Who is Andrea Lee?

She is a two-time LPGA Tour victor, but who is Andrea Lee? Check out our player profile on the American here…

 

Andrea Lee is one of the newest LPGA Tour winners, having claimed her maiden win in 2022, ahead of her Solheim Cup debut a year later.

The American played collegiate golf at Stanford University, and was one of the best amateur golfers of the decade. She spent a total of 17 weeks at No.1 on the World Amateur Golf Rankings. During her time at college, she became the most decorated golfer in Stanford history, setting a school record with nine individual titles. Lee won several individual accolades for her performances over her four-year stint.

Her professional career began in late 2019, and she immediately qualified for an LPGA Tour card for the next year. She had to wait until 2022 for her first victory. That came at the Casino Del Sol Golf Classic on the Epsom Tour, before she then won on the LPGA Tour five months later, victorious at the Portland Classic.

Lee made her debut in the Solheim Cup in 2023, as one of Stacy Lewis’ captain’s picks for the competition. Lee had previously played in the Junior Ryder Cup, Junior Solheim Cup and Curtis Cup for Team USA. Her best major finish came at the 2024 US Women’s Open, where she finished in a tie for 3rd.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
