Park In-bee leaves LPGA field behind


Golfer Park In-bee became the first Korean winner of the LPGA Tour’s Player of the Year award. Park won six LPGA Tour titles this season, including three consecutive major titles - the Nabisco, the Wegmans and the U.S. Open.

Park became the first golfer since 1946 to win three straight major tournaments. She had been going for a “calendar Grand Slam” by winning four major tournaments in one year, but she failed in August at the Ricoh Women’s British Open, where she finished tied for 42nd.

The 25-year-old was also the Tour’s top money earner for the second consecutive year, winning $2.45 million this season.
