Minjee Lee, where will she stop?
It was against this backdrop and with her status as an elite player that Minjee Lee commenced her 2022 season at the HSBC Women’s World Championship, one of the most important events of the year - aside from the majors - at which she was close to pulling off a feat. Distanced by Jin-Young Ko, the tournment leader, she shot seven birdies on the back nine on the Sunday to finish runner-up just two shots off the play-off. Countless noteworthy performances then followed, such as her wonderful 3th place finish at the DIO Implant LA Open, before finally holding high another trophy in May at the Cognizant Founders Cup in New Jersey (USA). Three weeks later, she claimed her second major championship victory by comfortably winning the US Women's Open, with a 4-shot lead on the runner-up Mina Harigae and six ahead of the South Korean Hyejin Choi. Satisfied but never replete, Minjee Lee continued her dream season at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in Maryland, USA, where she lost out on the title to In Gee Chun by one shot.
