Danny Lee chased his opening 63 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round to reach the break in 8-under 132, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Chad Collins and Bryce Molder beat him to the aggregate and the trio is unlikely to sleep on the lead, but none will complain about his position entering the weekend. Lee went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey today. He countered with two birdies, consisting of a roll from 25'7" at the par-4 first hole and a three-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 ninth. He also poured in a par save from 10'1" at the par-3 15th where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. This is Lee's 95th PGA TOUR start; he's still in pursuit of his first trophy presentation on the circuit. Jul 3 - 1:52 PM

Danny Lee crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic and sits just one strokes off Scott Langley's overnight lead.

Lee is making his PGA TOUR-leading 27th start this week. The travel hasn't affected him negatively as he's fresh off his eighth top 25 of the season (T25, Travelers) and sits 57th in the FedExCup standings. At The Old White TPC today, the 24-year-old hit 15 greens in regulation and found seven birdies, including a pair from 11-14 feet. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.750. His aggregate matches his career low first established at Pebble Beach in the first round of the annual stop on the Monterey Peninsula.

Danny Lee backed up his opening 66 at the Travelers Championship with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round.

He went 6-for-7 in scrambling with one bogey at TPC River Highlands today. The longest of Lee's four birdies measured 14'5" at the par-4 18th hole where he'd make the turn. At 7-under 133, he's just four stroke back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Danny Lee submitted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

Lee is making his PGA TOUR-leading 26th start this week. To put that in perspective, Nicholas Thompson led last season with 30 and there are still three months remaining in 2014-15. It's paid off, though, as Lee is 60th in the FedExCup standings. Today at TPC River Highlands, he hit 15 greens and converted for birdie five times. Three of those ran at least 10 feet, the longest stretched 15 feet at the par-4 18th where he concluded the walk.
Jun 25 - 3:19 PM

Danny Lee crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Going out in the first threesome off the 10th tee in the afternoon wave, Lee was 1-over through seven. He then holed out from 190 yards for an ace at the par-3 17th to get into red numbers. Lee retained position with a par save from 10'4" at the par-4 18th. After scoring birdie-bogey on Nos. 5 and 6, respectively, he connected for another eagle, this time conventionally from 23'2" at the par-5 seventh hole. At the time he signed his card, he was the only player in the field with as many as two eagles, but he's five strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 28 - 6:02 PM

Danny Lee closed out his third Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-34=66 to post 9-under 271.

Lee found eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to his four birdie stroll around Colonial CC. The Irving, Texas, resident circled three birdies in his first six holes converting from 8'11" on the par-4 second and from 14'11" on No. 6. He also added a par breaker of the zero-putt variety, pitching-in from the left rough on the par-4 third, 18 yards from the target. His longest holed putt came as a par save on the eighth, rolling in the rock from 16'7", his second of what would be 10 consecutive pars. The 24-year-old added his last circle from 14'8" on the 17th. Lee's finish has him knocking on the top-10 door and will easily eclipse his previous best of T38 in last year's edition.
May 24 - 5:27 PM

Danny Lee added a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to post 5-under 135 at the break.

He opened and closed with respective birdies from 11'11" and 13'5" at Nos. 10 and 9, but traded two birdies with three bogeys in between. In fact, Lee raced out to 3-under after four holes before losing momentum. He went 3-for-4 in scrambling but two of his bogeys were as a result of three-putts (at the 16th and third holes). He's five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 22 - 5:42 PM

Danny Lee battled his way to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Indeed, his experience was more challenging than the score indicates. Lee split only eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. He shifted it in reverse right out of the gate, literally. After sending his tee ball well right of the fairway at the par-5 first hole, he had to pitch back into the short grass, eventually holing out for bogey. He added bogeys at Nos. 5 and 7, but picked off seven birdies elsewhere. Five of them found the cup from outside 10 feet, including a 10-yard hole-out from in front of the green at the par-3 16th. Lee's longest conventional conversion measured 20'2" at the par-4 12th. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field in birdies and sat two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 21 - 4:13 PM

Danny Lee tacked on a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 14-under 202, two shots adrift of the 54-hole lead.

Lee started his third round at 10-under and in an eight-way tie for fifth. The 24-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation but required 29 putts on his round. That included 16 putts on his outward nine, where he converted just 1-of-8 par-breaker chances, holing a 15'2" putt for birdie on the par-4 sixth. Lee added consecutive birdies on Nos. 13 and 14 (among three circles on the back), the latter being of the chip-in variety from 11 yards right of the target.
Apr 26 - 2:36 PM

Danny Lee ripped off an 8-under-par 33-31=64 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Lee went 9-for-16 in scoring chances with nine birdies en route to matching his season low in 58 rounds. His longest conversions measured 23'10" and 14'10" at the first and eighth holes, respectively, both for birdie. His only blemish was a bogey at the par-4 12th, his third hole of the round. Lee is 10-under 134 at the midpoint and just two strokes off the 36-hole lead. He and Nicholas Thompson co-lead the PGA TOUR with 19 starts, including this week's.
Apr 25 - 11:25 AM

Danny Lee settled for a 3-over-par 36-39=75 in today's opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

Back immediately following a bout with vertigo in San Antonio last week, Lee split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at the Golf Club of Houston today, but he erased two birdies with three bogeys and a walk-off double at the par-4 18th hole.
Apr 2 - 5:46 PM

Danny Lee withdrew during his second round of the Valero Texas Open, citing vertigo.

Yikes. We see it a couple of times every season, but it's not often noticed on the scorecard as vividly as Lee's today. After missing the green long at the par-3 third hole -- his 12th of the round -- he pitched on to 7"7" and promptly four-putted for a triple bogey. He was 3-over on the day and 11-over for the tournament. This is his second WD during an event in 87 PGA TOUR starts. Lee had arrived in great form with top 20s to conclude the Florida Swing and positioned 42nd in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: He's committed to next week's Shell Houston Open where he hasn't competed since his debut in 2012 (T36).
Mar 27 - 1:46 PM

Danny Lee spun a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to reach the midpoint in 8-under 136.

Lee has scored lower on the PGA TOUR, but he may not have felt as comfortable over every shot like today's scorecard suggests. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. The set included a zero-putt eight-yarder at the par-4 10th hole and a traditional conversion from 12'11" at the par-4 13th. He also saved par from 10'11" at the par-5 fourth. He didn't miss on all 17 looks inside 20 feet, but only two of those were outside nine feet. At the time he signed his card, Lee's strokes gained: tee-to-green sat north of 3.035 while his strokes gained: putting measured just shy of 3.350. He's five strokes off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's coming off a T7 at Copperhead where he closed with 67, so the 24-year-old made the short trip to Bay Hill with fresh confidence.
Mar 20 - 12:05 PM

Danny Lee spun a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to earn a top-10 finish at 5-under 279.

Lee started hot, circling four birdies on first seven holes at the Copperhead Course. He would stall, settling for par on his last 11 holes. It was a hot putter that sparked his round, as the shortest of his birdies fell from 11'8" on the par-5 first hole. He also chipped in for birdie on the par-4 seventh hole. This moves him inside the top 50 in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 15 - 3:34 PM

Danny Lee missed the cut in the 2014 Valspar Championship and returns to Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead Course to try and remedy that wrong.

Lee has been a bit inconsistent in the 2015 portion of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, missing four of his seven cuts. His best finish of that run was a T32 in the Farmers Insurance Open. That was a stark contrast from the way 2014 ended, as he tied for third in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
