KH Lee is targeting his second PGA Tour victory with a repeat win at this weekend’s AT&T Byron Nelson tournament.
The 30-year-old golfer, who once said being named the “sexiest golfer alive” is one of his biggest ambitions, started Friday’s second round with 1-under par over four holes. He is currently in third place at 9-under.
The AT&T Byron Nelson runs at TCP Craig Ranch in Texas through Sunday.
Lee, who is from South Korea, said back in 2018 that he has “multiple goals in life,” according to Golf.com. He not only wanted to be the best golfer in the world, but also to be known as the “sexiest”.
“The first is to become the No. 1 golfer in the world,” Lee said through an interpreter. “And the second is to become the world’s No. 1 sexiest golfer.”
Not surprisingly, Lee’s comments took on a life of their own as the current 88th golfer in the world later reflected on the ordeal for the PGA Tour’s website.
“When I won in May, my goals went viral as a lot of golfers were amused by this story,” Lee said in October 2021, referencing his earlier comments after winning the AT&T Byron National last spring.
For Lee, “being sexy means being a muscular guy.”
“It’s in my dream but not quite possible in reality. I want to be muscular, but I love to eat. For example, I try not to eat dinner when I have a big lunch, but when dinner time comes I’m usually hungry again. I will train hard, but I will also eat hard,” he added.
Lee earned the coveted title last fall – so to speak – when “sexiest golfer” replaced his name at the Summit Club for the CJ Cup.
