About Ryan Lee
From the Northern Junior website:
“Parents and friends knew Ryan as a wonderful son and a fine young man. Players and spectators knew Ryan as the official starter on the 10th tee. Competitors knew Ryan as a two time champion and someone overflowing with talent and potential.
Following a decorated career at Berlin High School on both the varsity golf team and varsity basketball team, Ryan continued his golf career at Long Island University. As a Division I collegiate golfer, Ryan embodied the most important traits of a successful person, both on and off the golf course. Ryan was persistent and determined, and always eager to learn. He never got angry on or off the course, and always showed the utmost respect for the game of golf. He garnered invaluable life lessons from his time as a collegiate golfer, and there is no doubt Ryan could have done anything in this world.”
