Valencia High School junior Alison Lee has already won two tournaments this year.

Her latest victory came at the Fresh and Easy/Kraft Legacy junior Challenge on Tuesday, which earned her a spot in next week’s Kraft Nabisco Championship, the first LPGA major championship of the season.

Lee shot a 4-under 68 at the par-72 Arnold Palmer Course at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, an event that was organized by the Southern California Golf Association.

The one-day qualifier featured 18 junior girls who were selected by the Southern California Golf Association, according to a press release on the American Junior Golf Association’s website.

It was the second win of the season for the UCLA commit, with her first coming at the ANNIKA Invitational in January.

The Kraft Nabisco Championship, which begins on Thursday at Mission Hills Country Club’s Dinah Shore Tournament course, will mark Lee’s third try at an LPGA major.

She also participated in two other U.S. Women’s Opens.

Lee will be the highest-ranked junior golfer in the field with her current No. 6 spot in the AJGA Polo Rankings.
