The year 2022 has been the season for the Australian golfer, Minjee Lee. She has burst into the limelight after winning the Cognizant Founders Cup and the US Women’s Open. She is a treat to the eye, with an astonishing ball-striking technique.

If LPGA track records are to be taken into consideration, Lee leads in every category of the tour. According to an article by Golf Digest , from 100-125 yards, 125-150, 150-175, to 175-200 yards, she remains unbeatable. She would have also led the PGA Tour in over all four of those distances, according to Will Hasket’s tweet.

Lee’s impressive performance has put her on par with the legend Tiger Woods in the era of ShotLink. Clearly, Lee has put herself way ahead in the race of best-iron-player debate. Although Lydia Ko was backed by her stunning 2.5 strokes, which were half a stroke more than Lee’s, nothing could beat her stunning performances.
