Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 157
RORY McIlroy has been nothing short of remarkable over the past three seasons. Unquestionably the No.1 golfer in the game, his world-leading seven tournament victories during that span include two majors, taking his tally of big ones to four. The only player to come close to matching the 26-year-old since the start of 2013 is Jordan Spieth, whose five wins have all come in that period. He, too, has two majors. We say “matching” because to size the pair’s achievements up alongside the enormity of what a certain South Korean is achieving is almost mediocre. Inbee Park is accomplishing things that some of the game’s greatest players could barely have dreamed up. Park isn’t matching the feats of others. She’s rewriting history, with the latest chapter her gripping chase-down success at the Women’s British Open. At 27, Park has already secured seven major titles. Seven. Only two other players can boast that achievement – Mickey Wright and Tiger Woods. Reasonable company. Of her last 14 major starts, six of them have delivered the ultimate success. But it was the manner in which she claimed the Open that makes it, perhaps, the most extraordinary of her seven majors. She had no right to win at Turnberry, with young compatriot Ko Jin-young staring down a fairytale of her own after leading Park by three shots in the final round of her major debut. But like all champions, by the time Park knocked in that final putt to seal a three-shot win and a course record, she’d made the doubters look foolish.
