Min Woo Lee seizes three-shot lead at Australian Open, eyeing back-to-back wins

Posted : 01 December 2023

Min Woo Lee surged to a three-shot lead at the midway point of the Australian Open, eying a consecutive victory following last week's Australian PGA Championships win. The Australian golfer delivered a remarkable eagle on the 18th, finishing the second round with a seven-under-par 64, totaling 12-under for the tournament.


His stellar performance put him three shots ahead of competitors Connor Syme and Patrick Rodgers. Lee expressed joy in his current form, relishing the opportunity to play in Australia and bask in the enthusiastic crowd support.


The unique format of the Australian Open features both men and women competing simultaneously for their respective titles on two different courses. Lee's older sister, Minjee, a two-time major winner, played in the group behind him.


Despite a challenging day, Minjee's presence on the course brought a familial connection that Min Woo Lee cherished. South Korea's Shin Ji-yai led the women's tournament after shooting a four-under 68, holding a two-shot advantage over reigning champion Ashleigh Buhai.


In the men's event, 16-year-old amateur Rachel Lee, who qualified on Monday, faced a tougher second round, dropping down the leaderboard with a seven-over-par 79. Cameron Smith, a former British Open champion, rebounded from a disappointing Australian PGA performance with a three-under 68.


Adam Scott, another major winner, joined Smith at four-under for the tournament after a solid four-under 68 at the Lakes course. Despite signs of frustration, Smith remains optimistic about his game and aims to improve his putting in the upcoming rounds.
