Amateur Lee at ease with best
MIN Woo Lee promised fireworks at Lake Karrinyup’s ISPS Handa World Super 6.
The 19-year-old West Australian amateur delivered on that promise Sunday, knocking out the top-ranked player in the field and the number one seed on his way to a quarterfinal finish.
Lee, who qualified as the 16th seed for the match play component of the tournament, was unfazed at receiving the most challenging draw of any player at the tournament.
He beat world number 38 Satoshi Kodaira of Japan in the opening match, followed by No.1 seed Prom Meesawat from Thailand before bowing out in the quarter-final to Englishman Sam Horsfield.
“I am pretty proud of how I played this week; I don’t know what officially I came but I am happy I am here and getting the opportunity to play,” Lee said.
In two rounds of match play, Lee claimed 10 birdies in his first 12 holes.
“I just took every chance; every shot really just turned out how I wanted it to,” he said.
