Lee6 continues South Korea's run by winning LPGA Rookie of the Year

Jeongeun Lee6 has officially clinched the LPGA’s Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year Award.

It marks the fifth consecutive season a player from South Korea has won the honor, the eighth time in the last 11 years and the 13th time overall.

With her tie for eighth at the Volunteers of America Classic last weekend, Lee6 can’t be caught in the Rolex Rookie of the Year points race.

“I’m part of that [South Korean awards] list, and I am so proud and honored,” Lee6 said. “This is all thanks to those players who came before me, who have all given me so much advice.
