“I’m really confident with my game this week, and, hopefully, I’ll win this event and play in The Players Championship,” he said.
Lee, who was 18 years and one month old when he bumped Tiger Woods as the youngest winner of the U.S. Amateur last August, became the youngest winner of a European Tour event when he claimed the Johnnie Walker Classic in February. He was just the second amateur to win on that tour.
Woods tied for 60th at the Greater Milwaukee Open in his pro debut. He won his fifth start, the Las Vegas Invitational.
