Inbee Park dominated the field to win her second U.S. Women’s Open title and officially became the first female in the modern era to win the season’s first three major tournaments.
The world’s No.1 player finished 8-under overall to win by four strokes over fellow countrywoman, I.K. Kim.
This being the first year that a fifth major tournament has been added, question now is if Park wins the Ricoh Women’s British Open in August, does that constitute as a Grand Slam? Or will she have to win the Women’s British Open and the newly added Evian Masters in September?
Park was asked and responded to Golf.com by saying, “I won Evian last year. It wasn’t a major then, but, yes, I still think it is a Grand Slam. Four out of five is still big.”
Not to make things difficult but a Grand Slam to me means winning EVERY major. Shame that this is the year a 5th was added but if she wants that title without and asterisk after it, then she’s going to have to continue dominating!
Bill Haas Wins AT&T National at Congressional
Haas fired a 5-under-par 66 on the final day to finish 12-under overall and three-shots better than second place finisher, Roberto Castro.
Six different players had a share of the lead at some point on the final day until Haas rolled in a 10-foot birdie putt on No. 8 for his first of three straight birdies. Two more on the 14th and 16th sealed the deal.
Quietly consistent, Haas has won at least one PGA Tour event in each of the last four years, joining only Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose.
