Lee set to debut as pro
AUSTRALIA’S leading amateur golfer, Min Woo Lee, has turned professional and will make his debut at this week’s Abu Dhabi Championship.
Lee, 20, is the younger brother of women’s world No.6 Minjee Lee.
“People have been asking me for a little while, but I’ve now proven to myself that I can compete at the highest level and my team and I feel that there are good opportunities ahead,” Lee said.
“It has been an amazing ride and I can’t wait for the next chapters.”
THE irony has not been lost on the golfing world after Robert Allenby, known as “The Beast” for his dealings with caddies, officiated the wedding ceremony for his current bag-carrier on a Colorado mountaintop.Allenby, 47, became an ordained minister to conduct the ceremony for caddie Danny Stout and his new wife Sam Troyanovich, an LPGA Tour pro who just finished her rookie season.Troyanovich said Allenby, who has used as many as 24 different caddies during his career — twice sacking them mid-round — was a changed man.
