LPGA. Kraft Nabisco Championship. Park Prevails By Three Shots. April 08 2013

KraftNabiscoChampionship_188x84 Inbee Park prevailed by four shots at the  LPGA, Kraft Nabisco Championship and took the traditional winners plunge into  Poppie’s Pond at the 18th green. Inbee Park / LPGA Inbee Park's four shot win at the Kraft Nabisco Championship has catapulted her to number two in the Rolex World Rankings, just behind Stacy Lewis. Her last round of -3 under par gave her a tournament total of -15 under par. Inbee really wants the number one spot in the rankings; " That’s the place that I’ve always wanted and I only have one more spot to go. That brings a lot of momentum, keeps momentum going for me, especially after this week. I felt a lot of confidence with my swing and with my putting. Everything has been going the right way this season. It feels good." Of the pond plunge at Mission Hills, Inbee said;  "It was great, that‘s the pond I've always wanted to jump in, and I finally jumped. It was a little bit chilly, though." So Yeon Ryu finished in second place at -11 under par, and when asked about her performance, trying to chase down her friend, Inbee, she said; "Well, it's hard to say, but I really wanted to finish strong, so I was just expecting to finish top five. I couldn't expect winning because I know how Inbee is playing really consistently and I know how her putting was great, so I couldn't expect winning, but I really wanted to finish top five, but I finished second, so I made it. Actually first of all, she really likes to gamble, so when I practice with her she always calls me to gamble like ten bucks a hole, whatever. But she always makes the hardest par putts, like eight‑foot par putts, 16‑foot par putts.  I can't win like ten bucks.  She always wins like 50 bucks.  She always takes my money, so she always buys me dinner, lunch, whatever. Anyway, the important thing is she looks so easy, and putting is so easy.  Sometimes my putting was really great when I was playing with her, but not enough. I think her tempo is really great, her tempo is always consistent.  And what else?  Oh, and she taught me that when she was putting, the weight is a bit on the left side.  She looks like 70 and 30, and she says, before her weight was like 50/50, but now she changed it, and her weight has moved a bit more to the left side.  She said that's really helped her putting." Tied in third place at -9 under par were Caroline Hedwall and Suzann Petterson. World Amateur number one Lydia Ko finished a disappointing -2 under par and tied in 25th place.
