Before she can think of four in a row, Inbee Park has to figure out how to make up an eight-shot deficit at the Women's British Open.

Playing in the strongest wind this week, she had a pair of three-putt bogeys in a round of 1-over 73 that left her closer to the cut line than the lead.

The rough conditions were no problem for Na Yeon Choi. She shot a 6-under 67 — the only player in the windy afternoon to break 70 — and had a one-shot lead over Miki Saiki of Japan. Saiki set the Old Course record for the Women's British Open at 6-under 66 in calmer, morning conditions.

Park is trying to become the first golfer to win four straight professional majors in one year.
