PEORIA, Ariz. – Calgary’s Jaclyn Lee wrote a chapter in history on Monday, breaking an Ohio State school record with a 64 at the Westbrook Spring Invite, collecting her second NCAA victory in the process.

Lee, a Team Canada National Amateur Squad member, marched to the tune of seven birdies accompanied by an eagle on the par-5 8th hole, finishing at 8 under par for the day on the Westbrook Village Golf Course.

The 20-year-old junior finished at 19 under par in the 36-hole event, two strokes clear of runner-up Kaitlin Milligan of Oklahoma State.

Lee’s first NCAA victory of her career came in 2017 when she split medallist honours at the East & West Match Play.

The former Alberta Ladies Amateur champion paced the Buckeyes to a 2nd place finish, one stroke behind Oklahoma. She was named as the Big Ten Conference Golfer of the Week for her efforts in Arizona.

In her sophomore season, Lee led the Buckeyes in scoring average as well as total finishes in the top-5, earning her a selection to the All-Big Ten Second Team.
