After carding 70 and 75 in the first two rounds at Winged Foot, Danny Lee went into the weekend as the sole New Zealander in the running, sitting 33rd equal, following Ryan Fox’s second round horror show.

Lee’s US Open hopes unravelled however on the 18th hole, where he ended up with a quintuple bogey after missing five putts in succession.

Lee reportedly landed just four feet away from the pin however his frustrations grew as his multiple attempts saw the ball stray further from the hole.

Refusing to speak to media, Lee pulled out of the tournament following his collapse on the final hole citing a wrist injury.

USA's Matt Wolf leads sitting at five-under overall, with fellow American Bryson DeChambeau trailing by two strokes.
