AKRON, Ohio – Inbee Park may be chasing history five time zones away from the festivities at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but some of the biggest names on the men’s side of the game are keeping a keen eye on what she’s attempting to accomplish this week.
Tiger Woods: “It's pretty incredible to win the first three and the way she did it, executing, and it seemed like she just is making everything. It's good to see. It's really neat to see someone out there and doing something that no one has ever done, so that's pretty cool.”
Phil Mickelson: “It's pretty incredible. 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.”
Rory McIlroy: “I'd love to see her do it. I think it would be great for the game of golf, great for ladies' golf. Yeah, I mean, I really hope she does. 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. I'll be keeping up to date this week.”
