World number three Minjee Lee says her game is in good shape going into this week’s ANA Inspiration in California. The 22-year-old Australian will be hoping to break her major duck at Mission Hills Country Club and become the first player from Down Under to win one of the ‘big five’ events since Karrie Webb in 2006.
Lee, whose last victory came at the 2018 Volvik Championship, has shown some promising form this season and she finished second in both the Honda LPGA Thailand and HSBC Women’s World Championship. Having turned professional in 2014, the Perth-born star says she has some good experience behind her now and this has helped all aspects of her game improve over the years.
“I am more consistent with every part of my game,” Lee was quoted as saying by Golf Australia. “This is my fifth year on Tour and I just know what I am doing a little better.” Lee also believes her accuracy off the tee could play a big part in helping her challenge for the ANA title on the Dinah Shore Tournament Course. She added: “I am usually pretty strong in my ball-striking and you need to be able to drive it well.”
