Won Jun Lee (2017) commits to South Florida


South Florida head coach Steve Bradley has put together quite the one-two punch in his Class of 2017 recruiting class.

The Bulls already have a verbal commitment from Chile’s Joaquin Niemann, the world’s eighth-ranked amateur. And on Wednesday, they added one from Won Jun Lee of Wesley Chapel, Fla.

Lee, who is from Seoul, South Korea, announced the news early Thursday morning on his Facebook:

“Time to let everyone know that I verbally committed to play golf at USF,” Lee wrote. “I’m so excited for this opportunity, and I hope I can achieve the goal with the teammates. Couldn’t have done it without all the supporters!”

Lee is ranked fifth in the Golfweek/Sagarin Junior Rankings, third in the Class of 2017. He is the 79th-ranked amateur in the world. Among his accomplishments on the golf course: he is twice a quarterfinalist at the U.S. Junior Amateur, in 2015 and ’16; he advanced to the semis in 2015.
