Danny Lee will take his third look at TPC Summerlin at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Lee is 0-for-2 heading into the week, but he's still just 24-years old. His runner-up finish at last season's Puerto Rico Open really put him on the FedExCup map, and guided him into two legs of the Playoffs. Lee finished fourth in the field last week in regards to strokes gained: putting. That will be a key this week if he wants to finally conquer TPC Summerlin. Oct 14 - 8:43 AM

Danny Lee crafted a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

It's always fun to see how a guy with nothing to lose fares in his final shot at success. Lee entered the week at 96th in the FedExCup standings after playing his way into the field with a T38 at last week's Barclays. He opened the DBC with a 3-over 74 and seemed headed to an early exit. However, despite hitting only 10 greens in regulation (for the second straight day), Lee chased a lone bogey at the par-5 second hole with five consecutive birdies beginning at the par-3 third. The run featured conversions from 32'3" and 12'2" at Nos. 3 and 5, respectively. He added birdies at 10 (from 10'7") and 13. That last one was not expected. Lee's approach into the par 4 came to rest in the intermediate cut long and left 18 yards away. As you already know, he converted from there for the 3. It's the fourth time he's scored a season-low 65. At 3-under 139, Lee is five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Danny Lee will get introduced to TPC Boston at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Lee took care of business in his FedExCup Playoffs debut last week, posting a T38 finish to climb up to 96th in the FEC standings. He will need another strong finish this week if he wants to make it into the top 70 and advance onto the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills. With 20-of-76 rounds on the season yielding scores of 68 or better, Lee and his putter are always capable of contending in a shootout.

Danny Lee enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of The Barclays and finished two strokes off the overnight lead.

Lee rolled into Ridgewood Country Club at 116th in the FedExCup standings, so we were set to get a read on his grit with nothing to lose. Well, we got a good one. He split only six (of 14) fairways and hit just 10 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 seventh hole. Along the way, he picked up five birdies, including a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 16th hole. Lee opened his walk at the 10th hole and promptly poured in a par save from 28'1" at the par 3. Each of his next three conversions rolled longer than 10 feet, including yet another par save, this time from 16'3" at 12. At the time he concluded his round, his strokes gained-putting clip sat at a gaudy 4.336, good for second-highest in the field of 122.

Danny Lee has advanced to his first FedExCup Playoffs and will be at The Barclays this week.

Lee resides in the 116th spot in the FEC standings, which puts him in serious jeopardy of being ousted at Ridgewood CC this week unless he puts together a big week. The good news is, he will be fully exempt on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 regardless. Following a T16 at The Greenbrier Classic, his last four starts have resulted in two missed cuts and nothing better than a T34 in the RBC Canadian Open.
Aug 20 - 9:16 PM

Danny Lee totaled 11 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship, finishing five points adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Lee has flashed signs of his precociousness this season, most notably a solo second in Puerto Rico. He's poised to make his debut in the FedExCup Playoffs at just 24 years of age. Today at Montrêux Golf & Country Club, he circled six birdies to help absorb one bogey (at the par-4 fifth hole) en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67.
Jul 31 - 6:26 PM

Danny Lee carded a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 6-under 134 at the break, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

At 105th in FedExCup points, Lee is just about set for his first Playoffs and 2014-15 card. Still, today's effort could be interpreted as an opportunity fulfilled what with the potential threat of being the wrong side of a perfect storm of variables that would knock him outside the top 125. He went 6-for-15 in par-breaker chances, each dropping in for birdie. The set included conversions from 12'2", 40 feet and 18'7" at Nos. 13, 16 and 18, respectively. He also holed out for a seventh birdie from six yards away in front of the green at the par-5 sixth. Lee circled five of his birdies on his opening nine, the back side of Royal Montreal.

Danny Lee flushed a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

Lee has been buoyed by his runner-up finish in Puerto Rico. It lifted him to 75th in the FedExCup standings where he ranks 110th today. So, he needs probably one more solid finish to secure a spot in the Playoffs. His first walk around The Old White TPC since 2012 was a good one as he went 8-for-15 in par-breaker opportunities, all dropping for birdies. The set featured five in a row beginning at the sixth hole and included conversions from 33'8", 19'2" and 17'1" at Nos. 7, 8 and 10, respectively. He came to rest just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 3 - 6:34 PM

Danny Lee enters this week's Quicken Loans National ranked 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Lee was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard in 2012, but was already set to miss the cut, so the DQ was just a formality. That was his second trip to Congressional Country Club, with his 2009 tournament debut resulting in a share of 7th place. Lee has top 50s in four of his last six events, but the inconsistency on a round-to-round basis remains an issue. Gamers looking for a home run could do worse this week.
Jun 24 - 10:25 AM

Danny Lee is back for his second crack at Colonial Country Club in this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Texas resident debuted in 2009 with a share of 46th place and will try to better that after four more years of experience. Lee continues to be a roller-coaster of emotion, ranking 49th in par breakers, but also ranking 118th in bogey avoidance. His upside remains at an elite level, but he will stay grounded until he can show some round-by-round consistency.
May 21 - 10:02 AM

Danny Lee fired a 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to join Tim Wilkinson in a share of the clubhouse lead at 11-under 205.

Lee's nine birdies easily outpaced his two bogeys, and three of them were from outside of 10 feet. Highlights included an 11'8" effort on the par-3 third, a 17'8" roll on the par-4 fifth and a 13'6" putt on the par-4 10th. His ball-striking was on point as well, splitting 11 of 14 fairways and holding 16 GIR. His 1.538 putting average is among the best of the week. He will try and steal his first PGA TOUR victory in Sunday's final round.

Danny Lee enters this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings.

Lee has started to develop a reputation as a hot starter, as he's posted four first round scores in the 60s over his last six tournaments. Unfortunately, the opposite could be said about his Friday's, as he has just one Friday round in the 60s over that same stretch. In fact, his last six Thursday scores are a cumulative 40 strokes lower than his second round scores. The potential is certainly there if he can find a way to string together four good rounds.
Apr 23 - 11:23 AM

Danny Lee spun a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open to join Pat Perez in the clubhouse as a co-leader.

Since his solo second in Puerto Rico, Lee missed the cut at Copperhead and tied for 31st at Bay Hill. He landed in San Antonio slotted 79th in FedExCup points. Today he split 11 (of 14) fairways but hit only 10 greens in regulation. No big. He limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole while circling five birdies elsewhere. The set included conversions from 28'7" and 12'5" at the 15th and 17th holes, respectively.
Mar 27 - 6:27 PM

Overnight co-leader Danny Lee followed his opening 68 at the Valspar Championship with an 8-over-par 41-38=79 to post 5-over 147 and miss the cut.

He won't even come close once the entire field completes 36 holes. Lee split nine (of 13) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation today. He even opened with a birdie-4 at the first hole, but it was all downhill thereafter. Lee squared seven bogeys and a double en route to the trunk slam. He fanned on seven attempts inside 10 feet.
Mar 14 - 3:30 PM

Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship to become the fourth and final co-leader after 18 holes.

He simply picked up where he left off in Puerto Rico. Lee went 7-for-8 in scrambling at Copperhead today and rolled in four birdies, including conversions from 16'8" and 26'5" at the 12th and first holes, respectively. It seems that the late draw got the better of the conditions today, so Lee may be able to pile on early on Friday for his second round when the wind is not anticipated to be as great a factor as it was this morning.
