Park first picked up a golf club the day after Se Ri Pak won the U.S. Women’s Open in 1998. Ten years later, Park won the first of her seven majors at Interlachen in the U.S. Women’s Open. She has won the four biggest LPGA majors and Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

The most recent of her 21 LPGA titles was the Kia Classic in March 21.
