D.H. Lee orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Barracuda Championship to deposit 8 points and reach 29 points total, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T10.
This was the 29-year-old's second appearance in Reno after a T66 in 2014. He was making his 17th start of the season and collected just his fifth payday, easily a season best, supplanting T35 at the Shriners back in October. The Tour grad squared back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 3 and 4, but overshadowed them birdies on holes 1, 6, 9, 10 and 13, with a long of 23'2" at the par-4 10th. For the week, he totaled 20 birdies against 11 bogeys and if the top 10 holds, it'll be his fourth in 64 career events and first since a T9 at the Greenbrier in July, 2013.

Playing out of the 33rd spot in the graduate reshuffle D.H. Lee turns his attention toward TPC Louisiana for this week's Zurich Classic.

After posting a 20-for-24 record with five top 10s on the Tour last year, somebody turned off the lights for Lee. He's opened the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season with a 1-for-6 record and even missed the cut in his lone Tour start at the Louisiana Open. Luckily, Lee is now arriving at a venue where he owns a 3-for-3 record, including a T8 in his 2013 debut. When you consider his cut-made percentage at all other TOUR stops is just 40 percent, you have to stop and take notice this week. Lee possesses a lot of risk, but a familiar track could provide the spark he needs.

D.H. Lee has withdrawn from this week's Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach. He was 5-over through 27 holes, citing a foot injury as the cause of WD. UPDATE: Lee returned to action on Apr. 21st with a 1-under-par 71 at the Valero Texas Open, and after adding a 71 in R2 for 2-under 142, will make the 36-hole cut for the first time in his third try.

Lee opened the week with a 2-over 74 in round one. That included a pair of double bogeys. He kicked off his second round on the back nine and squared three bogeys without any birdies to offset them. Lee called it a day instead of making the turn. We will keep you updated if any news pops up about Lee missing additional time because of this foot injury.

D.H. Lee makes his second appearance at the CareerBuilder Challenge at PGA West, first since 2013, and enters the week 3-for-6 on the season with a best of T35 at the Sanderson Farms.

Before the PGA TOUR switched to the Tour as the sole means of qualifying, the 28-year-old was medalist here at q-school in the final version of the old system in 2012. He returned for his tourney debut during his rookie season on TOUR in 2013, and finished T72 on rounds of 70-66-70-70. Lee spent 2015 on the WCT and graduated 11th on the priority rankings but has dipped to 20th following the first reshuffle. In 53 career TOUR starts, he's made 24 cuts, missed 25, and has four mid-tournament WDs. He missed the cut by four last week on Oahu following rounds of 68-73.

D.H. Lee will enter the new year ranked 124th in the FedExCup standings.

The Tour graduate collected three paychecks in five attempts, during the fall. Entering the season at 11th on the priority rankings, he has dropped down to 20th after the first reshuffle. Lee has three career top 10s in 52 starts. He will need to add a few more to his resume soon or finding an adequate number of starts may become a problem.

D.H. Lee torched TPC Summerlin for eight birdies en route to a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

As his nine-hole splits suggest, the 28-year-old got after it early. In fact, he had six circles on his card when he walked off the par-4 seventh hole. Included in that run were conversions for birdie from 38'7", 12'9" and 27'3" at Nos. 1, 3 and 6, respectively. He went 1-for-3 in scrambling with bogeys at the eighth and ninth holes, but recovered with a birdie-4 from 27'8" at 13 and a birdie from 17'4" at the par-3 17th. At last check, Lee ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.914. He's also just one shot back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Despite opening bogey-bogey, D.H. Lee posted 6-under-par 35-31=66 in today's opening round of the Open.

Fresh off a successful season on the Tour, Lee opens his return trip to the big leagues at ninth in the reshuffle. After the slow start at Silverado today, he displayed the kind of form that yielded the high perch. He buried six birdies, including conversions from 10'4", 12'5" and 19 feet at the third, ninth and 15th holes, respectively, but it's what happened at the par-4 14th that electrified any spectators observing. Lee piped his drive 272 yards into the fairway, and then jarred his second for eagle from 141 yards. The 28-year-old authored a birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie burst on his inward nine, and then walked off parked three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

D.H. Lee spun a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Hotel Fitness Championship to earn the 54-hole lead at 15-under 201.

He sits three ahead of Anirban Lahiri. Lee circled seven birdies and squared just one bogey on his navigation of Sycamore Hills GC. He has the luxury of playing with house money during the Finals, as he secured his 2015-16 PGA TOUR card during the Tour regular season by finishing 15th on the money list. A win on Sunday would secure him an excellent spot in the first Tour reshuffle to start the upcoming PGA TOUR season.

D.H. Lee merely posted an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Nova Scotia Open, but finds himself in a tie for the lead with five other players at 10-under 203.

Lee's ride around Ashburn GC was a wild one, featuring four birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey. It's not a common occurrence that an even-par round vaults one into a tie for a lead, but such is the case this week. Already 23rd on the Tour money list, a win this week would lock up Lee's 2015-16 PGA TOUR card.

By competing in the Tour's Rust-Oleum Championship last week instead of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, D.H. Lee no longer has status on the PGA TOUR.

Lee was eligible on merit to play in Memphis. He had one start remaining on a Minor Medical Extension, so he forfeited it by stepping down to the Tour. Given that he needed to collect $534,718 or 307.15 FedExCup points at the SJC to earn a promotion to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season -- a long shot, indeed -- you can understand his decision. In fact, he's currently 20th on the money list on the development circuit, so that's his fast track back to the big leagues. You'll see him at next week's Air Capital Classic in Kansas. For the record, he also fell short of conditional status on the PGA TOUR by 191.91 FedExCup points.

D.H. Lee completed 36 holes of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship in 5-over-par 77-67=144 and will miss the cut.

He went 0-for-10 in scoring chances on Thursday and squared four bogey-5s and a triple bogey-7. Today's effort was better, obviously, but nowhere near what he needed to advance. Now 1-for-2 on the season on a Minor Medical Extension, Lee is left with one start to earn $534,718 or 307.15 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category. He'd secure conditional status if he collects 191.91 FedExCup points in that start.

D.H. Lee authored the shot of the day in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, holing his tee ball at the par-3 17th from 210 yards.

Lee converted the ace with a hybrid. It was the 22nd on the PGA TOUR this season. (You can view the shot via the link below.) After a birdie-4 at the last, he signed for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to post 13-under 275, good for a share of 33rd place worth $38,985.00 and 37 FedExCup points. He now has two starts remaining on his Minor Medical Extension to earn $534,718 or 307.15 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category. Lee will resume his schedule at the Tour's United Leasing Championship this week.

D.H. Lee is 7-under-par 70-67=137 at the break of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, four swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

With only three starts on his Minor Medical Extension, the pressure is on to perform at a high level on every shot. He set the bar high in the opening round at TPC Louisiana with a hole-out for eagle from 130 yards at the par-4 eighth hole. It was his first round on the PGA TOUR this season. Today's lap was more standard. It featured seven birdies against a double bogey at the par-4 fourth. Lee's most impressive birdie today was a zero-putt seven-yarder at the par-3 ninth. His longest conventional conversion dropped in from 19-and-a-half feet at the par-4 10th. At last check, he sported a negative strokes gained: tee-to-green clip (-0.885), but ranked 13th in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate 4.411. If he earns $573,703 or 344.15 FedExCup points on his medical, he'll be promoted to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season.

D.H. Lee has committed to next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Lee has a Minor Medical Extension (neck) affording three starts to collect $573,703 or 344.15 FedExCup points. Should he achieve either, the 28-year-old will be promoted to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season. He's already off to a nice start on the Tour this year thanks to a co-runner-up at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open three weeks ago. It's the primary reason that's he's 23rd on the money list. So, unless he tears up the PGA TOUR in his allotted starts, gamers have no reason but to monitor his progress with the forethought to invest in 2015-16.

D.H. Lee has entered the field at the Farmers Insurance Open. UPDATE: Lee has since withdrawn from the tournament. Scott Gardiner has also withdrawn as an alternate.

Lee was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was one of three to gain entry following the latest wave of withdrawals. He has three starts on a Minor Medical Extension to earn $573,703 or 344.150 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category. In his last three starts, Lee tied for eighth in an event in his native Korea in October. He then placed T21 at Tour Q School in December. Finally, he tied for 59th in Panama on Sunday in the season opener on the Tour. While he has no long-term fantasy value at the moment, Lee could be a sneaky play in DFS this week given modest recent form and a 2-for-2 slate at Torrey Pines.
