildlife Golf Club.

Lewis tied with Amy Yang (67), Azahara Munoz (67), Mirim Lee (69) and New Zealand's Lydia Ko (70).

Lee led after the first two rounds, while Ko was atop the leaderboard entering the final round.

The 23-year-old Lee was looking for the biggest win of her career after winning three times on the South Korean women's tour.

Thailand's Pornanong Phatlum (66), Jessica Korda (70) and Ryu So-Yeon (68) tied for seventh place at 17-under 271.
