Annie Park Career
Annie Park developed an impressive amateur record, earning many national and worldwide titles. She triumphed at the U.S. Girls’ Junior in 2012, the North and South Women’s Amateur in 2013 and the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship in the same year with the USC Trojans. Park also grabbed the Pac-12 Conference Championship twice and was praised with the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year awards in 2013.
She represented the United States in remarkable team competitions, such as the Curtis Cup in 2014, the Espirito Santo Trophy in 2014, and the Palmer Cup in 2015. Her rankings have been prepossessing, secured as high as No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and No. 1 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Ranking.
Annie Park turned professional in late 2015 at the age of 20. She earned her card for the LPGA Tour through qualifying school in 2016. Her rookie season on the LPGA Tour was cut short by a back injury that sidelined her for four months. She bounced back in 2017, finishing runner-up at the Cambia Portland Classic and recording four top-10 finishes.
Annie also won her first professional title at the Symetra Tour Championship on the Symetra Tour. She had her breakthrough season on the LPGA Tour in 2018, when she won her maiden title at the ShopRite LPGA Classic by one stroke over Sakura Yokomine. Annie also finished third at the Meijer LPGA Classic and recorded six top-10 finishes. She was named LPGA Tour Rookie of the Year for 2018.
However, she struggled to maintain her form in 2019 and 2020, missing several cuts and dropping to No. 217 in the world ranking by the end of 2020. She also suffered from a wrist injury that required surgery in late 2020.
Annie returned to action in early 2021 but failed to make an impact on either tour. She missed eight cuts out of 15 events on the LPGA Tour and two cuts out of four events on the Symetra Tour. Her best finish on either tour was a tie for 28th at the Pure Silk Championship on the LPGA Tour.
She finally regained her confidence and form in July 2021, when she won her second LPGA Tour title at the Greater Toledo LPGA Classic by three strokes over Lydia Ko. Annie shot a final round of 63, matching her career-low score, to finish at 19-under par. She became the first player to win on both tours in one season since Jin Young Ko in 2017.
