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. Oct 22 - 4:57 PM

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.
Sep 12 - 6:07 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 10:48 PM

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.
Jun 20 - 2:18 AM

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.
May 29 - 6:45 PM

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.
Apr 26 - 6:18 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 4:29 PM

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.
Apr 17 - 7:20 PM

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.
Feb 2 - 12:55 PM

D.H. Lee still has status on the PGA TOUR via a Minor Medical Extension.

Lee was fully exempt in 2013-14, but was limited to 20 starts by a neck injury. He cashed only eight times, just once for a top 50. If he earns $573,703 or 344.150 FedExCup points through three starts, he'll be promoted to the Major Medical category. While he played regularly down the stretch, including going 1-for-4 in the Tour Finals with a solo 72nd at the Chiquita Classic, the 27-year-old is not an advised fantasy option.

D.H. Lee opened the Barracuda Championship with a 5-under-par 35-32=67 worth 11 points.

No need to stop us; we know you're read it before. Lee exchanged six birdies with one bogey at Montrêux Golf and Country Club today. Three of his birdies occurred on the par 5s; he squared his bogey on the other (No. 13). He'll wake up on Friday sitting seven points adrift of Nick Watney's overnight lead.

D.H. Lee crafted a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to post 9-under 204 through 54 holes.

Lee was unusually hot on his lap around TPC Deere Run, circling seven birdies to just two bogeys thanks in part to preferred lies following overnight rain. He began his day on the 10th hole and quickly got on the board with a 13'7" birdie at the par-4 11th. Other highlights included birdies from 10'3", 14'5" and 19'1" on the 16th, fifth and sixth holes. Lee ranks 223rd in the FedExCup standings and hasn't finished any better than T58 at the Valspar Championship, so this week is setting up to be his best of the season.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 03:38:00 PM

D.H. Lee shot a 2-over-par 35-38=73 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

After six weeks off following a shoulder injury that forced him out of THE PLAYERS after 20 holes, Lee hit 13 greens in regulation, but holed just one attempt and that needed to drop from 32'4" at the par-3 13th hole. He also squared three bogeys and finished seven strokes off the clubhouse lead. If you own the PGA TOUR sophomore in a format that rewards success, it might be time to look into another fantasy sport.
Thu, Jun 26, 2014 05:30:00 PM

D.H. Lee is listed in the published field of next week's Quicken Loans National.

If he honors the commitment, Lee would be competing for the first time since he withdrew during his second round of THE PLAYERS with a shoulder injury. He emerged with a career-best T3 at Congressional last year, but his sophomore season has been a loss with just four paydays in 14 starts and zero top-55 finishes.
