What is 6 on the surname of Jeongeun Lee6, winner of the US Open?

The South Korean was proclaimed champion of the US Open women. At 23, it was the best career success. Along with his last name, he has accompanied a differential number.

South Korean Jeongeun Lee6 (23 years old) made history last Sunday after winning the US Open of golf, which was held in Charleston (South Carolina, USA), with 278 strokes, two fewer than the second classified: Americans Angel Yin and Lexi Thompson and South Korean So Yeaon Ryula. In this way, Lee6 gets its first major in the women's circuit and the LPGA Tour. A sixth place in the 2018 Evian Championship and a fifth in the Women's Open was his biggest success so far.

The name Jeongeun Lee is very common in South Korea. For that reason, the LPGA (Association of professional golfers) adapted by putting a number to each to differentiate the players who have the same. Upon arrival in the United States, Lee6 maintained it, with nicknames like 'Hot6' and 'Lucky6'. This was so that from his country, family and friends could recognize it more easily.

According to published Golfweek, 40% of the population of South Korea is called Kim, Lee or Park.
