Lee earned a spot on the Korean Tour with ranking points.
South Korea’s only professional golfer with autism spectrum disorder, Lee Seung-min, will compete in the Bizplay Electronics Open at Cosmos Rings from April 14-17. For the first time, he will be competing on his own through the ranking system rather than as an invitee.
Lee earned his professional status on the Korean Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Tour in 2017 and has played in 31 Korean Tour events as an invitee. After making his first cut at the DB Insurance Promi Open in 2018, Lee made four more cuts at the 2022 SK Telecom Open, the 2023 Golf Zone Open in Jeju and the KB Financial Live Championship. At the KB Financial Livechampionship, he posted his best career finish (tied for 37th).
Lee’s accomplishments are a result of the support and encouragement of those around him. To prepare for his challenge to win the inaugural U.S. Adaptive Open last year, Lee gained experience as a testimonial invitee in eight tournaments and was rewarded with a trophy.
This year, after finishing runner-up at the second U.S. Adaptive Open, Lee has another goal in mind. After reaching the final stage of the KPGA QT last year and finishing tied for 83rd, Lee earned a spot on the Korean Tour in the second half of the year by finishing 39th on the money list in the tournaments he played 토토사이트 at the invitation of the tournament’s sponsors. After the Bizplay Electronics Open, Lee will also compete in the 2023 iMBank Open.
“I’m grateful to the people who gave me so many opportunities to participate in competitions and supported me, and I feel like I’ve gone from being an intern lawyer to a full-time lawyer, just like in ‘Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo’. I want to train harder in the future and do better to meet the expectations of those who helped me.”
As for his future goals, he said, “I want to work hard in the remaining competitions and get good results to go directly to the Korean Tour QT Final Stage.” “I will work hard to become a player who can do better today than yesterday, and next year than this year,” he said.
