US Girls Amateur Championship held at Lake Merced Golf Course in San Francisco, California, USA in July 2012. The players who reached the semifinals were Lydia Go, Minji Lee, Ariya Jutanugarn, and Allison Lee. Except for Thailand’s Jutanugarn, the remaining three were all Korean players living overseas. Lydia Ko is from New Zealand, Minji Lee is from Australia, and Allison Lee is Korean-American.
They have since grown into leading figures in women’s golf around the world. Some even called them the ‘golden generation’ of women’s golf. The four players who made it to the semifinals at the time have collectively won 40 wins on the LPGA Tour, including 6 major wins. Lydia Ko and Jutanugarn served as world number one and player of the year. But Allison Lee was an exception. She has yet to win once on the LPGA tour.
In the 2012 tournament, Allison Lee defeated Lydia Go and Minji Lee defeated Jutanugarn in the semifinals and met in the finals. In the 36-hole final, Allison Lee took the lead. She dropped a birdie putt from over 10 meters from the first hole and continued to lead thereafter. Allison Lee seemed to have effectively won, leading by 3 holes with 6 holes remaining. However, just before winning, the putter suddenly stopped listening to her. In the end, I lost in the last hole.
Allison Lee was the strongest player in U.S. junior women’s golf, winning six times on the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) tour. She also competed in the biennial Junior Solheim Cup, where she was selected three times. However, when it came to her professional performance, she was overshadowed by the performances of Lydia Ko, Juta Nucan, and Lee Min-ji.
Allison Lee entered the LPGA Tour in 2015. Coincidentally, she shared top honors with Lee Min-ji at Q School. Afterwards, the paths of the two players were different. Lee Min-ji has been winning since early 2015. Allison Lee, on the other hand, lost her spot on the LPGA Tour. There was even talk that she was giving up golf as she suffered from depression.
The final 4th round of the LPGA Tour BMW Ladies Championship took place at Seowon Hills Golf Course in Paju, Gyeonggi-do on the 22nd. Allison Lee came in second after shooting 9 under par on her first day. It was her first chance to win a competition held in her mother’s country. However, she was able to turn the tables on Lee Min-ji, who was chasing her by steadily reducing the number of strokes. On the last day, she started the game one stroke behind Lee Min-ji.짱구카지노 주소
An overtime match between the two players took place again on the 18th hole. For Allison Lee, it was an opportunity to avenge her upset loss to Lee Min-ji in 2012. However, the goddess of victory again gave Lee Min-ji’s hand. Allison Lee dropped her second shot 3 meters away from the pin. Then Minji Lee stuck the ball 1m next to the hole. In the end, Allison Lee couldn’t make the last putt and withdrew. Lee Min-ji was happy with her hands raised after making the champion putt. It was Lee Min-ji’s first victory in Korea, his parents’ country. The winning prize is $330,000 (about 440 million won). With this, Minji Lee achieved 10 wins on the LPGA tour, including two major wins. Allison Lee fell short of winning this time.
