WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia (Hank Kurz, Jr./AP) — Minjee Lee didn’t get the dousing with champagne often afforded a winner on the LPGA Tour.

Instead, she signed autographs and posed for photos with fans behind the 18th green on the Kingsmill Resort’s River Course, waiting to see if her two-shot lead would hold up through the final pairing.

When it did, the surprise of victory was more than enough for the 18-year-old Australian.

"I didn’t think this moment would come this year, so I’m stoked to have won," Lee said after overcoming a three-putt bogey on her first hole in the morning with a pair of clinching pars.

"Just because I won in my rookie season, I feel like I could probably do it again."

WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia (Hank Kurz, Jr./AP) — Minjee Lee played a five-hole stretch in 5-under to open a four-stroke lead when final-round play was suspended because of darkness in the LPGA Tour’s Kingsmill Championship.

After making an eagle on the par-5 15th to cap the five-hole run, the 18-year-old Australian was on the par-4 16th when the horn sounded. She hit her approach to the green, but opted to mark the ball and finish the hole when play resumes at 7 a.m. Monday on Kingsmill Resort’s River Course.

“Actually, I just was kind of like, ‘I’m pretty close,’ but I wasn’t really sure where all the other scores were,” Minjee Lee said of her mindset during the delay. “I just kind of played my own game. My putter was really hot for those couple of holes. Hopefully, they’ll roll in tomorrow, too.”
