Teen sensation may be best NZ golfer ever

NZ Golf's high performance manager David Graham says the Rotorua golfer Danny Lee could quite likely be one of the best golfers New Zealand will ever see.

Lee's good form continues - after sealing double honours at the Western Amateur Championship in Michigan yesterday he's now preparing for the US Amateur championships, following a win in a qualifier in Illinois.

Lee's work on his back swing and short game has been paying dividends and Graham says the win, and qualification for the biggest amateur tournament in the world, on the back of the Michigan double is outstanding.
