Inbee Park managed to hold on to her lead heading into the final round of the Evian Masters Presented by Société Générale to clinch her second career LPGA victory since the 2008 U.S. Women's Open. The 23-year-old fired rounds of 71-64-70-66 to finish 17-under par, two strokes ahead of Rolex Rankings No. 24 Karrie Webb and No. 3 Stacy Lewis.
Park claims a $487,500 first-place check at her 83rd tournament since winning the U.S. Women's Open, taking her career earnings to $3,910,291. Also a member of the Japan Ladies Professional Golf Association, Park has won four times including the 2010 Nishijin Ladies Classic, 2010 Japan LPGA Tour Championship Ricoh Cup, 2011 Daikin Orchid Ladies and last month's Fundokin Ladies. In her five year tenure on the LPGA Tour, Park has notched 29 top-10 finishes and has five consecutive top-10s so far this season including a T9 at the Wegmans LPGA Championship, T2 at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic, T4 at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship Presented by P&G and a T9 at the U.S. Women's Open.
