Lee birdied the last two holes, after almost eagle-ing (is that a word?) the last, to win by a stroke. The youngest player to ever win on the Euro Tour and only the second amateur to do so. He gave a nice little speech. Very gracious, very professional. He will turn professional after the US Masters in April.
Man, this kid is amazing. It’s not profound to say so. We heard him coming when he won last years US Amateur Championship at a younger age than when Tiger Woods won it. There’s been so much said about whether Camilo Villegas, Anthony Kim or any other young gun can challenge of even be the next Tiger Woods. Lee could be in the mix much faster than expected.
P.S. When Lee almost eagled 18, the microphones weren’t anywhere near the crowd. No crowd atmosphere could be heard or felt in what was clearly a very exciting moment. Renton Laidlaw saying “Ooooh!”, just doesn’t cut it for exciting golf coverage.
