While the average percentage on the PGA Tour is 25.5, it is 23.3 on the LPGA Tour. The South Korean golfer is way ahead of both PGA and LPGA Tour pros when it comes to the game on the greens. She is well known as the Queen bee, and this is the main reason behind it. 

Moreover, she currently tops the list with 28.71 putting average this year. There is no one else currently in the world of golf who can confidently hole out putts like Inbee Park from 10 to 15 feet. However, when it comes to smaller putts of around 5 feet, she has struggled a little bit.

And she explained the reason for this, saying, “So, but like 3 to 5, 7 feet, you know, I think I’m putting too much pressure on myself, so maybe that’s why the percentages are lower. That’s the game I’m trying to get.”

However, the only thing where she struggles is gaining distance off the tee. In this season, she currently ranks 151st with an average distance of 241.33 yards. Hence, if she can slightly work on her off the tee game, she will be an unstoppable force in the golfing world.
