Danny Lee had a typically up and down round at The Barclays, the PGA Tour's end of season opener, but remains well placed.

The Kiwi No 2 shot a one-under 70 in New Jersey to get to five-under for the tournament and be in a tie for 16th.

He made four birdies and three bogeys in his third round, but it could have been much better had he not bombed the 572m par-five 13th.

Lee was just 45m short of the green for two, but took a bogey six.

He flubbed his third into the bunker, went over the back of the green with his fourth into another bunker before getting up and down for a costly bogey on a hole plenty of players were picking up shots on. He remains just four shots off the lead held by Jason Day and Jim Furyk.

Kiwi No 1 Tim Wilkinson is also in the field and shot one-over 72.

He's two-over for the event and in a tie for 71st after only narrowly making the cut.

Would you be happy to pay for PGA Tour coverage online?

Absolutely. I'll do whatever it takes to watch golf.

It depends on how good the service is.

If it's not on TV, I won't watch it.

What? The PGA Tour's not going to be on Sky TV?
