Minjee Lee shot a 2-under 70 to reach 19 under and claim a hard-fought victory at the 2022 LPGA Founders Cup.

The win was the seventh of the Aussie’s LPGA Tour career, and the first since her maiden major win at the 2021 Evian Championship.

“I fought really hard this whole day, and to finish with a couple of birdies and just to come out with a win is just really special. I’m really happy,” said Lee, who finished at -19 overall, two strokes ahead of fellow major champion Lexi Thompson (-17).
