10:53 AM ET 06.25 | Inbee Park has five victories on the LPGA Tour in the 2013 season that includes both major championships. The 24-year-old South Korean who played her collegiate golf at the University of Nevada Las Vegas will tee it up at the U.S. Women's Open this week in Southampton and attempt to do something that hasn't been done since Babe Zaharias won three consecutive Majors in 1950. In addition to the two majors in the 2013 season, Inbee Park has also won her first tournament of the year at The Honda LPGA Thailand, The North Texas LPGA Shootout, and last week's Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.

You watch her swing and you would not really think of her as the best player in the world. Her swing just seems a bit awkward

But she hits the ball well, I should add.

I am looking forward to watching her and the rest of the top players on the tour when they hit Edmonton Aug 22 for the CN Open. I've been to a few of the LPGA events and they put on an excellent show.
Hey Rex I'm a creature of habit so I will be taking Tiger to win the Open. Thanks for putting on the pool.

Well you could say that about Arnold Palmer too and he did pretty well.

She's the leader in the clubhouse after shooting 5 under this morning.

One of the things I kind of like about the LPGA is that it's possible for a player to dominate for a period of time. Annika did it for a long while and a couple years ago it was Lorena Ochoa. Look's like it's Park's turn.

Just a reminder for everyone, the betting for "The Open" @ Muirfield will commence at O'early thirty on July 4th. There just seems to be some nice symmetry in opening the betting for the British Open on that day :))

Nice! In that case I'm picking Cornwallis to lose.

Gotta say I think Tiger and Murfield make for a winning combination this year. I have a couple of draft picks I can offer if whale2 wants to trade down.

It's not a question of whether she will win but by how much.

July 10, 2013  07:25 PM ET

She has been amazingly on fire with her putter.
