Minjee Lee aces par four on LPGA: Video

Nineteen year old Minjee Lee has already reached the “Give Back” benchmark for women golfers

AUSTRALIA’S Minjee Lee has become just the second golfer in the history of the LPGA Tour to have a hole in one on a par four.

The 19 year old aced the 275-yard 16th hole during the third round of the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, California.

Remarkably, Lee is yet to ace a par three, as this was her first hole in one.

The feat came just a month after South Korea’s Ha Na Jang became  the first LPGA player to hole out on a par-four.

Lee, Australia’s top ranked woman golfer, finished in 20th place, 13 strokes behind the winner, Kiwi world number one Lydia Ko.
