January 24th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Former Mustang Joon Lee has earned his Asian Professional Golf Tour player’s card. Lee played not only very well but very consistently in making the difficult run through the various qualifying rounds known as Q-school. In the final tournament of Q-School, Lee fired rounds of 67-71-71-72 to finish tied for 12th place; that’s out of a record 599 entries when Q-school started. Lee was only 7 shots behind winner David Lipsky who fired rounds of 72-65-69-68.

The Asian Tour is the only recognized PGA Tour in the Asian theater. The Asian Tour sanctions between 28 and 30 events per year with a total purse exceeding $39 million. Several tournaments draw the top players from around the world including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickleson and many top European PGA players. Former Asian Tour players now competing on the PGA Tour include Y. E. Yang, K. J. Choi and Charlie Wi.

Joon player for WNMU for 2 years in 2008-9 and 2009-10. He had a career scoring average of just over 73 and recorded 7 top 10 finishes before he moved on to NMSU and won the prestigious Herb Wimberly Invitational. Lee of course credits WNMU Mustang Coach Kent Beatty with teaching him the intricacies of the game and the keys to winning tournaments.
