Minjee Lee Height, Weight, Parents, Family, Bio, Other Facts

“Achieve your goals,” and “Do your best” were the motivational messages that guided Minjee Lee as a young girl to become what got us and you interested in her today. She reached the top position of the number one ranked amateur golfer and retained that position until she went pro.

You will find out here, how she has been able to grow her career at a blazing pace amidst the myriad of talents who cannot be pushed over in the world of women’s golf.

Bio of Minjee Lee

Minjee is a Korean-Australian who was born on 27th May 1996 in Perth, Australia. From an early age, her mother Clara was very supportive of her playing golf and would often drive her to her training. She would also help to display her little daily goals with sticky notes where she was able to see them and get properly guided in her daily activity.

This form of well-regimented upbringing also meant that Minjee Lee wouldn’t find it a herculean task training and practicing extremely hard in the golf course. When the Korean-Aussie was 10 years old, she was already training and practicing as much as 8 hours a day; something that later paid off as she began to blossom in her professional golf career.

At the young age of 9 in the year 2010, she attained the feat of being the youngest winner of the WA Amateur Open at the Methodist Ladies’ College, Perth. She later moved from the Methodist College to Corpus Christi College in 2012, so as to be closer to her golf course and by 2013, she left the latter school.

At the age of 11, Minjee was able to draw the attention of Ritchie Smith with her impressive talents and he later became her golf coach.
