Alison Lee Wins on LET

LPGA Tour golfer Alison Lee
Alison Lee claimed the individual championship in the Ladies European Tour's Aramco Team Series – Sotogrande tournament recently (the tournament concluded on August 7, 2021). And that's significant because ... well, we'll let Lee tell you.

On Instagram (@thealisonlee), Alison wrote: "My first professional win!! Had such a fun week in Spain playing the beautiful @lareservasotogrande! Thank you to @aramco_series @letgolf for hosting such a world class event and for having me. I’ll remember this forever."

The Aramco Team Series is, as you can probably guess, a team tournament: three professionals are joined by one high-ranking amateur, and that quartet competes against other quartets. But the LET Aramco Team Series events also crown an individual winner, and Alison Lee was that in the Sotogrande tournament.

In the three-round tournament, Lee posted back-to-back 65s on the first two days. In the third round, she carded a 71 and won the individual title by five strokes. It's an unusual format in that the individual scores aren't displayed on on-course scoreboards during play, only the team scores, so Lee wasn't even aware at the time she sank her final putt that she won.

Lee was the No. 1 player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 16 weeks in 2013-14, and turned pro in 2014. She got off to a hot start with enough strong showings in her first year-and-a-half on the LPGA Tour that she was named to the 2015 Solheim Cup team. But she's had some struggles in later years, lost her card a couple times, had to go back to Q-School.

She's shown signs this year of getting back to where she was at the start of her LPGA career. And, playing for the first time in Spain, Alison Lee now has her first pro win and first LET victory.

LPGA Golfers Enjoy the Bahamas Beachside and Poolside

Social media gives us a glimpse into the lives of professional golfers the likes of which we could never have gotten a mere 10 years ago. One word tells you all you need to know: "selfie." And when LPGA players visit a tournament site such as, say the Bahamas, selfies sometimes involve bikinis and other swimsuits. The LPGA Tour plays this week at the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic. They are staying at the Atlantis Resort, which has a bevy of pools and other water features for them to enjoy; and are also right on the beach. Make that "beaches," since the resort is surrounded by sand and ocean, too. Below are a few of the swimsuit selfies LPGA golfers have shared on their social media accounts this week. First, Danielle Kang: Here are two showing Hee Young Park (left) and her sister Ju Young Park. Ju Young is an LPGA rookie in 2015.
