Park looks to make Tour history

-A A +A

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — The cheering jarred Inbee Park from her sleep.
The 10-year-old went downstairs to find her father in front of the television in the middle of the night in Seoul as he watched Se Ri Pak become the first South Korean to win the U.S. Women’s Open.
Within a week, Park wrapped her hands around a golf club for the first time, not knowing that it one day would lead her to the brink of history.
“They were doing replays every day on TV, her hitting the shot out of the water with her socks off,” Park said. “It was cool to see her white feet. I didn’t know what was happening, but I thought it was really cool to be seen playing golf and being on TV. Everybody was talking about it. Golf looked really fun.”
Fifteen years later, everyone is talking about Inbee Park.
A win this week in the Women’s British Open — at St. Andrews, of all places — would make the 25-year-old Park the first golfer to win four majors in one season.
Arnold Palmer created the modern Grand Slam, winning four professional majors in one year.
Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam got halfway home before their pursuit of it ended. No one has ever had a better shot at it than Park, who has won three LPGA Tour majors this year.
