Mi Hyang Lee Ties LPGA's 9-Hole Scoring Record

Wow, talk about a hot start: Mi Hyang Lee just tied the LPGA Tour's 9-hole scoring record over the first nine holes of her first round in the LPGA Founders Cup.

That record is 27 strokes, and Lee is the fifth golfer in LPGA history to do it. The other four are Amy Yang, Paula Creamer, I.K. Kim and Jimin Kang. Kang was the first, in 2005.

Lee, starting on the 10th hole, opened with a birdie and then an eagle. On the 12th hole (her third), she made her only par of the nine. She then reeled off six consecutive birdies to shoot 27, 9-under par on the par-36 nine.

Good work if you can get it!

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
