Australia’s world No.1 ranked amateur Minjee Lee is ready to perform on the world stage

THE women take up where the men left off at Pinehurst No.2 this week with back to back majors at the same course for the very first time.

Whether any of the women golfers can put on a runaway performance similar to the clinical display of Martin Kaymer last week remains to be seen.

The redoubtable Inbee Park is defending champion this week in North Carolina and will be hoping to emulate Australia’s Karrie Webb, who won the US Open back to back in 2000 – 2001.

Webb leads an eight strong Aussie contingent that also includes the world’s No.1 ranked amateur Minjee Lee, Katherine Kirk, Sarah Jane Smith, Stacey Keating, Nikki Campbell, Rebecca Artis and Stephanie Na.

Teenager Lee knows it is going to be tough competing on such a hard course against the established professionals, even though the course has been cut back by more than 800 metres and the notorious greens softened.

“At the Kraft Nabisco, I learnt that I can mix it with the professionals and contend. I think it’s still going to be a pretty tough setup. I walked a couple of holes today and they were looking pretty torn up but still playable,” Lee said.

We might have thought Lee was a youngster but the appearance of 11 year old Californian golfer Lucy Li makes her look ancient. Li progressed through qualifying to become the youngest ever entrant.

Favoured contenders this week include world number one Stacy Lewis, Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson, Cristie Kerr, Jessica Korda, Paula Creamer, Lydia Ko, Suzann Pettersen and of course two time winner Karrie Webb.
