Lee, ranked 125th in the world, had been floundering in 51st place after two rounds at the Byron Nelson Classic.

But after firing two even-par rounds of 70, Lee found form with a vengeance on day three, his seven birdies marred by just one bogey at TPC Four Seasons.

He now sits in a share of 14th place with four others, six shots off the pace set by American James Hahn, who holds a one-stroke lead over compatriot Billy Horschel.

The two other Kiwis on the US PGA Tour - Steve Alker (four-over) and Tim Wilkinson (five-over) - both missed the cut.
