Park wants to make history with 4th straight major

Women's golf phenom Inbee Park is on track for an unprecedented career Grand Slam, with a chance to become the first player to go four for four in majors at next month's Women's British Open.

''Whether I do it or not, I'm just a very lucky person,'' Park said Sunday in the aftermath of her U.S. Women's Open win, the second time she has conquered that particular tournament.

Park's otherworldly calmness on the course at windy Sebonack was a big part of the reason she cruised to her four-shot victory, the South Korean never seeming to show anger or overt displays of emotions on the course.

''I think it's because I feel the happiest when I'm at the golf course,'' Park said. ''I feel calm when I'm on the golf course. I think I'm just a much better person when I'm on the golf course.

"Yeah, outside the golf course, I feel the pressure and I feel what everybody else is feeling. But on the golf course, it's just the golf ball and clubs. And when I have that, it just puts a lot of pressure off of me.''

St. Andrews will be the destination for her shot at history, the last, and pre-Park, only player to win the year's first three majors was Babe Zaharias in 1950, so no matter what happens in Scotland, the 24-year-old Korean 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,'' observed Annika Sorenstam, the last player to try to win the year's first three majors in 2005.

The Swede secured both the Kraft Nabisco Championship and the LPGA Championship that year but was unable to even come close at the U.S Women's Open that followed, tying for 23rd.

''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.''
