Jang Hyun Lee (Year 12)

Winner of NZ Amateur Golf Open
Year 12 student Jang Hyun (Eric) Lee has won the 2019 New Zealand Amateur NZ Golf Open to claim the biggest win of his young career!

Eric is now part of a prestigious blend of Professional and Amateur golfers who competed in the 36 hole New Zealand Open Pro-Am Championship last weekend in Queenstown.

The tournament included a minimum field of 140 amateurs playing amongst 140 professional golfers competing for the New Zealand Open title.

Eric has only been in New Zealand for the past four months and is a member of local Titirangi Golf Course with a +6 handicap. He says the courses in New Zealand are “pure” and he thoroughly enjoyed the competition, held over two picturesque courses, the Millbrook Resort and The Hills.

Following in the footsteps of his father, an avid golfer in his own right, Eric began playing golf in Korea at the grand old age of 6! He hopes to go on to be successful in the Pro PGA Tour Series – China.
