Grace Park pulls a surprise; retires in the middle of LPGA Championship in New York

 

In a surprise and shocking move, South Korean Grace Park, winner of the 2004 Kraft Nabisco major championship and winner of the Vare Trophy in the sane year for the lowest-scoring average on the tour,  announced her retirement from golf on Friday after the second round of the LPGA Championship.

The 33-year-old Park made the announcement after her second consecutive round of three-over 75 at the Locust Hill Country Club in the year’s second women’s major tournament.

Park has not won an event in eight years and said dealing with injuries over and over had been a great frustration for her. She admitted that she did not give herself a chance to win and be a better golfer. “It’s my own fault for not taking care of my body.”

She has struggled with back pain since her days as a junior golfer.

The South Korean native, who now calls Scottsdale, Arizona home, went through two back surgeries and took three years off the tour to recuperate.

Park, who moved to the United States at the age of 12, went to Arizona State University and became the College Player of the Year, says it’s time to get ready for the next phase of her life. She is planning to get married.

LPGA star Brittany Lincicome won her first tournament in two years when she sank a 4-foot putt on the final hole over the weekend to win the ShopRite LPGA Classis in Galloway Township, New Jersey.

The 25-year-old’s birdie topped-off a bogey-free round of 5-under-par 66 that gave her a one-shot win over #3 Jiyai Shin and #4 Cristie Kerr.

One of the longest-hitting golfers on the LPGA Tour, Lincicome won her first tournament  since the 2009 Kraft Nabisco and her fourth on Tour.

The Seminole, Florida native finished the the 54-hole tournament at 11-under. The key to the win was her play on the par 5′s where she earned seven birdies, an eagle and a par.

Lincicome turned pro in 2004.
