Minji Lee of Australia poses with the trophy after winning the US Women’s Open.
Even after winning her US Open on Monday, Minji Lee is still at the top.
Mina Harige, 26, of Pine Needles, North Carolina, won the US Women’s Open in four strokes.
Lee closed with an even-par 71 to finish at 13-under 271, and even flirted with the 16-under tournament record set by Julie Inkster at Old Waverly in 1999.

I’m talking TodayLee described the victory as “quite cursed.”
“It’s pretty special, I mean I still can’t believe it and it’s still sinking,” he said.
“It’s a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to win the United States since I was very young, so now it seems really amazing to me.
Lee credits his victory for improving his putty.
“I’ve been working on all parts of my game but for a month now I’ve been working on my putty a bit more and it seems to be a payment so it’s nice to see everything come together,” he said.
Coming from Perth, Lee Harton became the first Aussie winner of the S Sample Trophy after Carrie Webb won her second consecutive US Open title in 2001.
Closing a childhood dream, Lee said he is now ready to shift his focus to the next challenge.
“Now I can really reset my goals and move on to the next one,” he said.
At the height of his career, Lee shook his head and replied: “No, I’m not going to retire yet.”
Coming soon, Lee will compete in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, which starts on June 23, before she tries to defend her title at the Evian Championship later this month.
