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.

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.
Mar 13 - 7:21 PM

Danny Lee has been added to the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.

Lee's career-best solo second on Sunday in Puerto Rico was a long time coming for the 23-year-old. The top 10 secured a start at Copperhead where he'll be making his debut. He led the field last week in greens in regulation and par breakers, so his confidence has to be high. Even though he's just 2-for-10 on the season with just one top-30 finish, that runner-up fueled a rise to 79th in FedExCup points. He's also poised for a significant leap in the reshuffle at the conclusion of the Shell Houston Open in early April.
Mar 10 - 11:44 AM

Danny Lee carded a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open, but came up two-strokes shy of Chesson Hadley at 19-under 269.

Lee was quick out of the gates with birdies on two of his first three holes, but gave them back later on the front nine. Needing to make up some ground at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, he circled five birdies to just one bogey on the back nine. He nearly caught Hadley, closing the gap to one with two to play, but the winner birdied the final two holes to pull away. With this runner-up finish, Lee is exempt into the Valspar Championship later this week.
Mar 9 - 5:10 PM

Danny Lee circled eight birdies en route to a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Lee has never won on the PGA TOUR, but that could easily change tomorrow. His 15-under 201 is just one off the 54-hole lead of Chesson Hadley. Only two of Lee's eight birdies were erased by bogeys, with the blemishes coming on the par-4 third and 14th holes. He made a late run with three birdies on his last four holes.
Mar 8 - 4:05 PM

Danny Lee answered his opening 67 at the Puerto Rico Open with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to post 9-under 135.

Lee circled seven birdies, including a walk-off jobber at the par-4 ninth. He has 13 birdies against four bogeys at the midpoint and sits just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 7 - 4:38 PM

Danny Lee flashed supreme precision on approach en route to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Lee split nine (of 14) fairways but landed all 18 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. He converted six birdies to help hide a three-putt bogey at the par-3 sixth hole. The 23-year-old signed his card sitting one stroke off the clubhouse lead. He needs a big week in a bad way as he's cashed just twice in nine starts this season. He entered the week riding an 0-for-6 skid.
Mar 6 - 12:34 PM

Danny Lee first competed in the Farmers Insurance Open in 2012, missing the cut, and returns for a second go of it this week.

While the Torrey Pines North course generally plays about two-strokes easier than the beefy South course, the number was even more exaggerated for Lee. After opening with a 5-under-par 67 on the North, he took a hard fall down the leaderboard with a 6-over 78. He's made two of six cuts this year, but has yet to crack a top 30.
Jan 22 - 8:43 PM

Danny Lee is back for a second crack at the PGA TOUR after once again navigating the Tour successfully.

Lee competed four times in the Fall Series, making two of four cuts, sharing 33rd at the Open and tying for 40th at The McGladrey Classic. In 47 career starts, he has just one top 10. Despite a strong amateur résumé and relative success on the Tour, he hasn't proven an ability to put it all together on the game's biggest stage with any consistency. Unless he posts a win, he will be subject to the reshuffle all season.

Danny Lee has gained entry into this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Lee started the week as the fourth alternate. He earned a spot in the field of 132 at TPC Summerlin when Blake Adams withdrew today. Lee tied for 33rd at the Open. While it wasn't a memorable week, any payday during the first phase of the reshuffle is valuable. In his only previous appearance at the Shriners, he missed the cut in 2012.

Danny Lee is set for his second stint on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, and his season gets underway at the Open.

Lee teed it up at CordeValle Golf Club in his 2012 rookie season, sharing 16th. It was one of only three top 25s that season, and he ultimately failed to retain his card and returned to the Tour. His biggest highlight was a runner-up at the Rex Hospital Open, but he also managed four other top 10s and a total of nine top-25 finishes.

Danny Lee torched TPC Wakefield Plantation for an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in the third round of the Rex Hospital Open and takes a four-stroke advantage into the final round at 17-under 196.

Lee was blemish-free, circling eight birdies on his Saturday afternoon stroll. As you would expect, he had plenty of looks at birdie thanks to 17 GIR. His 85.71 percent driving accuracy leads the tournament for the week. In his quest to earn his second career Tour victory, his nearest competitors are Andrew Putnam and Edward Loar at 13-under 200.

Danny Lee co-leads the Tour's WNB Golf Classic through two rounds at 10-under-par 68-66=134.

He and Reid Edstrom hold a one-stroke margin over six in pursuit. Lee entered the week ranked 18th on the money list thanks to four paydays, including a pair of top 10s. He's still just 22 years of age, which is mind-blowing given his pedigree. Thus far at Midland (Tex.) Country Club, he's offset two bogeys with 12 birdies, just four of which on the set of four par 5s. Seventy-seven golfers survived the cut, which fell at 2-under 142.

Danny Lee returns to the WNB Golf Classic, where his success over the last two seasons has been second to none.

Lee won the 2011 edition and came back to share second in 2012 behind only Luke Guthrie last September. Lee has also seen his share of early-round leads this year; both in Colombia and Brazil. With his game in form and history established, don’t be surprised if he goes a long way towards earning a 2013-2014 PGA TOUR card this week.
