PGA TOUR and Greenbrier Resort officials announced today that The Greenbrier Classic, scheduled for July 7-10, has been cancelled due to the devastating flooding caused by record rainfalls throughout West Virginia.
"We are heartbroken by the devastation that the residents of West Virginia are experiencing at this time and the reports of lives lost due to the terrible flooding," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. The press release also mentioned that The Old White TPC, host course for the tournament, suffered extensive damage from the flooding and is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament, TOUR officials said. Danny Lee would have been the defending champion after winning last year's edition in a four-man playoff to claim his first TOUR title in his 98th career start. Jun 25 - 3:57 PM

Danny Lee styled a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during the opening round of the 116th U.S. Open, putting him three strokes off the early pacesetter, Andrew Landry.

The Kiwi was remarkable on and around the greens in round one. He split just half of his fairways and landed just nine greens in regulation. Despite the less-than-stellar ball-striking, he managed just one bogey, going 8-for-9 scrambling. Most notable was a 15-footer to save par at the par-4 third. He stretched out the distance on the next hole, splashing home a 31-foot birdie bomb. Two holes later he found himself in a tricky situation in the rough, having missed the green on the par-3 sixth. Instead of a possible bogey, he flopped one that rolled straight into the cup to circle his second (and final) birdie of the round. On a round where he didn't have his best stuff, tee-to-green, Lee did a fantastic job of managing the course today.

Danny Lee led off his week at the Memorial with a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to sit just two strokes off the early lead set by Dustin Johnson.

In typical Danny Lee fashion, he pelted 15 greens in regulation on his way toward five birdies, one eagle, and just one bogey. The bogey actually took place first, as he missed from 6'10" at the par-3 fourth hole where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. He bounced back with a 7'8" birdie at the next hole and followed that up with a 89-yard hole out for eagle at the par-5 seventh hole. Lee walked off the course ranked second in strokes gained approach-the-green (+4.344 strokes). This was Lee's fifth round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, and will be his first time signing a sub-70 card.

Danny Lee settled for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson but he will still enter the weekend at 8-under 132, right in the mix.

Playing on his home course this week, Lee torched TPC Four Seasons Resort in round one, but took a step back today. The difference was largely due to the flat stick. In round one he sank five putts from outside 12 feet, but managed just one putt from outside six feet, today. Lee's approach game was not as tidy, either, as he landed three fewer greens today compared to Thursday. Despite this middling round, Lee is still T6 on the live leaderboard and should find his putter over the weekend.

Playing at a very familiar venue, Danny Lee torched TPC Four Seasons to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, joining Sergio Garcia as the co-leaders in the clubhouse.

Lee opened his week on the back nine and gifted DFS owners a birdie train starting at the par-4 10th hole. The longest conversion was a 21'1" splash to caboose the train on the par-4 12th hole. The Irving, Texas, resident stretched it out even longer three holes later, dialing in a 33'10" birdie. Lee dropped in three more putts from outside 12 feet as he was coming into the clubhouse, clearly feeling comfortable on these greens which he's played so often. Lee owns three top 35s on his Byron Nelson resume, but his game has grown leaps and bounds over the past 12 months. It would not be surprising to see Lee contending for his second PGA TOUR title as the week progresses.
May 19 - 8:51 PM

Danny Lee orchestrated a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in today's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 72-hole tally of 5-under 283, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T9.

Lee's best in four previous visits was T13 last year on rounds of 71-69-70-70. He entered his final frame this week on even-par after opening in 72-71-73. The 25-year-old exchanged bogey-5 at three with a hole-out birdie from the greenside bunker at the par-4 first. He missed birdie from 41 inches at the par-5 fifth before a gimme from 15 inches for birdie-4 at the seventh to turn 1-under. The Kiwi circled back-to-backs on 10 and 11, and again on 14 and 15, all from inside of eight feet and played his final 15 holes in blemish-free 5-under. He's off to TPC Sawgrass where he's scheduled to make his second appearance after missing the cut on debut last year following twin 73s.
May 8 - 2:59 PM

Danny Lee cruised to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the first round of this week's Zurich Classic.

Playing in a group with World No. 1 Jason Day, Lee held his own all day and even surpassed Day by round's end. It was all ball-striking today as he walked off the course gaining just 0.106 strokes putting. That included a nasty lip from 3'10" on the par-5 second hole that could have very easily dropped for birdie. Lee arrived with a strokes gained putting rank of 130th on TOUR after finishing 2014-15 inside the top 25. It's just a matter of time before the flat stick comes back around and once it does Lee is a serious threat to find his second career PGA TOUR victory.

Danny Lee survived Amen Corner in round two of the 80th Masters, recording a 2-over-par 36-38=74 to grab the very early clubhouse lead at 2-under 142.

Lee swallowed a double bogey early on his round thanks to a three-putt at the par-4 third hole. A pair of birdies offset that, allowing him to make the turn at even-par 36. The trouble started flying at him beginning at the par-4 11th hole, where he required a 12-footer to save par. He splashed his tee ball on the difficult par-3 12th, but rolled in a 17-footer to save bogey. Lee found the water again on the next hole, but flipped a beautiful recovery pitch for a tap-in par. Lee could have easily played the infamous Amen Corner at 4-over but walked out with just one dropped shot. The Kiwi opted for a new caddie this week and it's paying dividends through two rounds.
Apr 8 - 2:36 PM

Making his second Masters appearance, Danny Lee fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the opening round to sit two strokes off the current pace set by Jordan Spieth.

Lee signed for rounds of 74 and 81 on his way to an early exit in his 2009 Masters debut. He was playing as an amateur and finished six strokes shy of dead-last. Lee's game has improved greatly over the last seven years and it showed today as he carded just two bogeys despite missing seven greens in regulation. His longest putt came 13 feet for birdie on the par-5 eighth hole and also holed out from just off the green (6 yards out) on the par-3 12th hole. Lee arrived without a top 25 over his last six starts, but he arrived with a new caddie on the bag and looks strong through round one.
Apr 7 - 6:06 PM

Danny Lee withdrew after 10 holes of his final round at the Valspar Championship. UPDATE: Lee returned to action on Mar. 17th with a 2-over 74 in the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

This is Lee's fourth mid-tournament WD in his 114th career pro start and second this season. He exited during the third round of the CIMB Classic back in November with a pinkie blister. The 25-year-old began his final frame at 1-under (T19) after opening in 70-72-70, and sat just one shot off the overnight top 10. He was 3-over on the day when he called it quits, erasing an opening birdie with four bogeys. As of now, Lee is in the published field at next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Mar 13 - 3:01 PM

Danny Lee kicked off his week at the Valspar Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70, currently three strokes shy of the co-leaders at the top.

Lee got the putter clicking right away today, opening up on the back nine and rattling in birdie rolls from 14'3" and 18'1" on the par-4 12th and par-3 13th holes, respectively. It was a necessary crutch today, as he landed just eight greens in regulation. Lee should be very happy with this opening-round effort, and he could really move up the leaderboard if his approach game starts to gel.
Mar 10 - 7:05 PM

Overnight leader Danny Lee faded away to a 2-over-par 38-35=73 in today's final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 11-under 273, good for solo fourth and three shots out of a two-man playoff involving Hideki Mastuyama and Rickie Fowler.

After opening in 67-66-67, Lee lead by three over playing competitors Matsuyama and Fowler. It was his first 54-hole lead on TOUR in his 110th pro start. Three holes in, his lead was gone after back-to-back bogeys at No. 2 and on the easiest hole on the course, the par-5 third. He dropped another with a failed up-and-down at the par-3 seventh, his second failed scramble of the day, to turn in birdie-less 3-over. The 25-year-old finally broke the ice from 19'3" at the par-4 10th and at that point, trailed Fowler by one, but bogeyed 12 (failed scramble) and then three-putted the par-4 14th (from 39'6"), missing his par putt from 36 inches. He collected himself enough to circle birdies at 15 and 17 for his final tally. Lee's solo fourth was easily his best at TPC Scottsdale in four attempts (three MCs), and was his first top 10 of the season on six events.
Feb 7 - 6:28 PM

Danny Lee conjured up a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 13-under 200, good for a three-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama and Rickie Fowler.

Lee was in the final threesome with overnight leader James Hahn and Fowler. He began the day one back of Hahn (joint second) after opening in 67-66. The 25-year-old went out in bogey-free 4-under, circling three straight on Nos. 2-4 (from between three and 21 feet) and adding a 39'6" bomb at the par-4 eighth. He dropped shots on 11 (three-putt from 64'0") and 15 (water ball) but erased them with birdies at 13 and 17. This is Lee's first career 54-hole lead on TOUR in his 110th pro start, and he's been buoyed to that spot by leading the field in driving accuracy at 83.33 percent (35/42) and strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 5.760.
Feb 6 - 6:36 PM

Danny Lee crafted a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 133, tied second with Rickie Fowler and one back of 36-hole leader James Hahn.

Lee chased 67 with today's seven-birdie against two-bogey effort in R2. He split 12 (of 14) fairways for a second straight day and leads the field thru 36 holes in driving accuracy (24/28) at a stellar 85.71 percent clip. The 25-year-old, who's never made the cut here in three previous tries, landed just 11 greens, but posted an eye-catching 1.545 putts per GIR. His split featured three birdies that traveled between 18 and 24 feet and circled three straight on Nos. 15-17 on his outward half.
Feb 5 - 9:18 PM

Danny Lee twirled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, two swings back of 18-hole clubhouse co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Shane Lowry.

Lee is making his fourth visit to TPC Scottsdale and looking to play more than two rounds for the first time. On his way to early exits in 2015, 2014 and 2012, he began with over-par loops on each occasion, including a 6-over 77 in last year's edition. The 25-year-old is off to a significantly better start his time, circling five birdies against a lone bogey at the par-4 ninth. Lee converted from in excess of 11 feet four times, including an 18-footer at the par-4 first and from 22'9" at the par-4 11th. He closed last week's weather-delayed Farmers in 8-over 80.
