Minjee Lee wins Australian Women's Am
SOUTH OAKLEY, VICTORIA, Australia (Jan. 20, 2013) -- Western Australia's Minjee Lee cruised to a 6&5 victory over South Australian-based Korean Jenny Lee in the final of the Australian Women's Amateur Championship.

Minjee was in control for much of the match and it was a chance for the Royal Fremantle member to go one better than her narrow loss in the final in 2011.

“It feels amazing. It’s such an honour to win this tournament. It’s been a long week so it’s a great reward,” Lee said.

Lee, the current US Girls' Junior Champion, said she felt she could respond when she was challenged.

“I felt I could always get back up if I was down,” she said.

Lee’s grandmother and mother were also there to watch her victory.

“Mum said afterwards she was going to have a heart attack a couple of times, but she’s proud of me,” Lee said.

Lee earns an exemption into next month’s ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open at Royal Canberra Golf Club from 14-17 February.

"It's an LPGA event so it will have a great field and I'm really looking forward to it," Lee added.
