Lee's hopes of winning the Memorial Tournament in Dublin virtually disappeared on the second day with a three-over 75 but he bounced back with a four-under 68 on Saturday to climb from 53rd to 35th.

Four successive birdies from the 12th hole provided momentum for the Kiwi No.1, who is on seven-under, eight shots behind co-leaders Emiliano Grillo and American Matt Kuchar.

The leading pair were still to complete their rounds when bad light suspended play. They are a stroke clear of American clubhouse leader William McGirt on 14-under.
