As Inbee Park chases a fourth major championship in a row, it has captured the attention of guys who understand just how hard it is to do.
“Personally, I’d love to see her do it,” Rory McIlroy said of Park’s quest to add the Women’s British Open trophy to the first three majors she won this year. “I think it would be great for golf, great for ladies’ golf.
“I think a lot of people hope that she goes on and does it because it’s something that may never happen again. It’s very impressive.”
Tiger Woods said it would be “pretty cool” if Park could join him, Bobby Jones and Mickey Wright as the only players to win four consecutive major championships.
Phil Mickelson, fresh off his own Open win in Scotland, echoed the sentiment.
“It’s pretty incredible,” Mickelson said. “It’s hard enough just to win one major, as I’ve found out throughout my career and to win three in a row like that is just amazing.
“If she’s able to do it, what a great place to do it, at the home of golf at St. Andrews, if she’s able to get that fourth.”
