Title: Park wins playoff to claim LPGA Championship
Description: PITTSFORD, N.Y. — The last time a Grand Slam buzz surrounded a World No. 1 was back in 2005, when Annika Sorenstam headed into the U.S. Women’s Open at Cherry Hills looking to make history. Sorenstam came up short that year, but Inbee Park has earned the chance to pull off the grandest of Grand Slams. Park’s playoff victory at the Wegmans LPGA Championship on Sunday makes her two-for-two in 2013 majors. Any other year she’d be halfway home to the coveted Slam. But this year, it’s harder than ever to accomplish the feat. This year, there are five trophies to collect. “I just love playing in major championships,” said Park, who has won three of them. With The Evian Championship now a major, Park would have to take home trophies in New York, Scotland and France to win the Slam. Park, Incidentally, won last year’s Evian. Prior to Park, only six players had won the first two majors of the LPGA season: Babe Zaharias (1950), Patty Berg (1955, ’57), Mickey Wright (1962), Sandra Haynie (1974), Pat Bradley (1986) and Sorenstam.
