Lee has now gone each of the last six seasons earning at least $1.2 million. His best finish last season was a runner-up at the CJ Cup. That high finish was important because overall he statistically struggled, ranking 131st in SG: Total. The biggest area for concern has to be his short game, which ranks 194th on Tour last season.
Lee's 2018-2019 season was much like his previous three seasons on the PGA Tour. He got hot for short stretches and very cold for others. In-between, not a whole lot to write home about. Lee has always been one of the more streaky guys on the PGA Tour and that looks to continue into the foreseeable future. Lee has had one season on the PGA Tour where he had much longer hot streaks than cold streaks, but as we get further away from that season, it's starting to look more and more like an aberration.
Lee is a bit of a unicorn on the PGA Tour. Sure, there are plenty of guys that are streaky, but Lee takes his streaks to a whole different level. For Lee, it's just a matter of what he accomplishes while he's hot. In 2015, he turned his hot streaks into a win, a runner-up and two 3rd-place finishes on his way to nearly $4 million in earnings. Since then, he hasn't been able to accomplish nearly as much, but he's found a way to remain productive. Lee still has a lot of upside and even though he's ultra-streaky, his floor is still relatively high. He'll aggravate you more often than not, but when he gets hot, he's fun to watch.
Five full seasons on the PGA Tour and it's still hard to tell how good he is. He struggled early in his career, which is not uncommon, but in his third full season the PGA Tour, he exploded for nearly $4 million in earnings. The past two seasons have been okay, but nothing like what he accomplished in that third season. A closer look at his results from last season might hold the key to Lee. Lee's year on the whole wasn't great, but for a stretch from May through July, where he did all of his damage. After that stretch though, he was awful, missing the cut in his final four starts. It seems clear that Lee is just extremely streaky, but it's also clear that his range is $1-2 million and not near $4 million.
Lee saw a large improvement from year-one to year-two, but he lost all of that momentum last season as he fell back to Earth. After a rookie season where he earned just under $800k, not much was expected of Lee in his second year, which is why it was so surprising to see him nearly crack the $4 million mark. Nearly as surprising was his performance last year, which saw him fall back to just under $1.5 million. With only three seasons to go off of, it's tough to tell who the real Danny Lee is. With that said, at his current price, he might be worth a look in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, he should go near the 7th-round.
Lee did enough to retain his card last season, but it would be a stretch to call it a successful campaign. Lee missed the cut more often than he made the cut in 2014 and if not for a runner-up showing at the Puerto Rico Open, he would have finished well outside the top-125. Lee doesn't have much of a track record on the PGA Tour, so he may have some upside, but it hasn't shown yet, so he's not worth a look in salary cap leagues. He'll likely go undrafted as well.
Lee probably didn't want to spend the entire 2013 season on Web.com tour after playing for years on PGA Tour. But give him credit, he earned his way back onto the big stage.
Lee joins the PGA TOUR this season via his sixth-place finish on the Nationwide money list in 2011. Lee earned his spot on the money list by playing extremely consistent golf the entire year. He finished inside the Top 10 in half of his 18 events. He'll have to set his sights a little lower this year, but if he can turn those Top-10s into Top-25s on the PGA Tour this season, he'll find his way into the Top 125.
Lee had sporadic success on the PGA TOUR in 2009, but he'll again be at the mercy of sponsors as he'll not have a card for the 2010 season. As such, Lee is not a good pick for the upcoming season.
