7:45 am on 7 July 2009

The 18-year-old New Zealand golfer Danny Lee has earned another bonus on the PGA tour after his tie for seventh yesterday behind Tiger Woods at the AT&T National tournament in Washington.

Lee picked up just under $300,000 for his first top 10 PGA Tour finish, taking his earnings from only seven starts as a professional to $565,000, which would place him 132nd on the money list, if he was a member of the PGA tour.

Meanwhile he's qualified for a start in this week's $7 million John Deere Classic starting on Friday in Illinois.
