Danny Lee authored a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to finish up at 12-under 272, good for a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead with Justin Thomas.
Lee began his final frame at 10-under (T12) and four back of 54-hole leaders Troy Merritt and Kevin Chappell. On a difficult day for scoring, Lee was bogey-free, 3-under thru his first 14 holes, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 8 and 12, including a 9'6" roll at the par-4 12th for his longest conversion of the day to that point. After squaring back-to-back bogeys on 15 and 16, missing both greens in regulation, the 25-year-old ended his loop in style, rolling in a 21-footer at the last for the walk-off birdie. Lee enjoyed his breakthrough victory on the PGA TOUR at The Greenbrier Classic (in his 98th career start) in early July, and currently sits T6 on the live leaderboard. If it holds up, it would be his sixth top-10 finish of the season on a whopping 30 starts. Aug 2 - 5:44 PM

Danny Lee enjoyed his opening 67 at the Quicken Loans National so much that he hung up another in today's second round.

Today's stroll around Robert Trent Jones Golf Club featured respective nines of 32 and 35. He went 2-for-2 in scrambling but couldn't avoid squaring a 5 at the par-4 12th hole, three-putting from just outside 63 feet. However, Lee more than compensated with five birdies, including a pair from 12-14 feet. But his last conversion may have been the most important. After finding a greenside bunker on approach at the par-4 18th, he'd eventually salvage par from 11'1". At 8-under 134, the recent winner at Greenbrier is 8-under 134, just two shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Danny Lee tossed up a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, finishing four shots back of the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Lee missed the cut at The Open Championship to extinguish a spurt that was sparked by his breakthrough victory at Greenbrier and validated with a T3 at the John Deere Classic. Today at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, the South Korean covered a bogey-6 at the fifth hole with five birdies, including conversions from 29'8" and 21'6" at Nos. 17 and 9, respectively. However, the highlight of his round was an unusual par at the par-3 11th. After sailing his tee ball long and left of the green, his second came to rest on the other side of the green and in the rough. From there, 29 yards from the hole, Lee connected on a chip-in. (You can view the shot at the link below.) Today's aggregate is his ninth consecutive sub-70 in the U.S. and 12th in his last 13 rounds.

Danny Lee concluded his fourth John Deere Classic with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to finish at 19-under 265, good for a two-way tie for third place and one shot out of a playoff spot with Jordan Spieth and Tom Gillis.

Lee, last week's winner at the Greenbrier Classic in a playoff, was bidding to become the first player since Camilo Villegas in 2008, to win their first PGA TOUR titles in back-to-back fashion. The 24-year-old, playing in the final pairing with 54-hole leader Spieth, began the final round at 15-under and two shots back. Lee, who celebrates his birthday on July 25th, had outpaced one bogey (more on that below) with six birdies thru 17 holes, only to square bogey on the last to drop out of a playoff spot with Spieth and Gillis. His consolation is a personal-best at the Deere (four total appearances), supplanting a T30 in the 2012 edition. Lee will harken back to his one-stroke penalty at the fourth, where he mistakenly picked up his ball in the fairway, thinking lift, clean and place, which was in play for the third round. was still in effect.
Jul 12 - 6:09 PM

Danny Lee fired a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-31=62 in today's third round of the John Deere Classic to post 15-under 198, two shots back of the 54-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.

Lee, who broke through for his maiden PGA TOUR title at last week's Greenbrier Classic in a playoff, began the day at 6-under (T22) and six shots adrift. He raced out of the gates with three straight circles at Nos. 1-3 (each from inside nine feet) and added a fourth at the par-4 sixth from 32'4" to turn in 4-under. After adding his fifth par breaker at the 10th (from 26 inches) and par at the 11th, the 24-year-old reeled-off another three consecutive birdies at Nos. 12-14, each from inside 11 feet, to join the lead at 14-under. He added his ninth par breaker at 17, rolling in a 12-footer from the fringe. Lee split 10 (of 14) fairways and piped 15 greens in regulation, totaling 24 putts. He is gunning for back-to-back titles and would be the first to do so since Billy Horschel last season. His 62 is a new career low on TOUR in 280 career rounds as a pro.
Jul 11 - 7:36 PM

In his first round as a PGA TOUR winner, Danny Lee signed for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 following his opener of the John Deere Classic.

TPC Deere Run is the kind of joint where a first-time winner can relax and just play golf. Lee did just that in hitting 14 greens in regulation and circling four birdies, including walk-offs at 17 and 18. He's five strokes off the overnight lead.
Jul 9 - 7:19 PM

Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and David Hearn at 13-under 267, and then won with par on the second playoff hole.

Like Kisner and Hearn, Lee had an outside chance to win in regulation at the last, but missed a 20-footer. The eventual champ exchanged birdies with Hearn on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) to eliminate Kisner and Streb. Hearn made a mess of the second playoff hole (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to capture his first PGA TOUR title (95th career start as a pro). Lee began the day at 10-under, one swing back. On his round, he hit 13 greens and registered 1.692 putts per GIR, leading the field in that stat. Interestingly, he never joined the lead until circling his fourth birdie of the day at the 17th. In his previous two appearances at Greenbrier, Lee missed the cut in 2012 and finished T16 in 2014. In addition to full status on the PGA TOUR through 2016-17, he's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship this summer. Of course, he also collected a berth into next week's Open Championship.
Jul 5 - 5:47 PM

Danny Lee bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic and his 10-under 200 total has him one swing back of the 54-hole leaders.

Lee, 1-for-2 on The Old White TPC (MC, 2012), was T2 after a first-round 65 in last year's Greenbrier, and closed in 66, but 71-71 on Friday and Saturday resulted in a T16-finish. The 24-year-old, 57th in the FedExCup standings, began the festivities in a seven-way tie for third at 8-under, just one off the pace. He circled seven birdies for a second time this week (round one) and co-leads the tournament with 16 total. That's the good news. He also squared five bogeys in round three, all on the par 4s. In total, Lee split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, returning a gaudy 1.417 putts per GIR. He ranks first in this stat thru 54 holes at a cumulative 1.615 putts per GIR. Lee's season-best, on a busy schedule of 26 starts, is T3 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. His career-best (in 97 starts) is runner-up at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open.
Jul 4 - 7:33 PM

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.
Jul 2 - 6:13 PM

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.
Jun 26 - 5:20 PM

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.
