KIWI PRO WATCH: LEE DISQUALIFIED AT A T & T NATIONAL

30/06/2012

New Zealand No.1 Danny Lee has been disqualified for the second time this season on the PGA Tour for signing an incorrect scorecard.

The 21-year-old Korean born Kiwi, who opened with a seven over par 78 to be in a share of 108thplace at the A T & T National in Maryland, bounced back in the second round with a one under par 71 to finish on seven over par for the two rounds.

He would have missed the cut by one shot but did not check his scorecard correctly and he was disqualified.

It is a disappointing result for Lee who was disqualified at the Wells Fargo Championship in May for the same offence. He is projected to slip seven places in the Fed Ex Cup Standings to 150th.

Michael Campbell has missed the cut at the Irish Open on the European Tour by 10 shots.

After shooting a one over par 73 in round one at Royal Portrush to be in a share of 116thplace things got worse for the former US Open champion with a seven over par 79 in round two.

The Irish Open champion of 2003, who last week finished tied 60that the BMW International in Germany, finished in a share of 144thplace after a disastrous stretch coming into the turn where he made three bogeys and a quadruple bogey nine on a par five.

On the Nationwide Tour Manawatu professional Tim Wilkinson has shot a second successive one under par 71 at the United Leasing Championship to be in a share of 32rd place at the halfway stage.

The former PGA Tour player, who is currently 45thon the Nationwide Order of Merit, is six shots back from Australian Alistair Presnell (68, 68) on an eight under par total.
