The South Korean world number one is attempting to become the first golfer - male or female - to win four majors in one season at the event.
Following her victories at the Kraft Nabisco, LPGA Championship and US Open, the addition of a first British Open would rewrite history but she is thinking only about the golf.
"It is nice to be back here in Scotland with three major victories," said the 25-year-old, who finished 11th as a rookie at the Women's British Open at St Andrews in 2007.
"There is a lot of pressure and everyone is talking about me trying to make it four in a row. But I'm getting used to it and once I am on the course I only think about golf."
Park has practised on the Old Course this week in preparation for her title challenge and knows it will be tough.
"I feel as though I've already played two different golf courses.
"Yesterday (Monday), there was no wind. Today (Tuesday) was really windy and wet and it was completely different.
"I have great memories of 2007. It was my first year on Tour and Lorena Ochoa won the title. At that time, she was the best player in the world."
Park made her first big breakthrough in 2008 with a win as a teenager in the US Women's Open, but it took until last year's Evian Masters in France before she collected her second LPGA title.
"I was only 19 when I won that first major and I wasn't experienced," she reflected.
"I needed a few more years to get used to everything associated with being a top player. I've matured as a person and my swing has also improved - that's the difference over the past year or so."
