RIO DE JANEIRO -- Inbee Park is well aware of the expectations women golfers face in her homeland. There are four players from South Korea in the womens Olympic Golf Tournament, and Park could only chuckle when it was mentioned to her that some believe they should sweep the podium.The goal is ludicrous, even if it is not out of the question. But then Park, 28, has faced that type of pressure from the time her inspiration, Se Ri Pak, won the 1998 U.S. Womens Open and set off a firestorm of golf interest back home.Pak, who is serving as the team leader this week at the Olympic Golf Course for the womens players, was notoriously driven to excellence by her father, who among other things, would take her camping in a cemetery, then leave her alone in the dark in order to forge mental toughness and bravery.Park, who shot an opening-round 66 on Wednesday to trail first-round leader Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand by a stroke, had a golf club in her hands the day after Pak won that U.S. Open at Blackwolf Run. Ten years later, Park was winning the tournament herself, and now after 17 victories -- including seven major championships -- there are rumblings that she is ready to retire. When she played the KPMG PGA Championship in June, she qualified for the LPGA Hall of Fame.I really dont know yet, said Park, who has been dealing with a lingering thumb injury for all of 2016. Id like to have a family soon, and thats probably my priority maybe the next few years. But I really dont know whats going to happen if I have a baby or after I have a family, whether Im going to come back. Im just in between how to play the rest of my career.Park got married in October 2014 and could be excused if she is over the grind of competitive golf and expectations. She has a home in Las Vegas but spends a good amount of time in her homeland as well, two weeks ago competing in a Korean event that was her first competition since early June. Park missed the cut there as well as at the KPMG PGA, and it is a testament to how much the Olympics mean to her that she decided to skip two majors as well.So her score Wednesday was a bit of a surprise, the first time shes shot under par since April. Park had six birdies and no bogeys and made it look easy, despite missing six birdie putts from inside 10 feet.Obviously I havent really performed well, so I wasnt expecting much from myself, although I prepared very, very hard for this week, Park said. I practiced hard and gave it all Ive got. My only goal was just to play like I did in the practice rounds and I felt pretty good coming into this week. My injury felt pretty good and ball striking to putting, everything, felt like I was quite ready.Im happy to see the results today. Its a good confidence boost.Still, it was good enough to have her just a shot off the lead.Yeah, that girls good, said American Gerina Piller, who played with Park and shot 69. She makes everything she looks at. Im going to have to go ask her for a putting lesson after that. Shes pretty impressive. Shes kind of plain vanilla, she gets it done. Shes a great player.Park has slipped to fifth in the world due to her inactivity, but the South Koreans are so strong that the 10th-ranked player in the world, Ha-Na Jang, didnt qualify for the Olympics. There are nine South Koreans ranked in the top 20.Sei Young Kim, another South Korean, is tied for second after Round 1 in Rio.Park has been eyeing this moment for a long time. She was already an established pro when golf was voted back into the Olympics in 2009. She set her sights on being here then, and despite her injury woes this year, managed to qualify as the top South Korean.But she hasnt committed to anything beyond this week, including next months Evian Championship, the LPGAs fifth major.Perhaps it is because she wants to see how her thumb is feeling. Or maybe she has plans to walk away.For now, however, she is all in.I think that this could be really the highlight of my career, Park said. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity. Obviously we have five major tournaments a year. Ive played and Ive won a lot of the major championships, and obviously the Olympic Games, you get to only do it once every four years and golf in 112 years.So being able to stand here representing South Korea in my golfing career is something very special and meant to be. So very happy to be here. Its a huge honor and, like I said, could be the highlight of my career. Authentic Custom Marlins Jersey .
