Kiwi golfer Danny Lee had a day to forget on the PGA Tour, managing to slip so badly from the opening round lead that he missed the cut at the Valspar Championship in Florida.

The 23-year-old from Rotorua was the co-leader following an opening three-under par 68 on Friday but, after making birdie on the first hole on Saturday at Innisbrook Resort's Copperhead course, it was all downhill as he stumbled to an eight-over 79 in the second round, missing the cut by two shots.

On his day, Lee can compete with the world's best as she showed in finishing second at last week's Puerto Rico Open, but his struggles to lose the tag of being a streaky player continue.

American Robert Garrigus (eight-under) has a one shot lead from compatriot Kevin Na after three rounds.

If she is able to, when do you expect Lydia Ko to win her first major?

Next year, she's so close

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
