Yuri Lee and her Hole-in One Certificate

Yuri was competing in the six years old and under division when she made the perfect swing. She has eclipsed fellow New Zealand golfer Lydia Ko to Hole in One status by more than a decade, Lydia hitting her first ace at the Rio Olympics aged 19.

A very proud dad Mario has this to say about his talented daughter;

“She had tried all sorts of sports but didn’t really enjoy anything until she picked up a golf club.”

“We put a club in her hands one day and she loved it.”

“She is the one who want to be out there, she just loves it.”

“It was quite surprising really.”

“It’s unusual for a six year-old, she has a very calm character.”

Other major achievements by Yuri include coming second in her age group at the FCG International, third in her age group at the IMG World Championships, and being the youngest player in the under eight division of the IJGA Tournament in Las Vegas where she finished sixth.
