Profile

Richard Lee will forever be the first man to shoot a 59 in competitive golf in New Zealand. The 35-year-old, who achieved that feat at the 2010 Carrus Tauranga Open, knows how to go deep.

Lee played the Japan Golf Tour in 2012 but failed to keep his card and is playing on the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2013 while he completes his Bridging Program with the NZ PGA.  
 
When he comes home Lee is a regular competitor on the Charles Tour and in 2010 he finished runner-up to Michael Hendry in the Muriwai Open.

Lee, who trailed Hendry by one shot down the last, made a fine birdie to make the North Harbour pro match his birdie for the win. That finish showed Lee’s ability in the clutch moments.

When he is on his game, as shown by his 59 and a recent 62 at the Muriwai Golf Club, he can shoot the lights out.

It takes a special mental hardness to keep attacking when you are deep in the red numbers to see how low you can go but it’s something Lee feels he has learned over time.

”For me there's nothing better than going deep,” said Lee.

“These rounds just happen. I used to get to five or six under and start feeling the pressure and drop shots coming in. Now I seem to have broken through the barrier.”
