The Jun Team

Jun Lee – President, Founder, Chief Designer

Jun started playing golf at the age of five and grew up in Texas as a Junior Golfer. She competed in Junior Golf Tournaments and earned a full scholarship to the #1 ranked NCAA women’s golf team at San Jose State University in Northern California. Jun graduated with a Radio-Television and Film degree with a minor in Business Marketing. She went on to compete in golf on a professional level.

Jun has been personally trained by Hank Haney and has studied his teaching method for years. She has gained knowledge by practicing, understanding and ingraining Hanks’ method into her own game. This knowledge has given her great insight, confidence and motivation to help other golfers improve their game. She became Senior Golf Instructor at Hank Haney Golf.

In 2007, Jun started her own business by designing women’s golf apparel. After running the business on her own for 7 seasons, she partnered with Timber Creek Capital.

Jun realized that the golf industry was tragically missing the mark when it came to women’s fashion and soon after, her passion and competitive nature kicked in to start designing and manufacturing what is known today as “Designs by Jun”, Women's Golf and Every Wear.
