Minjee Lee has been eliminated at the quarterfinal stage of the Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play event in Las Vegas.
Lee won her round of 16 match against England’s Mel Reid on Saturday morning but against Ariya Jutanugarn it was a different story with the Thai golfer always in charge and running out the winner by a 5&4 margin after leading 5 up through ten holes.
Lee was 6 over when her match finished compared the 4 under she was when finishing her morning match.
In that morning match, Lee defeated Reid by 5&4.
In tomorrow’s semi-finals, Ariya Jutanugarn takes on American Ali Ewing while Sophia Popov meets Shanshan Feng to find the winner of the inaugural staging of the event at the famed Shadow Creek.
