Park In-bee, who won the LPGA's Player of the Year award and the money title for the second straight year, has been included among this year's list of "30 golfing treasures" by the U.S. sports network ESPN on Wednesday.
Park ranked second after Phil Mickelson of the U.S., the winner of this season's British Open. She won the first three majors of the season for the first time in 63 years and earned six titles, breaking Pak Se-ri's record of five titles in a season.
"It had been a more than a decade since anyone -- male or female -- made a realistic run at the Grand Slam. Park convinced us that the impossible just might be possible. Hopefully it won't be another decade before someone aims this high again," it said.
About Mickelson, it said, "He showed us that even at 43, the best lefty ever can still produce magical rounds and rewrite his legacy."
