Did Min Woo Lee just dethrone Bryson DeChambeau as the new king of golf content?

Let Him Cook! And he has done just that. Mine Woo Lee cooked and served once again on social media. The rising PGA Tour star has become a social media sensation for golf fans as the 25-year-old consistently delivers entertaining content. This time, too, he hasn’t held back either.

As the top PGA Tour pros gear up for the Genesis Scottish Open, Lee has followed their suit, but in his signature style. The Australian native posted an impressive clip on X (previously Twitter), which showed a creative transition from a man named ‘Ally’ getting hit by a bus to Lee getting up from the grass and hitting a perfect drive. He captioned the post with a message for his fans to safely cross the roads and said, “Don’t be like Ally. Look left and right before your cross roads.” 

The 30-second video shows some of the most incredible shots Lee has ever taken as he prepares to be at the Renaissance Club and win once again. The Aussie pro won the Scottish Open back in 2021 when it was not a co-sanctioned event by the PGA Tour. That was his second victory in the European League and the event that catapulted Lee as one of the up-and-coming talents in the golf world.

Will he be able to outdo his previous performance and once again lift the trophy? While that remains to be seen, the golf world is already cheering and praising the 25-year-old.

Golf fans love Min Woo Lee’s epic transition

Just a few weeks ago, Bryson DeChambeau became a fan-favorite, not only because of his victory at the U.S. Open and impressive finishes before that but also because of how he interacted with fans and shared good content on his YouTube and social media channels. Similarly, Min Woo Lee has been captivating fans with his short clips. With more than 600k followers on Instagram and X combined, Lee could be assumed to be an expert in the social media game, which earned him the title “King of Content.” by one of his fans.

Over the last few weeks, Lee has consistently posted updates from the events he played. Whether it be the last birdie at the Charles Schwab Challenge or the gigantic roar at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the fans have been loving the creativity of Lee. This user laughed and said, “Can always depend on this guy to produce top tier content.”

Although the Aussie pro has been an exceptional golfer, Lee does struggle a bit while hitting the fairways. On the PGA Tour Driving Accuracy Percentage stat, the 25-year-old is 77th on the list with only 61.53% of fairways met. Even at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, he struggled to meet the fairways and dropped in the rankings, though he finished T2. Perhaps that’s why this fan cheered Lee and asked him, “Go well, Min Woo! Keep it on the fairway!” Lee’s swing has been one of the best on the PGA Tour. The Aussie pro has been consistently among the leaders on the Driving Distance and this year too, he took the third rank. The backswing makes Lee stand out as an incredible golfer and promises a better score than the field. Impressed with his swing, this fan said, “You swing that thing like coiled up Cobra! Go bite ’em!” 

After playing the Genesis Scottish Open, Lee would be preparing to play at the Royal Troon, just a few miles away from the historical Renaissance Club. The 25-year-old qualified for the 152nd Open Championship as he was in the top 30 of the 2023 Race to Dubai Standings and ranks inside the top 50 at the OWGR at 31st rank. It will be two back-to-back weeks for Lee and he would need all the motivation for it. Thus, this user praised his post and said, “Brilliant! 😂 The best of luck over the next two weeks!” As the former winner of the Scottish Open, the Aussie pro may have a better understanding of the event and, with his perfect swing, may surpass the top PGA Tour pros.
