The tournament, at Carton House in Maynooth, Ireland, consists of four rounds of stroke play. A country may field a team of two or three players, with the two lowest scores in each round constituting the team score for the round. The team with the lowest four-day total will earn the Espirito Santo Trophy.
Lee, who last week finished in a tie for 16th in the opening stage at LPGA Q-School and earlier this month advanced to the quarterfinals of the U.S. Women’s Amateur, was a 2018 WGCA second team All-American and first team All-Big Ten selection. The medalist of the 2018 Big Ten Championships, Lee shattered the previous school scoring record and ranked 11th nationally at 71.14, breaking Allison Hanna’s previous Ohio State record of 72.58 set in 2003-04.
