    Golfer Lee Jeong-eun will compete on the LPGA Tour in the U.S. next year, her management agency said on Wednesday.

    "She came to the decision thanks to the generous support of her parents and sponsor Daebang Construction," the agency said in a press release.

    Lee is now looking for a place in the U.S. to start training there.

    Lee, who won six titles in a season for the first time last year, topped the KLPGA Tour's money list with the lowest scoring average this year.

    After winning the LPGA Tour's inaugural Q-Series earlier this month, she earned a spot on the Tour for next year. But she spent some time considering family issues before finally deciding to move to the U.S.

    "My priority is to settle down there. I'll do my best to focus on that rather than pursuing wins or setting records," she said.
