Park draws early Thursday tee time at British

Inbee Park during the third round of the 2013 U.S. Women's Open at Sebonack in Southampton, N.Y.

Inbee Park will begin a quest for her fourth major of the season when she tees off early Thursday morning at St. Andrews.

Park will play alongside Jodi Ewart Shadoff and Beatriz Recari, and will tee off at 7:03 a.m. local time. Recari won the Marathon Classic two weeks ago in a final-round battle with Paula Creamer that came down to the 72nd hole.

Creamer will play in the group ahead of Park with Sandra Gal and Ai Miyazato (6:52 a.m.). The group ahead of that (6:41 a.m.) includes World No. 2 Stacy Lewis, Karrie Webb and Mika Miyazato.

The marquee group on the bottom of the tee sheet includes Jessica Korda, Michelle Wie and LET rookie Charley Hull at 11:37 a.m. They’re followed by defending champion Jiyai Shin, Morgan Pressel and Catriona Matthew, who won this championship in 2009. The next group should draw just as many fans because of Suzann Pettersen, leader in European Solheim Cup points, and newly engaged Natalie Gulbis.
