Late Lee heroics keep web dream alive

Min Woo Lee made a barnstorming finish in Texas.

If Perth & # 39; s Min Woo Lee will eventually go to the Web.Com Tour next year, he will look back on half an hour of greenside glare today as a reason.

Lee, 20, today won part of the last available place via the second phase of Q-School at TPC Craig Ranch in Texas with three enchanting up-and-downs to break the heart of five spectators who needed him to just one make a mistake to keep their hopes on progress alive.

His conclusion with one par over 73, while he was clothed with a few costly mistakes, left him nine in total and right on the figure that goes to the Q-school final in Chandler, Arizona, from 6-9 December, when he will be accompanied by Victorian Brett Coletta, who progressed last week.

But on so many occasions, Lee's plans were dead in the water today.

The Royal Fremantle member, currently number 7 in the amateur world ranking, bogeyed the third and doubled the fourth to immediately outside the dividing line.

A birdie on the fifth was more than cleared by another doubled on the 10th and the Western Australian looked deep into problems.

A birdie on 12 regained some momentum, but Lee was still two shots drifting of safety before he faltered to 4m of 125m and the birdie putt on the 16th drilled.

However, everything seemed lost again when his tee-shot ended 20 meters via the par-three 17th green. Again, he made a beautiful up and down par to leave him with a birdie the last to avoid any prospect of a playoff.

But the whole day it was not easy for the likeable Lee, who was in trouble again when he blocked his ride in the sand on the final paragraph five

He settled at about 70, and threw calmly to 5 m and again drew the well down to the audible disbelief of the viewers at eight o'clock.

"I have been pumped properly," Lee said.

"That was great, can not wait for the final."

Lee is now faced with the difficult decision whether or not to bring a flight home to play the Australian Open this week.
