Made his major debut at the 2014 U.S. Open, but will make his first appearance in The Open at St Andrews.

Lee did earn qualification last year - only to later withdraw - as one of the top 50 in the world rankings.

Two events were largely responsible for that. He captured his maiden PGA Tour success at May’s AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas, where a closing 66 enabled him to overtake Sam Burns and win by three to take the final place in the PGA Championship.

That moved him up from 137th to 59th and came three months after he was runner-up to Brooks Koepka at the Waste Management Open, Koepka chipping in for eagle at the penultimate hole to win by one.

This May he just held off Jordan Spieth for a successful defence of the Byron Nelson title and with it moved to a career-high 41st.

He has twice lifted the Korea Open title and is also a two-time winner on the Japanese Tour, first in 2012 as a rookie professional and then again in 2015.

As an amateur won the 2009 Toytota World Junior Cup and the following year was part of the South Korean side that took gold at the Asian Games.
