Jeongeun Lee6 Facts

  1. Her father, a former truck driver, was paralyzed in an accident when she was just 4 years old. He has been wheelchair-bound since then.
  2. When she had joined the LPGA of Korea Tour in 2016, there were 5 other players with the same or similar names. It was then that she had decided to add ‘6’ at the end of her name to distinguish herself. In both 2017 and 2018, she was the leading money-winner on the LPGA of Korea Tour having won 4 events on the tour in 2017 and 2 in 2018.
  3. In her very first LPGA Tour event in 2017, she had finished in a tie for 5th place, at the U.S. Women’s Open. In November 2018, she had won the LPGA Q-Series and had joined the tour full-time in 2019.
  4. In June 2019, when she had won the U.S. Women’s Open by 2 strokes, it was not just her first major championship. It was also her first tournament win on the LPGA Tour. She thus became the 19th player in history to make the U.S. Women’s Open her first LPGA Tour victory.
  5. When she won the ‘LPGA Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year’ award in 2019, she had managed the feat with 5 events still remaining in the season. She had become the 13th Korean player to win the honor. She was also the 5 consecutive Korean golfer to achieve the feat following Jin Young Ko in 2018, Sung Hyun Park in 2017, In Gee Chun in 2016, and Sei Young Kim in 2015.
  6. Her fan club in South Korea is known as ‘Lucky 6’.
