Fellow South Korean Jin-Young Ko, the long-time leader in the fourth round, needed a hole-in-one at the par-4 No. 18 to force a playoff at Turnberry. The 20-year-old major debutant didn't reach the green.

The LPGA Tour is calling Park's achievement a career Grand Slam, although she hasn't won the Evian Championship since it was given the status of a fifth major in 2013. She did win Evian in 2012.

Park finished on 12-under 276 to win her seventh major overall, and has captured six of the last 14.
