Park will chase 4th straight major at British Open
Question of the Day
“You don’t even know if she has a pulse out there half the time,” said Paula Creamer, who tied for fourth at Sebonack. “Doesn’t matter if it’s a good shot or a bad shot, I think I’ve seen her actually smile maybe 10 times.”
The only player to win the year’s first three majors had been Babe Zaharias in 1950 _ and there were only three then.
“After Annika retired I didn’t think anybody would ever do it,” said Angela Stanford, another of the players who tied for fourth, nine strokes behind Park.
After the Women's British Open on Aug. 1-4, The Evian Championship is Sept. 12-15 for the year’s fifth and final major. If Park can win at St. Andrews, everyone will need to decide whether a new term is required for winning all the majors.
Park recalled when there were other players she thought she couldn’t beat. She kept working at her game and proved herself wrong. So she figures there’s no reason her rivals won’t do the same now.
“I know I have a long ways to go to go somewhere like what Yani (Tseng) or what Annika and what Lorena (Ochoa) have achieved,” Park said.
She added: “I still have a lot of things to learn.”
No matter what happens in Scotland, Park will always be the first player in the modern era to win the year’s first three majors.
“We might not see that again for another 60 years,” said Sorenstam, now an analyst for Golf Channel.
Park and Beecher didn’t talk about the record book until after she hit her third shot on the par-5 18th hole Sunday.
“I just said to her, `Mate, you’re just about to join history, enjoy this walk,’” the Australian recalled.
And Park actually grinned.
