Inbee Park
KOR

Inbee had a startling 2012 winning two events, making 23 cuts from 24 tournaments played and recording 10 top 10 finishes, 6 of those being runner up.

 

In 2011 Inbee Park finished tied sixth at the US Women's Open; tied for seventh at the RICOH Women's British Open; tied for 14th at the Wegmans LPGA Championship; tied for 17th at the Evian Masters; tied for 18th at the Kia Classic; tied for 29th at the Kraft Nabisco Championship; tied for 40th at the HSBC Women's Champions; tied for 43rd at the Honda LPGA Thailand. 

 

 

In 2010, Inbee Park's best finish was second at the Kia Classic Presented by J Golf, losing to fellow South Korean Seo Hee-Kyung by 6 stokes. Her other successful tournaments of the year included a third place finish at the ShopRite LPGA Classic and she finished fourth at the P&G NW Arkansas Championship Presented by Walmart. 2010 has been one of Park’s most promising years with numerous top 10 LPGA finishes (11 in total).

In 2009, Park's best finish was a tie for fifth at the Mizuno Classic, where she tied her season-low 66 in the second round; previously carded 66 in the first round of the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic Presented by Kroger; tied for seventh at the Hana Bank KOLON Championship 2009; led the Tour in putting average and greens in regulation putting average.

Inbee Park wrote her name in the history books in 2008 when, at the age of 19 years, 11 months and 17 days she became the youngest-ever winner of the US Women's Open. It was a fantastic moment to land her first LPGA title, and marked her down as yet another of the fantastic young crop of South Korean players making a big impression on the tour.

She turned professional in 2006 and competed on the Duramed Futures Tour, where she recorded 11 top-10 finishes, including a runner-up finish at the CIGNA Chip in For A Cure FUTURES Golf Classic; finished third on the Duramed Futures Tour season-ending money list to earn exempt status for the 2007 LPGA season.

Park accumulated many accolades during her amateur career. She won nine events on the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) circuit and was a five-time Rolex Junior All-American. She was named the 2002 AJGA Rolex Junior Player of the Year, and competed in 25 AJGA events during her career and recorded 18 top-five finishes. She was a semifinalist at the 2003 US Women’s Amateur Championship.
