Young Lee lands a Euro Tour card

The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - Gee­long

– Min Woo Lee fol­lowed in his sis­ter’s foot­steps by win­ning the in­no­va­tive Vic Open.

He also earned a two-year Euro­pean Tour ex­emp­tion in the process. South Korea’s Park Hee-young claimed the women’s ti­tle af­ter a play-off.

Seen as one of Aus­tralia’s most ex­cit­ing young tal­ents, 21-year-old Lee showed nerves of steel to hold on to his overnight lead with a four-un­der-par 68 to win by two strokes from New Zealan­der Ryan Fox.

South Korea’s Ayean Cho was the overnight women’s leader, but she had a hor­ror fi­nal round of 81. – AFP
