NEW Zealand’s Dany Lee has claimed his first US PGA Tour victory with a four-way playoff win at the Greenbrier Classic this morning.

The 2008 US Amateur champion from Rotorua finished regulation play at The Old White TPC tied at 13-under par with David Hearn, Robert Streb and Kevin Kisner. But when Lee and Hearn birdied the first playoff hole the two progressed to a second extra hole.

Lee, 24, recorded a par at the par-5 second playoff hole while Hearn carded a bogey to hand Lee the trophy.


Lee become the first Kiwi golfer in the more than 10 years to register a victory on the US PGA Tour since Michael Campbell who won the US Open in 2005.

With his victory in West Virginia, Lee will secure a  host of playing exemptions for the future and a US PGA Tour card for the next two seasons.

Lee earned $US1.2 million (AUD $1.6 million) and is the ninth first-time winner on the tour this season.
