Monica Webb claims 2009 San Diego Classic for second straight win

Monica Webb (USA) captured the season-opening 2009 WPBA San Diego Classic for her second title in a row.

In the final she edged 2004 world champion Ga Young Kim (South Korea) 7-5. Jeanette Lee (USA) and Gerda Hofstätter (Austria), finished joint third.

Defending champion Allison Fisher (England) lost 9-8 to Hofstätter in the final 16.

This was Webb's second title in a row on the Classic Tour, having taken her very first win in the 2008 WPBA Championship. She is also unbeaten in these two events.

In the rankings all players start off with zero points. Therefore Webb will be the first leader in the rankings. She ended up in fourth place last season.

The event took place from 1-5 April at the Viejas Casino, Alpine, California, USA. It was the first of six events on the 2009 Classic Tour. Next up is the Great Lakes Classic, at the Blue Chip Casino, Michigan City, Indiana, 17-21 June 2009.
