Golf Australia Express : GA Express 304
complete Australia’s major championship jigsaw puzzle. The tournament, played in south-eastern France, earned major status in 2013 and has alluded our Aussie players ever since. Karrie Webb came closest to winning it when she finished runner-up to Hyo Joo Kim in 2014 – and Katherine Kirk gave us fresh hope when she finished T3 last year. Lee, meanwhile, hasn’t managed to crack the top-10 in her four attempts. We’re one of the proudest nations on the planet when it comes to sport. So it’s sometimes difficult to comprehend why our highest-ranked female golfer is yet to capture one of the five major championships on offer – especially when you consider every other player currently inside the world’s top-10 has already achieved that feat. It’s hard to fault Lee’s game on paper. She’s ranked third on Tour for her scoring average (69.67), first for sand saves (62%), ninth for greens in regulation (73.98%) and better than average for both her distance (39th) and accuracy (40th) off the tee. So what does she need to do to break into the major winner’s circle? Firstly, let’s not forget that Webb didn’t capture her first major until she was 24. It’s also important to consider we’re currently witnessing the byproduct of the influence players like Webb and Annika Sorenstam had on young golfers all around the world. My ultimate goal is to have a Grand Slam. -MINJEE LEE COVER STORY
