Park Cruises to Historic Win at U.S. Women’s Open
Las Vegas – Bishop Gorman Grad Inbee Park’s dominant season continued on Sunday, as she cruised to a historic 4-stroke victory at the U.S. Women’s Open.
In addition to recording her third consecutive win and her sixth overall this season, the 24-year-old South Korean captured her third straight major victory this year, joining Babe Zaharias as the only women in LPGA history to do so.
Park also became just the fourth person on tour to win three majors in a calendar year. She joined by Zaharias (1950), Mickey Wright (1961) and Pat Bradley (1986).
Park will have a chance to become the first male or female golfer to win four majors in a season at the Women’s British Open at St. Andrew’s in August.
Park closed with a 2-over 74 during her final round, to finish the tournament at 8-under-par 280 and collect her fourth career major victory. Park also won the 2008 U.S. Women’s Open to go along with her three majors this season.
