Dani Lee has fallen into disagreement with the PGA championship.
Kiwi golfer Danny Lee capitulated in the second round of the US PGA Championship with her spare driver.
The 28-year-old New Zealander, who was second in the opening round at Bethpage Black in New York on Friday (NZ time), dropped 10 shots out of his second round on Friday (Saturday NZT).
Lee's second round of the four over 74 had him down six to four to sit in 9th place for the 10th.
Lee, who had an early start, noticed his driver's clatter as he warmed up.
* Rough riding for Daley
* More PGA power for Lee
* The tiger carriage Zinger annoys Daley
* What: I will train
"Pretty brutal, 6:45, starting at No. 10, with a 20-minute drive to this tea … I just could not get up early," Lee said. Golf.com,
"Maybe I should have opened a tent in the immediate vicinity of the parking lot and left.
Lee had a substitute driver, but he did not have time to hit him before the round because the road range was so far from the 10th.
"We finished the warm up, then we replaced, we went into the shuttle and went to 10th tea," said Jason Hamilton, who told Lee. Golf.com,
Lee started with a nightmare of 41 on his back nine, before improving dramatically with 33 on the front ninth.
A pair of bogeys of the 11th and 12th nominees were combined with two consecutive doubles of the 15th and 16th.
Once in nine, Lee took three birds in four holes one through four.
But two more boogies in the fourth and fourth seventh and seventh were returned again.
Lee finished his round with a bird on eight eight – that was almost one hole in one – and the eighth number of his round in his last hole ended in four over two rounds.
He had gone straight to drive.
"I'll hit some balls, and I'll know that my shots there with the driver, I think, if I can hit a few more fairways, I think that will be my key," Lee said. Golf.com,
Just one day earlier, Lee was celebrating his new power, which allowed him to compete with the major cannons for the first time.
Overnight leader Brooks Koepek took five more shots to keep the 12th spot.
After the start of the day at -7, Koepka shot 65, leading seven shots over Jordan Spieth, Australian Adam Scott and another American golfer Luke List, who are in three directions for a second at -5.
Lee Kiwi's husband, Ryan Fox, fired a second round 70, but was ready to miss the match after a shock in the first round of eight-over 78.
He finished with a tie for 117th place.
Tiger Woods shot three over 73 in his second round and was also ready to miss the match.
