SANDWICH, ENGLAND | Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson may have been the main attraction at the start of their second practice round but the punters all knew about Min Woo Lee who was directly in front.
“What a 24 hours he’s had,” said one fellow to his friend. It was, of course, a reference to Lee’s €1,333,330 abrdn Scottish Open win in North Berwick on Sunday and the Open Championship place which went with it, along with the player’s unplanned rush to Sandwich.
Lee himself was struggling to believe what was going on. When, with all the TV and media interviews, he missed the charter plane that whisked all the other Open contenders down to Sandwich, he spent the night in Gullane, Scotland before being dispatched by private plane to Manston, England, on Monday morning. “I’ve never flown private before,” said the wide-eyed Australian.
