Continued: Grand Slam or not, Inbee Park will be chasing 4th straight major at Women's British Open

After the Women's British Open on Aug. 1-4, The Evian Championship is Sept. 12-15 for the year's fifth and final major. If Park can win at St. Andrews, everyone will need to decide whether a new term is required for winning all the majors.

Park recalled when there were other players she thought she couldn't beat. She kept working at her game and proved herself wrong. So she figures there's no reason her rivals won't do the same now.

"I know I have a long ways to go to go somewhere like what Yani (Tseng) or what Annika and what Lorena (Ochoa) have achieved," Park said.

She added: "I still have a lot of things to learn."

No matter what happens in Scotland, Park will always be the first player in the modern era to win the year's first three majors.

"We might not see that again for another 60 years," said Sorenstam, now an analyst for Golf Channel.

Park and Beecher didn't talk about the record book until after she hit her third shot on the par-5 18th hole Sunday.

"I just said to her, 'Mate, you're just about to join history, enjoy this walk,'" the Australian recalled.

And Park actually grinned.
