European Tour: Shenzhen International- Soomin Lee


Powered by National Club Golfer


In what was an eventful final round, Soomin Lee held his nerve and went wire-to-wire to claim his maiden European Tour title at Genzon Golf Club.

With severe weather conditions the event went into a 5th day. Lee was not alone at the top of the leaderboard, Alexander Levy, Lee Slattery, Joost Luiten, Brandon Stone and Scott Hend were all within one shot of the lead and were looking to take the crown.

The South Korean started the day in a tie for the lead, but a birdie on the 16th and an eagle at the 17th, Lee pulled himself away from the chasing pack and give himself a 2-shot victory. After disappointment earlier in the season in Malaysia, Lee now joins the winners circle after only his sixth start.

“I got a big chance in Malaysia but I didn’t make it because I was really, really nervous. Now I made it,” he said.

“Yesterday I was really, really nervous. We had a lot of break times and then played again so that’s really good for me and I just thought about my golf and then competed until I could do it.
