Lee set to de­but as pro

Sunday Herald Sun - - Sport -

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. Di­a­monds mid­courter Kelsey Browne is all set for the Quad Se­ries in Eng­land. Pic­ture: GETTY IM­AGES
