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.

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.

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.

Danny Lee has missed the cut in each of his previous two attempts at the Farmers Insurance Open and looks to remedy that this week.

Lee's recent play is hardly a reason to jump on board his bandwagon either. Since the calendar turned to 2015, he has missed two cuts to go with a T64 in the Humana Challenge. Simply put, a person would have to look very hard to find a reason to invest in his direction this week at Torrey Pines.

Danny Lee tied for third place in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba just before a lengthy break in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR calendar.

He made four of his six cuts to start the season, with a T13 in the CIMB Classic another noteworthy escapade. Lee ranks 18th in the FedExCup standings and is well on his way to securing his TOUR card for another season. Expect him to pop up at the Sony Open in a few weeks. While he missed the cut in that event last season, he tied for 13th in the 2013 edition in what was his only PGA TOUR start of that season.

Danny Lee made a move in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba but eventually settled for a 4-under-par 29-38=67.

Lee circled seven consecutive birdies to finish his front nine at El Camaleón Golf Club, which is the longest birdie stretch of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. He was unable to continue the run on the back nine, as he could only muster six pars and three bogeys. He ended the day at 15-under 269. While that was good for the clubhouse lead, it will not hold up.

Danny Lee conjured up a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to join a growing number of players at 11-under 202.

Lee's scorecard reflected plenty of drama on the course, as he circled six birdies and squared a pair of bogeys to just 10 pars at El Camaleón GC. He landed an impressive 14 GIR and putted to a 1.643 average. Entering the week 71st in the FedExCup standings, a top-10 finish would send him into the holiday break with a peace of mind.

Danny Lee carded a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to settle one stroke adrift of the six clubhouse co-leaders.

Lee is one of four golfers that played in every week this season. Heath Slocum and Nicholas Thompson are also making their sixth start 2014-15, but James Hahn withdrew early this week and will enter the holiday break stuck on five. For any of the first three to continue the streak into January, he's going to have to win in México since the first event back is the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Lee is in great position to break through for his first victory after today's effort. He erased a lone bogey with six birdies at El Camaleón. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. Incidentally, both Slocum and Nitro opened with 68s.

Danny Lee has turned in a pair of 3-under-par 35-34=69s to open the CIMB Classic.

Lee hasn't had a top-15 finish since early March. In that same 21-event drought, he's logged only two top 30s, so chalk him up as one of the more thankful beneficiaries of the no-cut, money-and-points grab in Malaysia. He's buried 10 birdies against two bogeys and a double.

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.

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.
