Hee Young Park has been a solid player on the LPGA Tour since joining in 2008, and she's come close to victory in the past. But LPGA Win No. 1 eluded her. Until now. Park won the season-ending CME Group Titleholders and the hefty half-a-million-dollar first prize paycheck that came with it.
Park entered the Titleholders 32nd on the money list; now she'll finish the year inside the Top 15. She should also get a nice boost in the world rankings, in which she was 58th entering the tournament.
