Since launching her professional career in 2010, she has finished 45 times in the Top 10 and has seven LPGA Tour victories and one major.

In 2013, Mirim Lee broke the LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament scoring record with a 61 in the third round to earn Priority List Category for the 2014 season. Her playoff win at the 2014 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give during her rookie season earned her the Rolex First-Time Winner commendation and in March, she received her third victory at the 2017 Kia Classic.
