Inbee Park wins Ricoh Women's British Open

The South Korean won her 7th Major tournament at Turnberry

The South Korean claimed her seventh major at Turnberry.

Inbee Park won the Ricoh Women's British Open by three shots at Turnberry yesterday.

The South Korean won her seventh major thanks to a final round 65, edging out compatriot Jin-Young Ko with a score of -12.

Park, world no. 1, now has four titles this year, including the KPMG PGA Women's Championship in June.

She said: "I've set only one goal this year, one and only, and that's winning the British Open. And being the only goal I've set it, feels great.

"There's so much that I had to overcome in the Women's British Open, and it always felt so hard before I've finally done it."

Park shot two bogeys in her final round, including on the par 3 4th, but eagled the par 5 14th before making her seventh birdie on 16.
