Major boost for Lee ahead of Tokyo tripSports | REUTERS 27 Jul 2021
Australian golfer Minjee Lee goes to her second Olympics after shedding the tag of "best player without a Major" by claiming the Evian title in France.
She won a playoff against South Korea's Lee Jeong Eun to become only the fourth Australian woman to win a Major after Karrie Webb, Jan Stephenson and Hannah Green, who join her in Tokyo.
Lee, 25, started the final day seven shots adrift.
She munched on a nectarine to "chill" for the playoff then put her approach to the 18th within three meters while Korean Lee found water.
