K.H Lee will be determined to ensure that South Korean dominance continues when he competes in the 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson.
The last two tournaments were won by South Korean stars Sung Kang (2019) and Lee (2021) as they emulated Sang-moon Bae.
Bae became the first South Korean to win this event in 2013 beating Keegan Bradley by two strokes in a playoff.

Lee enjoyed a successful 2021 as he made his breakthrough on the PGA Tour - impressing at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
The Seoul-born golfer finished in a tie for second, one stroke behind 2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open winner, Brooks Koepka.
Three months later, Lee earned his first PGA Tour win at the 2021 AT&T Byron Nelson, with a score of 25-under-par, beating runner-up Sam Burns by three strokes.
The 30-year-old took part in last month's Wells Fargo Championship where finished 25th and he is now looking to defend his crown at the TPC Craig Ranch.
“I am really thankful to K.J Choi and Sung Kang,” Lee said after winning the AT&T Byron Nelson.
“I didn’t think about they wait for me, but he [K.J.] wait for me and [say] ‘Congratulations K.H., you’re so good.’ Always they are very kind to me.
“Still, I can’t believe now. After this time, more believe in me and more strong my mind. So, I think perfect for me.”
Tom Watson is the most successful golfer in the history of the AT&T Byron Nelson having won the tournament a record four times.
