Gulbis and Rodarmel

Natalie Gulbis is at a good place in her life personally and professionally. Gulbis, who endured malaria earlier this season, revealed to Golf World last week at the U.S. Women’s Open that she’s engaged to marry 29-year-old Josh Rodarmel, who was a co-owner of the company Power Balance.

Dominant Park

It was never a question of whether or not Inbee Park would secure her third straight major of the season, it was more a matter of how many would she would win by. Park wasn’t perfect in Sunday’s final round at Sebonack, but she didn’t need to be — she posted a two-over 74 to capture the U.S. Women’s Open by four strokes over I.K. Kim.

Korda and her former caddie

Talk about drama! — apparently Jessica Korda and her now-former caddie, Jason Gilroyed, had irreconcilable differences because after her front nine in the third round of the U.S. Women’s Open, she fired him and replaced him with her boyfriend Johnny DelPrete, according to a tweet from Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman.

IK Kim in good position to secure first major championship

Don’t worry, the USGA wasn’t going to go all soft on the ladies two days in a row at the U.S. Women’s Open. Along with breezy conditions on Friday at Sebonack, the pin placements were much less accessible than Thursday’s setup.

Second-round play was suspended due to fog, but here’s the Top Five from the second round:

Natalie Gulbis looking pretty in pink!

With mild conditions and an extremely benevolent setup by the USGA — words you never thought you’d hear! — Sebonack was for the taking in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open, which certainly didn’t make it “easy,” either. Without further ado (and because I’m starving), Thursday’s top five…

Inbee

Know this girl

World no. 1 Inbee Park continues to dominate the women’s golf circuit, posting a superb five-under 67 at Sebonack to take the clubhouse lead in the first round of the U.S. Women’s Open.

Park has already won five times — yes, FIVE — this season, including the first two majors.

Sebonack

Sebonack is pretty, but don’t let that fool you

Sebonack is raring to go for an incredibly scenic U.S. Women’s Open, but its beauty is deceiving. And the USGA sets up the golf course, so expect a grueling challenge, especially with these tricky greens — some of which are about as natural-looking as the surface of the moon — and strong winds.

The USGA is also quite deft at putting together great pairings for the first two rounds. 2012 USWO champ Na Yeon Choi will play with 2012 U.S. Amateur champ Lydia Ko, who is also only 16 years old, and Brittany Lincicome.
