Back in 2018, K. H. Lee stated two key aims that he wanted to achieve in his golf career. His statement was extremely eyecatching and the golf world took notice.
"I have several goals in my life. The first is to become the number one golfer in the world and the second is to become the sexiest golfer in the world."
Although Lee was still playing on the Korn Ferry Tour at this stage, it was a sign of his immense confidence. Well, the PGA Tour thought it was finally time to give Lee one of his career ambitions.
When the South Korean arrived on to the driving range at The Summit Club, he went to his bay and noticed a sign that said "Sexiest golfer", with the CJ Cup insignia on top.

As you can tell, Lee was delighted to see that he finally earned the label that he has always wanted. He comically offered to take his clothes off, but he admitted it was too cold even in the Nevada desert for that.
We are yet to see if the 30-year-old will become the best golfer in the world, but he is certainly part of an impressive crop of South Korean golfers that are taking the PGA Tour by storm.
In May, he secured his first PGA Tour victory at the AT&T Byron Nelson. After his tied 25th finish at the CJ Cup, Lee has risen to his career-high of 57th in the world rankings.
The man from Seoul didn't quite manage to reach the Tour Championship in 2021, but having only joined the tour in 2019, he has already earned over $5 million.
He, Sungjae Im and Si Woo Kim are leading a great charge for South Korea in America and it would be great to see the world's sexiest golfer add another win or two to his record.
