Min Woo Lee will tee it up on home soil in back-to-back events after being confirmed to play in the 2023 ISPS HANDA Australian Open at The Australian Golf Club and The Lakes Golf Club from November 30 to December 3.
The 25-year-old, one of world golf's most exciting young talents, was already locked in for the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland Golf Club which is held one week in advance.
Lee, an ISPS ambassador, finished in the top five at both events at the start of the ongoing DP World Tour season last year before finishing as runner-up to Victor Perez in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January. He sits fifth in the Race to Dubai Rankings in partnership Rolex.
The World Number 47 has also starred on US soil, registering a top five at the US Open and top 10s in The PLAYERS Championship and Travelers Championship on the PGA TOUR.
A two-time winner on the DP World Tour, which includes victory in front of his home fans at the Vic Open in 2020, he will now return to Sydney for the first time since 2019.
Golf Australia CEO James Sutherland said Lee’s flare and outgoing personality would be a big hit when he heads home for the Australian summer.
“Min Woo Lee is one of the most exciting golfers in the world, and we are thrilled to see him back,” Sutherland said.
“A fantastic ambassador for our game, Min Woo continues to take the game head-on and this approach resonates strongly with his growing number of fans here and overseas."
Lee joins DP World Tour and PGA Tour winner Lucas Herbert and LPGA Tour star Stephanie Kyriacou at the ISPS HANDA Australian Open.
This year's event will again feature a joint tournament format that will bring fans closer than ever to their favourite men and women golfers, playing for different titles on the same course, at the same time.
The men's event - won by Adrian Meronk last year - is co-sanctioned by the PGA Tour of Australasia and DP World Tour, while both Australian Opens will carry a minimum of $3.4 million prize money.
The tournament will also feature the fourth edition of the Australian All Abilities Championship, which assembles the top World Ranking for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD) players supported by global partners EDGA and G4D Tour.
