Las Vegas, Nevada (July 1, 2013)--It's fitting that the hottest golfer on the planet in 2013 laid the roots of her game in one of the hottest places on earth, Las Vegas. While record temps are hitting the city that glitters, Inbee Park has been establishing records of her own en route to winning the first three majors on the LPGA Tour in 2013.

Park, who played high school golf in the Las Vegas Golf Region, joins Babe Zaharias and Bobby Jones as the only golfers in history to win the first three majors of any season. --By Brian Hurlburt, Follow @LVGolfInsider
