Kiwi golfer Danny Lee has turned around a disappointing start to the PGA Tour's Deutsche Bank Championship in Massachusetts.

Starting his round on three over, Lee carded a six over 65 to be three-under for the tournament in a six-way tie for 17th.

Ryan Palmer maintained his position at the top of the leaderborad at eight-under, but he has been joined there by Australia's Jason Day. American's Matt Kuchar and Billy Horschel sit one shot back at seven-under.

Meanwhile, Steven Alker is tied for 47th after shooting an even-par 72 in the third round of the Tour's Hotel Fitness Championship in Fort Wayne, Indiana.


Alker has already secured his PGA Tour card for next year.
