Inbee Park Wins Inaugural North Texas LPGA Shootout
(HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA) – Srixon congratulates staffer Inbee Park for her victory at the 2013 North Texas LPGA Shootout. Park cemented her position as the World #1 by securing her third win of the 2013 season. The victory also marks the sixth of her young LPGA career. Unlike her win earlier this month at the Kraft Nabisco, Park had to come from behind to earn the victory.
“Today, coming into the final round, I was two shots back, and I didn't really think about winning so much,” Park said. She needed to make a birdie on the 18th hole to pull out a one-shot victory at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas; shooting a final round 4-under par 67.
Park, the 24-year old South Korean, has taken the LPGA by storm this season, winning three of the seven events she has played in and adding another Top 5 last week at the Lotte Championship. She currently ranks in the Top-5 in nine different categories on the LPGA Tour, including Scoring Average, Birdies, and Money Earned for 2013.
Park currently plays the new Z-STAR with SpinSkin technology, which will be released this August. This victory marks the 27th Professional win worldwide with this model of the Z-STAR and the fourth in only two weeks. Park also plays a XXIO 7 driver, XXIO Forged irons (5-PW) and Cleveland 588 wedges (47°, 51°, 56°). Park wears a Srixon hat, glove and shoes, and carries a Srixon bag.
