When Min Woo met Tiger

It's been an eventful few days for Perth's Lee siblings.

After Minjee Lee’s win on Sunday on the LPGA Tour, brother Min Woo Lee was lucky enough to get some pointers from the great Tiger Woods.

Min Woo is currently in the US contesting the prestigious Sage Valley Junior Invitational, played at Sage Valley Golf Club located nearby Augusta National, which hosts the US Masters.

Just after his arrival in his practice round, he slam dunked his 2-iron on the 220m par-3 7th for a hole in one.

The following day, he was treated to a 30 minute one-on-one with Tiger Woods and four-time PGA Tour winner Notah Begay III.

Like any golf fanatic who gets within 100m of the great Tiger Woods, Min Woo took to Facebook to express his joy.

"Seems like Tiger Woods is back baby!!!!! An absolute privilege to meet Tiger Woods & Notah Begay III, it's not everyday where these men give you a lesson for 30 minutes 1 on 1."

After the opening round, Lee is in a tie for 10th on 1-over par with a round that features four birdies and five bogeys.

It's Lee's third visit to the US, where he has enjoyed plenty of success, winning the Aaron Baddeley Junior International and finishing as the co-Golf Medallist at the Spirit International.

Meanwhile, on the west coast, Lee's sister Minjee Lee shot 1-over in the opening round of the Swinging Skirts in San Francisco as she looks to go back to back after her win last week in Hawaii.
