Inbee Park is in position to end any debate over whether she has won the career grand slam in women’s golf.
Or Super Slam, whatever you want to call the sweep of the five majors in the women’s game.
While Park has won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship three times, the U.S. Women’s Open twice and the Ricoh Women’s and ANA Inspiration once each, her victory at the Evian Championship came a year before it was designated a major. She won Evian in 2012.

Park’s 4-under-par 67 Saturday moved her into a tie for fourth, five shots off the lead.
“Every time I play Evian I kind of think about it,” Park said. “If it happens, it happens; if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I’m just trying to play better golf every day and that’s what I’m trying to focus on.”
Karrie Webb is the only player to win five different LPGA majors.
Park is seeking to win her eighth major overall, which would move her into a tie for sixth with Betsy Rawls.
