To say that Inbee Park is talented and hard-working would be an understatement. Over the course of her career, the golfer has won seven major championships, with three major wins in a row in the 2013 season. This makes her the fourth female golfer to win three major titles in one year. She is also the youngest player to win the U.S. Women’s Open and the second player to win the title three years in a row. The first was Annika Sorenstam – a retired Swedish professional golfer.
Inbee has set new records for herself throughout her career. She was the seventh player to win a career Grand Slam by winning four different majors this calendar year. She also won the first Olympic gold medal since 1900 in the women’s singles tournament in 2016.
