Minjee Lee Goes Pro

The world's No. 1-ranked amateur is an amateur no more. A day after helping Team Australia win the World Amateur Championship, 18-year-old Minjee Lee announced she is turning pro.

The announcement was made in a video posted to YouTube by Golf Australia:

Lee has won a slew of top amateur tournaments, including the U.S. Girls Amateur Championship in 2012 and the Australian Women's Amateur in 2013 and 2014. And she's played in plenty of pro tournaments already, too, including Top 25 finishes in both the U.S. Women's Open and the Kraft Nabisco Championship this year. She was part of Team Australia at the LPGA's inaugural International Crown (the only amateur in the field), and won the ALPG's Oates Victorian Open this year.

Get used to hearing about Minjee Lee. Her winning ways are very likely to continue in the professional ranks.

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.
