8:45 am on 14 April 2009

As of now, Danny Lee the teenage New Zealand golf sensation is a multi-millionaire as he starts the first week of his life as a professional golfer.

The 18-year-old from Rotorua ended his amateur days last Saturday when he missed the cut at The Masters, and he's on the verge of signing a deal with the International Management group believed to be in the region of 10 million US dollars - that's almost $17 million.

His first tournament will be next week's New Orleans Classic.
