HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Cleveland Golf/Srixon congratulates staffer Inbee Park for winning the 2013 Wegmans LPGA Championship over the weekend at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, NY. It's the second consecutive major title and third overall victory of 2013 for Park, who is currently the No.1 ranked player in the world. After ending regulation play in a two-way tie for the lead at 5-under-par 283, the 24-year-old sunk an 18-foot birdie putt on the third hole of a sudden-death playoff to clinch the win. This victory continues an outstanding stretch of golf that began at last year's Wegmans LPGA Championship - since then, Park has played 26 LPGA events and recorded six wins, six runner-up efforts and 18 total top-10 finishes.
"It feels so good. I didn't know that was I going to be able to do it today," said Park. "Putting my name on the Wegmans LPGA Championship trophy just means so much to me."
Park currently plays the new Z-STAR™ with Spin Skin™ technology, which will be released this August. This new model of the Z-STAR™ has already earned more than 40 professional wins worldwide. Park also plays a XXIO® 7 driver, XXIO® Forged irons (5-PW) and Cleveland® 588® wedges (47°, 51°, 56°). Park wears a Srixon® glove and shoes, and carries a Srixon® bag.
