Inbee Park won her first major, the U.S. Women's Open, as a 19-year-old, and has added three more this year.

What a year it was for Inbee Park. The LPGA Tour superstar, who celebrates her 25th birthday today, made history as a 24-year-old and has the opportunity to cement her legend at 25. This season, Park became the second woman – and first since Babe Didrikson Zaharias in 1950 – to win the first three professional majors in a calendar year. No woman has ever won four majors in a calendar year. Park will take aim at that mark starting Aug. 1 at the Ricoh Women’s British Open at St. Andrews. As a 24-year-old, Park won a total of eight tournaments – including two in the 2012 season – and approximately $3 million in prize money.
