TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) As Inbee Park hunted down Jin-Young Ko in the final stretch of the Women's British Open, it quickly became clear which South Korean was the rookie and which was the player about to add another chapter in golf's record book.

Park won by three shots on 12-under 276 for a seventh major title, becoming just the seventh female player to win four different majors - after Louise Suggs, Mickey Wright, Pat Bradley, Juli Inkster, Karrie Webb and Annika Sorenstam.
