Minjee Lee cruises to second major title

SOUTHERN PINES, NC — After three days of some of the lowest scores in US Women’s Open history, a fight broke out in Pine Needles.

Challenging hole locations, an increase in wind and the largest bag in women’s golf history finally got things burning.

Only the battle wasn’t on top, as no one could mount a charge to challenge the graceful and unflappable Minjee Lee, who entered the final round with a three-shot lead and finished 13-under, four ahead of the American Mina Harigae. claim the second major title from her. Lee, 26, became the first Australian to win the US Women’s Open since Karrie Webb triumphed at Pine Needles 21 years ago.

“It’s been my dream since I was a little girl,” Lee said. “He is the one I always wanted to win; now I have, and he feels amazing.”
