Minjee Lee Wins Third Career LPGA Event Using New Cleveland Golf RTX-3 Wedges

(HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA) – Srixon, Cleveland Golf and XXIO would like to congratulate staffer Minjee Lee for winning the Blue Bay LPGA over the weekend at Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Course in Hainan Island, China. The 20-year-old Australian made a deft up-and-down birdie on the par-5 18th hole to win by one stroke, clinching her second victory of 2016 and third career LPGA Tour triumph. After seeing her six-stroke lead halfway through the event erased heading into the final round, Lee showed steely nerves in shaking off a bogey on the par-3 17th hole to make the closing birdie and finish with a 2-under-par 70.

“It was a good fight out there, and I fought to the end,” Lee said. “[On 18] I thought to myself, ‘I need to make birdie here.’ I just put myself in good spots and then I ended up making birdie. Just stuck to my game plan.”

Lee earned $315,000 for the win, climbing to 10th on the LPGA official money list with $1,164,514 and 15th in the Rolex Rankings.

This marks the first LPGA Tour victory for the new Cleveland Golf RTX-3 wedges. Lee has three RTX-3 Tour Raw wedges in the bag: 50° V-MG, 54° V-MG and 58° V-LG. The new RTX-3 wedges feature three innovations to help players get closer to the hole than any wedge Cleveland has ever made: Feel Balancing Technology, V Sole grinds, and the third-generation Rotex Face.
