Minjee Lee Wins in China

A birdie on the final hole gave Australia's Minjee Lee the victory at the 2016 Blue Bay LPGA tournament in China. Lee stumbled on the 71st hole with a bogey, but recovered with that final-hole birdie. Jessica Korda had a change to tie with an eagle putt at the last, but missed. Korda birdied and was runner-up, one behind Lee.

It was the third career LPGA Tour victory for Minjee, who is still (hard to believe!) just 20 years old. It was also her second LPGA win of 2016, following the Lotte Championship in April. Her first LPGA win was at the 2015 Kingsmill Championship.

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.
