Can Inbee go 4 for 4?
Playing For History
By mustang6560 on 7/30/13
The fact Inbee Park could make history at the historic Old Course at St. Andrews is not lost on Bob Harig.
The Old Course is where it all began, where many believe the game's origins took their root. If not, then the place is certainly golf's spiritual home, with a huge link to its history.If the pressure of winning an unprecedented fourth major championship in a row isn't enough, Mechelle Voepel notes that Inbee is also carrying the weight of an entire golfing nation on her shoulders as she plays for history.
"Obviously, we are very proud to represent South Korea on the world level," Park said of herself and other athletes. "If I'm able to put a Korean name on such an historical trophy -- putting my name into the history of golf -- I mean, all of Korea is watching me, and they are very proud of me. Not many people get this kind of opportunity, and I'm the lucky one."I am genuinely excited about the Women's British Open. Like the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, watching a major (men or women) at the Old Course adds an extra level of excitement. And come Sunday, if Inbee has a chance to win, it'll further enhance the experience.

Having just played the Old Course in 35 mph breeze, it will be a challenge for the ladies if the breeze gets up. I am pulling for Ms. Park to finish the deal. She's got game.

Inbee seems to play with fantastic control. If the course is set up with reasonable distance I see no reason why she can't win. Her putting gives her a tremendous advantage. BKuehn has it right. The weather can be a great equalizer. Dependent on whether she plays early/late or late early it's just the luck of the draw.
i have no idea why every golf article written right now is not about her potentially winning the Grand Slam. she's already made history, but this would put her in the upper echelon if she can win here. even if she never wins again, she'll be in all of the history books.
