Australian Minjee Lee has jumped to a new career-high world ranking of No. 3.
Perth & # 39; s Lee, just 22 years old, sits just behind superstars Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand and Sung Hyun Park of South Korea in the final rankings.
She jumped in four places in the rankings after she finished second in the Honda LPGA Thailand tournament in Pattaya last weekend, where her eagle pit on the par-five 18th hole for a play-off with Korea's Amy Yang stopped only inches shorter than the hole
Already the Greg Norman medalist for 2018 and the first woman to win the award for the best golfer in Australia, Lee has won four times in the LPGA Tour around the world since he became a professional, after he went through the elite program & # 39; s from Golf Western Australia and Golf Australia.
Last season on the LPGA Tour she won the Volvik championship in May and she scored a remarkable 13 top-10 finishes.
Queenslander Cameron Smith is also high in the rankings for men in place 24 after his sixth place in the World Golf Championship Mexico event in Mexico City.
