New Rolex World Number 1 Inbee Park.
Rolex Rankings No. 1 Inbee Park showed again why she is currently the player to beat on the LPGA Tour, capturing her third victory of the 2013 season at the inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas.
Park drained a 4-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to fire a 4-under 67 and defeat Spaniard Carlota Ciganda by one stroke for her sixth career LPGA Tour victory.
“Today coming into the final round, I was two shots back, and I didn't really think about winning so much,” Park said. “The front nine I was given a lot of birdie chances out there, and nothing seemed to be going in, so I was a little bit frustrated.
The win in Texas helped Park maintain her hold on the No. 1 spot for a third consecutive week and continued what has been an impressive stretch of golf for Park dating back to last July’s Evian Masters. She has captured five victories in her last 18 starts and always seems to find herself in contention.
The only Aussie in the field, Lindsey Wright had 1 over (72) in her final round to finish 1 over par total, tied 47th. Wright had a triple bogey on the 7th and a bogey on 11th but managed to recover with birdies on 8th, 13th and 14th hole.
