WEDNESDAY 27.4.16 SUBSCRIBE T If you see him on the course, cheer him on! I told him I would try and round up some home support for him he most recent winner on the European Tour, Soomin Lee, has confirmed that he will tee it up at this year's Irish Open. Lee, who claimed his first European Tour victory at the Shenzen International in only his sixth start is continuing to develop into a world class tal- ent, with many in Korea tipping him for much more success. He has also picked up a T-2 as well as a 3rd place finish from his other 5 starts on the Europe- an Tour and should have won the Malaysian Championship in February, but for a late col- lapse, which he admitted later was down to nerves. He has certainly witnessed the highs and lows of the game over the past few months as just over a year ago he was ranked 1529th in the world, but with his recent win in China topping off a very successful start to 2016, Lee is now ranked 75th. Having followed the progress of the Korean for roughly a year, including tipping him in Malay- sia and China at triple figure odds, I'm convinced this kid will be right up there with the best in no time. Unlike some other professionals, Lee has openly stated that Rio is his top priority. If he continues his current form at the K Club, he will definite- ly be one to watch. He is very excited to be making the trip to Ireland, but not just to make up the numbers. If you see him on the course, cheer him on! I told him I would try and round up some home support for him!"
