Portland, OR (Sports Network) - World No. 1 Inbee Park withdrew from the
Safeway Classic on Tuesday, citing an illness.
"I'm disappointed I will be unable to play this week in Portland due to an
illness," Park said via the LPGA Tour's twitter feed. "Safeway is such a great
supporter of our Tour and I always look forward to playing in front of the
great crowds in Oregon."

multiple victories. Stacy Lewis and Beatriz Recari are the other two players
with multiple titles this season.

three straight events, including her second and third major championships of
Park hopes to be able to play in two weeks, when the tour has its' fifth and
final major, the Evian Championship.
