Kiwi Danny Lee has claimed the biggest win of his career, pocketing US$4 million (NZ$6.3 million) after a triumphant performance at Tuscon on the LIV Golf Tour.
In just his second start since joining the rebel tour, Lee shook off an earlier missed opportunity to sink the winning putt off of the green for a birdie on the 18th hole.
He edged out Brendan Steele, Louis Oosthuizen, and Carlos Ortiz in a four-way playoff to take the honours.
Lee started the final round four shots off the lead, before finishing nine-under and tied with the impressive quartet.
“I’m speechless right now,” Lee said. “I wasn’t even looking at the individual score all day. I was only asking about ‘how is our team doing?’
“That’s the reason why Kevin [Na] called and that’s the reason I’m over here.
“The individual victory means a lot. I haven’t won since 2015. I just felt like winning is just not my thing but today just changed that. It’s good to see I’m capable of playing some good golf.”
