Lee, Wilkinson in field for Byron Nelson Classic

3:08 pm on 20 May 2009

Danny Lee makes his third start as a professional at this week's Byron Nelson Championship, starting in Irving Texas on Friday.

The 18 year old New Zealander is playing a dozen PGA tour events this year on special invitations or exemptions, attempting to win enough money to earn full playing privileges on the tour next year.

Palmerston North's Tim Wilkinson is also in the field, looking to end a run of three missed cuts since his 330-thousand dollar payday a month ago at the Heritage Classic in South Carolina.
