MIN LEE NOT BOTHERED BY RUNNER-UP FINISH

She only surrendered one bogey in the final round of the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship, but Min Lee was far from disappointed in her 3-under par 69 performance on Sunday at Lake Merced Golf Club. The result is good for her first top-10 in her 93rd start of her LPGA Tour career.

“After she hit that shot [on No. 5], she left it short and very close to the hole [for eagle], and I knew she was going to make it because that was her day,” said Lee, who concluded the tournament at -12 overall. “The only thing I thought today was just play my game because I can’t control how she plays. She played really good and I’m happy for her. I’m practicing being in the position and trying to fight for it. Hopefully one day will come true.

“It’s not a tough pill to swallow. It’s definitely good to me and her because she has great experience, and me too. This is not really bothering me because it’s a good week. What else should I say, right? I think I played good today and obviously she played much better on the front. I’m not going to punish myself. It was a great week.”
