After sitting in 15th place following the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Lee's game slowly worsened at Torrey Pines.

His final round six-over 78 featured five bogeys and two double-bogeys, which were both shot at the last two par-threes he played.

Lee's three-over tally left him 13 shots behind Australian Jason Day, Swede Alex Noren and American Ryan Palmer.

Palmer was eliminated on the first hole of the three-way play-off but Day and Noren couldn't be separated over four more holes together, forcing the tournament to go into another day because of fading light.

Lee, who missed the cut in his three previous Tour appearances, is projected to fall two spots on the tour points rankings to 89th.
