Danny Lee

Born in Incheon, South Korea, Lee moved with his family to New Zealand in 2001. Became a New Zealand citizen in 2008. His mother was a golf pro in Korea. Lee won the 2008 U.S. Amateur Championship and at 18 years, 1-month-old, became the youngest champion, supplanting Tiger Woods by holding off Drew Kittleson, 5 & 4. (In 2009, his age record was surpassed by Byeong Hun 'Ben' An).He capped his 11th consecutive day of competitive golf by sinking a 30-foot birdie putt at the 14th hole, dropping his putter and thrusting his fists into the air in celebration. Lee, who was 6 months and 29 days younger than Woods was when he won the first of his three Amateurs in 1994, joined 2005 U.S. Open winner Michael Campbell as New Zealanders to claim championships at the Donald Ross-designed Pinehurst No. 2. He also became the fourth foreign-born Amateur champion in six years. For Lee, it was an exhausting finish to a whirlwind few weeks. He won both medalist and match-play titles at the Western Amateur and T-20th in his PGA Tour debut at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro the day before he started playing at the Amateur.
His biggest moment came in July 2015, when he defeated David Hearn by parring the second extra hole to win the Greenbrier Classic, his first win on the PGA Tour.

Missed cuts in final appearance as an amateur (Masters) and first start as professional (Zurich Classic of New Orleans).
