A couple weeks ago, Inbee Park got into the winner’s circle for the first time in 2014 at the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic. Park said her final round 61 at Manulife was a “big confidence boost, especially with the putting.” If Inbee continues putting lights out, then she will have a terrific opportunity to defend her 2013 U.S. Open title.
