Only Korean legend Se Ri Pak has more LPGA wins than Park, but Park is close to her childhood hero with 21, four behind Pak.
Inbee leads Pak when it comes to major championships, she is two in front with seven victories, including this Championship which she won in 2015 at Turnberry. In 2013, Park won three of the women’s majors, one of four women to do so along with Babe Didrikson Zaharias (1950), Mickey Wright (1961) and Pat Bradley (1986).
Park made history in 2016, when she won a gold medal in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
As good as her major wins are, she revelled in her achievement: “This is definitely one of the special moments in my golfing career and in my whole life,” she said.
