AUSTRALIAN golf’s dynamic duo, Minjee and Min Woo Lee, are set to light up the Australian Open next month with their brother-sister act.
Golf Australia confirmed that both the siblings from Perth will tee it up in the historic first mixed-gender Open at Victoria Golf Club and Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne from December 1-4.
With men, women and All Abilities players all competing on the same stages at the same time, the Open will return after two years’ absence with its most inclusive format ever, as well as a cracking field.
The Lees will join the likes of Cameron Smith, Adam Scott, Hannah Green, Marc Leishman, Steph Kyriacou, Karrie Webb, Lucas Herbert, Cam Davis, Matt Jones, Geoff Ogilvy, Kiwi Ryan Fox and AIG Women’s Open winner Ashleigh Buhai in the field as well as a bunch of DP World Tour players as part of the co-sanctioning agreement in place for the men’s tournament.
The men’s and women’s tournaments will run concurrently with equal prizemoney of $1.7 million each.
Former Karrie Webb Scholarship holder Minjee Lee is currently ranked No. 3 in the world having won majors in both the past two years on the women’s circuit, highlighted by her victory at Pine Needles Golf Club in North Carolina in June this year at the US Women’s Open – the biggest tournament in women’s golf with a $US10m prize pool.
