Park patient in super slam pursuit
World number one Inbee Park missed out on completing a career super grand slam at the Evian Championships in France on Sunday but is confident she will achieve the feat in future.
Park finished tied for eighth on five-under and 11 shots behind winner Lydia Ko despite carding a three-under 68 in Sunday’s final round.
"I've got a long career ahead, and I will keep knocking on the door," the 27-year-old told Yonhap News Agency.
"I had my best ball-striking round, but I missed short putts whenever I had opportunities. But it's still given me confidence that I can close out the season on a strong note."
The South Korean has already won the ANA Inspiration (2013), Women's PGA Championship (2013, 2014, 2015), US Women's Open (2008, 2013) and Women's British Open (2015) to complete what the LPGA Tour refers to as a career grand slam but needs to win at the Evian Championship, which only became a major in 2013, to complete her a super grand slam.
Park will take a short break for what remains of September before resuming her season at the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia on October 8.
"Things didn't quite go the way I wanted, but I will try to play well over the remaining five to six events,” she said.
"With the Summer Olympics scheduled for next year, I will try to peak in time for that competition."
