New Zealand golfer Danny Lee is tied fourth heading into tomorrow morning's third round of the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open.

After rounds of 67 and 68 Lee is in a four-way tie on nine-under par with Americans Ben Martin, Wes Roach and Jonathan Byrd, three strokes adrift of American halfway leader James Driscoll.

Lee, who had made only two of nine cuts heading into this week, appears set for a decent payday come Monday's finish (NZT), with the 23-year-old enjoying the Trump International course in Rio Grande.

Lee fired seven birdies today which would have seen him co-leader with Driscoll after 36 holes, but also made three bogeys.

Meanwhile, fellow New Zealander Tim Wilkinson failed to make the cut after rounds of 73 and 72.

Finally, no Kiwis will feature over the weekend of the World Ladies Championships in China with Cathryn Bristow (79, 74) and amateur Julianne Alvarez (82, 77) both missing the cut.
