Minjee Lee

Ten strokes behind at the halfway point of the 2021 Amundi Evian Championship - and still seven adrift of Jeongeun Lee6 with 18 holes to go - Minjee Lee came up with the round of her life – a seven-under 64 – to force a play-off before winning her maiden major title at the first extra hole. It came only two weeks after her younger brother Min Woo Lee captured the European Tour’s Scottish Open.

They are both former US Junior champions and as an amateur Minjee reached world number one and led Australia to victory in the Women’s World Amateur Team Championship, finishing second leading individual behind Brooke Henderson.

Lee claimed the US Women's Open title in June 2022 for her second major victory, Mina Harigae being four strokes back in second place, and three weeks later was joint runner-up in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, a stroke behind In Gee Chun.

She beat Alison Lee on the first hole of a play-off to win the BMW Ladies Championship in South Korea in October 2023.

Lee’s best finish at the AIG Women's Open is third, at Royal Troon in 2020, but she has finished in the top five in three of the last four years, including a tie for fourth at Muirfield in 2022.
