More On Min Woo Lee's Parents and Family Background

Min Lee belongs to a sporting family of four. His mother, Clara Lee, is also a golfer, and his dad, Sonam Lee, used to be a swimming instructor.

Some players like Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson have been banned from the PGA Tour but were seen teeing up in the first LIV event in London. Woo conceded about the golf world being "crazy right now" but has managed to distance himself from the greed of money and focus on getting better at his game.

He said in an interview, "There’s a couple of goals that I have. I want to be on the PGA Tour, and I want to get on that Presidents Cup team, and, with the other tour, I can’t do that. I’m not getting too ahead of myself; I know what I have to do to get better."

The Perth ace spent his tournament eve watching Tiger Wood's famous 2000 British Open triumph and woke up to the sound of Tiger's Victory at 4 am yesterday. He said, "It’s a weird story. I was watching Tiger in 2000 St Andrews before I closed the laptop at 8.30 pm and fell asleep, but it was playing when it was closed somehow. It woke me up at 4 am. It was a good wake-up call, I guess."
