Perth’s Minjee Lee is on track to add a second victory of 2021 when she takes a one shot lead into the final round of the Korean LPGA Tour’s Hana Financial Group Championship at the Pocheon Adonis Country Club in Pocheon in Korea.

Lee, who is currently ranked 7th in the Rolex World Ranking, added a third round of 67 to edge ahead of locals, Ga Eun Song and Su Ji Kim, in the event sponsored by her long-term sponsors, the Hana Bank of Korea.

Just last week, Lee finished runner-up in an LPGA Tour event in Arkansas, that coming after a break of one month to recharge the batteries and the rest has proven beneficial with her near miss last week and now this impressive follow up.

No doubt playing the A$1.75 million Australian event due to her arrangements with Hana Bank, Lee’s involvement in the event means she misses this week’s Shoprite event in New Jersey on the LPGA Tour.

Lee is using the services of Korean based Australian caddie, Dean Herden, who has enjoyed prolific success with Korean golfers in the past having caddied for players such as So Yeon Ryu when she was successful in the US Women’s Open and was on the bag when Jin Young Ko won the Australian Women’s Open.

New Zealand’s Lydia Ko, another who is playing the event as a result of her commercial arrangement with the Hana organisation, is just three off the lead and tied for 7th.
