SOUTHAMPTON, New York (AFP) – World number one Park In-Bee won the US Women's Open on Sunday, grabbing a slice of LPGA history with her third straight major triumph in 2013.
Park's final-round 74 gave her a four-shot lead over I.K. Kim. She joined US sporting legend Babe Zaharias as the only women to win the first three majors in a season. Zaharias won all three in 1950.
South Korean superstar Park became the first LPGA player to win the first three majors of a year in which at least four tournaments were designated majors.
