Stanford’s Lee pursues colleague Valenzuela in turning professional
The last domino has fallen.
Five school players finished the LPGA’s Q-Series not long ago, and up until Tuesday four of the five – USC’s Jennifer Chang, Florida State’s Frida Kinhult, Florida’s Sierra Brooks and Stanford’s Albane Valenzuela – have reported their choices to forego the rest of their school eligibilities and turn professional.
Presently, Stanford senior Andrea Lee has settled on her choice, disclosing to Golf Channel’s Steve Burkowski on Tuesday evening that she has chosen to join her friends on the LPGA in time for the season-opening occasion in late January.

Lee, the third-positioned player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, contended just once this fall for the Cardinal, winning the Molly Intercollegiate to establish the program precedent with nine singular titles. She then tied for 30th at the eight-round Q-Series at Pinehurst to bolt up her card for 2020 and all the more as of late turned down a welcome to go to the U.S. Curtis Cup practice session in December.
“I’m past eager to play expertly one year from now and seek after my long lasting dream since I was five years of age,” Lee said on Instagram. “I can’t thank my folks enough for all that they’ve done – for every one of the penances, love, and perpetual help. Everything that we’ve experienced has paid off and I can hardly wait to begin the following section of my life. 2020 here we come.”
