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.

Se Ri Pak, the 34-year-old LPGA golf star from South Korea, had a nice return to the tour yesterday.

Playing for the first time since injuring her left shoulder in early April of this year, Pak shot a 1-under 71 to become the front-runner after the second round of the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

The shocker of the tournament on Friday was the retirement of Grace Park. The 33-year-old had some success on the LPGA Tour with six wins and a majors win, the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2004.

Pak is at a 3-under-par 141, one shot ahead of Inbee Park (70), Paula Creamer (72), Mika Miyazato (72) and Sandra Gal (71).
