Minjee has to play catch-up in Evian defence – Golf Australia Magazine – The Women’s Game

The Australian star, currently the form player in the women’s game, finds herself already having to play catch-up as she seeks her third major crown following her first-round, one-under-par 70 on Thursday.

It wasn’t a bad round by any means but it’s left the Perth player already seven shots off the red-hot pace being set by Japan’s Ayaka Furue, whose eight-under-par 63 featured nine birdies.

Lee is also well adrift of some of her most formidable rivals, who started in impressive form on a beautiful, baking day at Evian-les-Bains designed for low scoring.

After winning the U.S. Women’s Open last month and finishing joint-second in the KPMG Women’s PGA, Lee says she’s been “in a good place” with her game.
