Minjee Lee's jump to the top three of the world will be seen later in Singapore when the HSBC Women's World Championship begins; she plays in the same group as the top two, Ariya Jutanugarn and Sung Hyun Park.
Lee, 22, told the media today that she "absolutely" had set her sights on world number 1.
But the Royal Fremantle product added that it had more process-oriented goals.
"I mean, it's in my mind, but I love more statistical goals that I like to meet, and in meeting this, I think it will eventually take me to world number 1", she said today
"So I really do not think so," Oh my God, I have to go to world number 1 like next week "I think that puts too much pressure on myself So I like to take every week like it comes and try to do my best every week. & # 39;
Lee, a four-time winner of the LPGA Tour, jumped from number 7 to number 3 after finishing second in Thailand last weekend.
When she asked him what she was most pleased about her attendance, she said, "What am I most satisfied with, probably my maturity level, I really know what I need and what works best for me. By looking for that a little bit, I have to establish a little more on Tour and I know where I stand and what I need to improve to try to reach the world number 1. & # 39;
Lee is in the last group today at 1.20 PM.
Fellow-Australians Su Oh and Sarah Jane Smith also play in the limited-field event at Sentosa Golf Club for a prize pool of $ US1.5 million.
