INFOGRAPHIC: Comparing Inbee Park to greatest major seasons in golf

Inbee-Park-USWO_r640

After winning her third major in as many played in 2013, Inbee Park is not only inspiring talk of a single-season Grand Slam (the LPGA Tour has five majors starting this year) but is also drawing comparisons to the greatest seasons in pro-golf history.

We take a look at Park's year compared to what LPGA co-founder Babe Zaharias did in 1950, Ben Hogan did in 1953 and Tiger Woods' accomplishments in 2000.

Zaharias won all three majors played that year, as the LPGA Tour only recognized a trio. Ben Hogan could not play in the PGA Championship in 1953 because of a scheduling conflict with the Open Championship overseas. Woods came up short to Vijay Singh at the 2000 Masters, but swept the rest of the year, then won the '01 Masters to become the first man to simultaneously hold all four pro major titles at once.
