Lee wins in Tasmania

Western Australian and National Squad member Minjee Lee added to her impressive trophy haul in 2011 with victory at the Elvie Whitesides 72 hole Stroke Play Championship in Tasmania. The 15-year-old carded rounds of 72, 68, 78 and 74 (292) at Launceston Golf Club to edge out fellow National Squad member and Tasmanian local Ashlee Dewhurst. Dewhurst returned rounds of 71, 70, 76 and 76 for her five-over-par total of 293. It was a reverse of the result in March at Victoria Golf Club when Dewhurst beat Lee on the 20th hole to win the Srixon Australian Amateur Championship. Both Lee and Dewhurst will be Tier 1 National Squad in 2012.
