K.H. Lee earns first career win on PGA Tour at AT&T Byron Nelson

After a nearly 2 and a half hour rain delay with just three holes left in the final round, Kyoung-Hoon Lee’s earned his first career win on the PGA Tour to win the AT&T Byron Nelson on Sunday, which also gave him the final spot in next weeks’ PGA Championship. 29-year-old Lee finished the day with a 6-under 66, thanks to a pair of birdies on his final two holes to close out his final round. He flew three shots ahead of Sam Burns, too, who posted a 2-over 70 after leading for much of the week.

Lee, a Seoul native, only has one other top-10 finish this season, when he finished runner-up at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February. He qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in both of his full seasons on Tour. Lee will now get to compete at the PGA Championship next week at Kiawah Island in South Carolina, which will mark just his third appearance at a major championship. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open in 2014 as an amateur, and then missed it again in 2019.
