Richard H. Lee returns to the Golf Club of Houston for his third Shell Houston Open.
Lee has failed to secure a paycheck in his first two trips, so optimism should be tempered. Following a tied for fourth in Puerto Rico, he missed the cut at the Valspar Championship before sharing 62nd in the Valero Texas Open. He enters the week 102nd in the FedExCup standings. Mar 31 - 10:33 PM

Richard H. Lee battled for a 5-under-par 34-33=65 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open, finishing the week at 16-under 272.

Lee circled a pair of birdies on the front nine, then stalled. After a bogey at the par-4 14th, he finished his afternoon with four consecutive birdies. While the players on the course are still sorting out the details, what we do know is that this will be the fifth top 10 of his PGA TOUR career.
Mar 9 - 4:07 PM

Richard H. Lee signed for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Lee circled five birdies to just one bogey on his third lap around Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. He enters the final round at 11-under 206 and five strokes off Chesson Hadley's lead. Lee has never won on the PGA TOUR.
Mar 8 - 4:17 PM

Richard H. Lee carded a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open and sits three swings back of the clubhouse lead.

He split 10 (of 14) fairways and stood over 14 opportunities to break par. The sound ball-striking yielded five birdies against just two bogeys (both on par 3s). Lee has a top 10 this season (T10 at Pebble Beach where he's always played well) but he's just 111th in the FedExCup standings since none of his other four paydays are top 30s.
Mar 6 - 11:42 AM

Richard H. Lee managed an even-par 36-36=72 at Spyglass Hill in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and is the first man in the clubhouse at 6-under 209.

Lee's round matched three birdies with three bogeys, now giving him 12 birdies to six bogeys for the tournament. There was some doubt as to if anyone would actually post a score on Saturday, as a wind delay halted action for two hours and 19 minutes. Though just in his third year on TOUR, this has become a beacon of light for the Washington state resident. He tied for 15th as a rookie in 2012, then posted a T12 last year.
Feb 8 - 6:37 PM

Richard H. Lee followed his opening 65 at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with an even-par 36-36=72 on the host course.

Ten (of 14) fairways hit and 10 greens in regulation today for the non-winner. He exchanged one birdie and one bogey on each nine, and his longest conversion was for par from 19'4" at the par-4 eighth hole. He's 6-under 137 at the midpoint, three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead in relation to par, but he'll need to regain some mojo at Spyglass Hill in the third round.
Feb 7 - 7:00 PM

Richard H. Lee carded a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course.

Lee has struggled this season, cashing in just three of seven starts and none in his last three. However, he's logged top 15s in both of his previous trips to this tournament, so something will have to give as the week prolongs. He missed only two (of 13) fairways and hit 14 greens today. After going out in birdie-free 1-over after five holes, he circled seven birdies against no bogeys the rest of the way. That set included birdies on three of the quartet of par 5s. He'll move over to play Pebble Beach in the second round.
Feb 6 - 8:50 PM

The opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open has been delayed by 30 minutes due to fog, according to PGA TOUR Media on Twitter.

Locals will often refer to this morning moisture as the marine layer, but go ahead and set aside the semantics. It'll burn off once the sun reaches a favorable angle in the sky. Richard H. Lee is among the threesome poised to open the tournament on the first tee on the North Course at Torrey Pines, now at 9:30 a.m. PT. He's off to a relatively slow start with three paydays in five tries and nothing better than a T35 at the CIMB Classic.
Jan 23 - 11:05 AM

Richard H. Lee has secured three cuts in four tries to begin the 2013-14 PGA TOUR campaign.

Only 26 years-of-age, Lee already has 52 PGA TOUR starts under his belt. It's hard not to like him on paper. His 2013 numbers included rankings of 24th in driving accuracy, 52nd in GIR, 11th in strokes gained-putting and 11th in scrambling. Those are some pretty strong splits. It goes without saying that he could break out at anytime and on any course that doesn't require a great deal of length.

Richard H. Lee is enjoying the spoils of his 2013 PGA TOUR success and will play the CIMB Classic.

This time last year, Lee was preparing for another stint at PGA TOUR Q School, so securing a tee time in an event without a cut is quite a step. He just welcomed his second child into the world during the week of the Open, then tied for 43rd at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last week. Perhaps the new baby and lack of sleep he’s already experiencing will make the jet lag from Las Vegas to Malaysia not seem all that bad.

Richard H. Lee makes his first appearance in the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 92nd in the FedExCup Standings.

Lee missed the cut at The Barclays in his FedExCup Playoff debut last week. He can't afford a similar fate this week or his season will come to an end. He's gone 16 for 23 this year, with seven top 25s and a pair of top 10s. No matter his fate at TPC Boston, the fact that he kept his TOUR card for the first time in just his sophomore season is a big step towards his viability as a full-season own going forward.

Richard H. Lee returns to the Wyndham Championship where he tied for 14th a year ago.

The sophomore has progressed nicely during his almost two years on the PGA TOUR, and Sedgefield Country Club was the sight of his third best finish a year ago. He sits 77th in the FedExCup standings, so with a strong week he could position himself for a deep Playoff run.

Richard H. Lee signed for a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship and is the first man in the clubhouse at 7-under 203.

Lee circled four birdies in his navigation of TPC River Highlands, landing 15 GIR and gaining over three strokes on the field with his flat stick. In Sunday's final round, he will try and slam the door on his third top 10 of his sophomore season and the fourth of his career. His current best PGA TOUR finish was a T6 in last year's Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. His steady play and consistent improvement make him a target for gamers in full-season formats in 2013-14 should his value remain modest.

Richard H. Lee submitted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

Lee is 11-for-16 on the season and ranks 82nd in FedExCup points. He's showed time and again that he can pepper leaderboards. Today was his latest example. He hit 13 greens and converted an eagle from 17'2" at the par-5 13th hole to complement four birdies on his outward nine. The longest of that set measured 23'4" at No. 8. He bogeyed the par-4 10th and 12th holes, but would finish four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Richard H. Lee will try his hand at Muirfield Village in his first trip to the Memorial.

Lee is fresh off a solid T35 at Colonial and has made 10 of 15 cuts to start the year. He currently ranks inside the top 50 in driving accuracy, GIR, strokes gained-putting and sand saves. All of those strengths are likely to be called on this week.
