Inbee Park Wins 2013 Kraft Nabisco Championship

“I’ve seen Inbee do this before. I played with her at Evian last year when she had 22 or 23 putts in the final round. When she rolls it, you can’t beat her. She’s the best putter on tour.” – Stacy Lewis

I can’t say it any better than world #1 Stacy Lewis. Inbee was rolling it this weekend, dropping in long range putts that make you just smile and shake your head at the tremendous ability of the new golf superstar on the block. Inbee Park won her 5th LPGA tournament and 2nd Major at the 2013 Kraft Nabisco Championship. Countywoman So Yeon Ryu rode a great final round into 2nd place. Both Pornanong Phatlum and Lizette Salas, who both looked to challenge at the beginning of the round, had less than spectacular performances unfortunately. However, both players should be proud of their overall performances. I don’t think either of them was going to catch Inbee anyway, especially the way she was putting. On a personal note, I was happy with the performances of Se Ri Pak, Michelle Wie and both Phatlum and Moriya Jutanugarn. Moriya is doing a great job padding her rookie of the year lead, while Michelle really just needed a decent tournament, both making the cut and earning some dough. For Se Ri, I really wish she would have been in contention as one doesn’t know how many more chances she will have at completing the career Grand Slam.
