Danny Lee’s maiden PGA Tour victory at the Greenbrier Classic Sunday came on the strength of a steady, reliable putter.
The 24-year-old who became the youngest U.S. Amateur champion in 2008 (a record that has since been broken) finished the week at the Greenbrier seventh in strokes gained/putting. He was also T4 in total putts with 108, first in putts per green in regulation and T10 in distance of putts made. During regulation Sunday, Lee one-putted eight times, including at the 17th hole where he drained an eight-footer that tied the lead and eventually got him into a playoff with David Hearn, Robert Streb and Kevin Kisner at 13-under.
On the first playoff hole, the 181-yard par-3 18th, Lee made birdie from just outside 10 feet.
Hearn would match the birdie, and the pair went on to the second playoff hole, where Lee eventually one with a routine par after Hearn needed four shots to reach the green at the par-5 17th.
Lee’s putter is an Odyssey Works Versa #9.
