Inbee Park Extends Lead After 3rd Round Of 2013 US Women’s Open, Stands 18 Holes From History

Inbee Park (click to enlarge)

Even the legendary Annika Sorenstam admits that after winning the 2005 Kraft Nabisco Championship and LPGA Championship she felt tremendous pressure going for 3 for 3 at the 2005 US Open. It proved too much weight as Annika finished tied for 23rd at 12-over par. If Inbee Park is feeling similar pressure going for an historic Major trifecta she isn’t showing it. On a day when the course conditions beat up the best women’s golfers in the world, only one player was under par. Guess who. Inbee used a 1-under round to push her overall score to 10-under, 4 shots better than 2nd place In Kyung Kim and a whopping 7 shots clear of 3rd place Jodi Ewart Shadoff. The most impressive part of the day for Inbee was her incredible birdie putt on 14, which followed 3 straight bogeys. For a moment it looked like Inbee would let the field back in until she bombed in a long tricky putt on the 14th. She righted the ship with another birdie on 15 and a close out birdie on 18. If the course plays tough again, I can’t see anybody making up enough ground to catch Inbee unless she starts to crumble under the pressure. If I were the USGA, what I might do to add some level of competition on Sunday is move the tees up again and have favorable pin placements. In other words, I’d turn it into a shooting gallery on Sunday so that some players behind Inbee can post some low scores. Of course, that could also give Inbee a chance to go low. Still, I think that’s the only way short of an Inbee collapse for anybody to catch her. As it stands, I’d put my money on Inbee and history.
