IOWA CITY, Iowa – Jaewook Lee of Langley, British Columbia, Canada, signed a National Letter of Intent to play golf at the University of Iowa next fall, head coach Tyler Stith announced Friday.
“We are very excited to welcome Jaewook to the Hawkeye golf family,” said Stith. “He has an exceptional work ethic on the golf course and in the classroom.  We are excited about his potential and look forward to him joining the team.”
Lee, who attends Walnut Grove Secondary School, is a four-time state qualifier who helped his team to a conference championship in 2016, finishing third overall. Lee finished in the top-10 individually at the state championship in each of the past four years. In 2015, Lee registered his best finish, tying for seventh overall.
“I felt I needed to go to the University of Iowa when I talked with Coach Stith,” said Lee. “He is dedicated to improving and strengthening the program to a higher level.”
Lee is ranked 73rd in the international AJGA Polo Boy’s Golf Rankings and 42nd in the class of 2017. He finished second at the AJGA Heather Furr Classic and third at the CJGA Western Championship in 2016.
Lee registered his best finish of the 2016 season, an eight-under par 67, at the AAA High School Delta Police Championship to claim medalist honors and guide his team to a first-place finish. Lee recorded a low round of 67 during his junior campaign, winning the British Columbia Men’s Amateur Zone Team Competition that same year.
“I love the campus, facilities, and especially the atmosphere around the school,” added Lee. “People are energetic and supportive. I feel I’m part of the team and Hawkeye family. I look forward to starting my career as an Iowa Hawkeye.”
Lee also excels off the course. He has been named to the Honor Roll for the past four years.
