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. Feb 3 - 8:27 AM

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.

Danny Lee totaled 11 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship, finishing five points adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Lee has flashed signs of his precociousness this season, most notably a solo second in Puerto Rico. He's poised to make his debut in the FedExCup Playoffs at just 24 years of age. Today at Montrêux Golf & Country Club, he circled six birdies to help absorb one bogey (at the par-4 fifth hole) en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67.

Danny Lee carded a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 6-under 134 at the break, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

At 105th in FedExCup points, Lee is just about set for his first Playoffs and 2014-15 card. Still, today's effort could be interpreted as an opportunity fulfilled what with the potential threat of being the wrong side of a perfect storm of variables that would knock him outside the top 125. He went 6-for-15 in par-breaker chances, each dropping in for birdie. The set included conversions from 12'2", 40 feet and 18'7" at Nos. 13, 16 and 18, respectively. He also holed out for a seventh birdie from six yards away in front of the green at the par-5 sixth. Lee circled five of his birdies on his opening nine, the back side of Royal Montreal.

Danny Lee flushed a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

Lee has been buoyed by his runner-up finish in Puerto Rico. It lifted him to 75th in the FedExCup standings where he ranks 110th today. So, he needs probably one more solid finish to secure a spot in the Playoffs. His first walk around The Old White TPC since 2012 was a good one as he went 8-for-15 in par-breaker opportunities, all dropping for birdies. The set featured five in a row beginning at the sixth hole and included conversions from 33'8", 19'2" and 17'1" at Nos. 7, 8 and 10, respectively. He came to rest just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Danny Lee enters this week's Quicken Loans National ranked 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Lee was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard in 2012, but was already set to miss the cut, so the DQ was just a formality. That was his second trip to Congressional Country Club, with his 2009 tournament debut resulting in a share of 7th place. Lee has top 50s in four of his last six events, but the inconsistency on a round-to-round basis remains an issue. Gamers looking for a home run could do worse this week.
