From LPGA site..
The Dumbo Slam
It’s been nicknamed the “Dumbo Slam.” Others are simply calling it the “Global Slam.” Or to make it even simpler, it’s totally acceptable to just call it the “In Gee Slam.”
Three months. Three tours. Three major championship titles.
What 20-year-old In Gee Chun has done over the last two and half months is simply unheard of. She first won the season’s biggest major on the JLPGA – World Ladies Championship Salonpas Cup – by four strokes in mid-May and then came over to the United States three weeks ago and won the U.S. Women’s Open in her first ever start in that event. Then, last week, on the KLPGA, she won one of that Tour’s majors – Hite Jinro Championship – by three shots.
And those three wins – each major championships on their respective Tour – weren’t her only wins. She also has won three other tournaments on the KLPGA in 2015.
So, for those keeping count at home, that’s six professional wins in the last three and half months, starting with her win April 19 at the KLPGA’s Samchully Together Open.
“Since I won major tournaments in Japan and the US and Korea last week, all this happened within a span of two months,” Chun said through an interpreter. “In the last month, everybody has cheered for me and everybody was happy about it and everybody was excited to see that event, my achievement. Korea is crazy about me right now, and so now I’m here in Scotland, so everyone is looking forward to me playing here. Everybody will probably stay up all night watching this event, so I’m really looking forward to it as well.”
