Angela Lee is currently a freshman at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where she competes on the varsity golf team. Her path to Georgetown was filled with competitive success that any college golf coach would love to see. She is a winner on the prestigious American Junior Golf Association Tour and was invited to many high-level invitationals on that tour. In addition, she was the 2021 North Jersey Player of the Year, was a four-year letter winner on her Immaculate Heart High School team in the Township of Washington, New Jersey, serving as the captain the last to years. She is also academically accomplished as a member of the National Science Honor Society, a four-year honor roll student and earned a 3.9 grade point average.
Angela commented, “Golf is a sport that has taught me valuable lessons that are applicable in the real world. One of the most important lessons that I learned from golf is personal responsibility and integrity. Golf is a sport that relies heavily on individual honesty and adherence to the rules. Additionally, golf teaches me valuable problem-solving skills, as I must always analyze the course and make strategic decisions to succeed. Golf also requires mental toughness, with players needing to maintain focus, manage emotions and overcome setbacks.”
According to her coach, USGTF Master Golf Teaching Professional Sungmin Baek, “At seven years old, she came to me for lessons after her mother informed me of her interest in the sport. It quickly became apparent that Angela had a natural talent for golf, particularly for someone her age. Watching her progress from how to grip and hold a golf club to becoming a Division I golfer at a highly prestigious university has been an incredible experience for both of us. As her instructor for over 11 years now, I continue to be amazed by Angela’s resilience and hardworking nature.”
