Kiwi golfer Danny Lee has followed up a promising Masters performance by missing the cut at the RBC Heritage tournament in South Carolina.

After shooting a one over 72 in the first round, Lee scored a four over par 75 in the second round.

Lee finished the second round at five over for the tournament, missing the cut by three shots.

His tournament ended with a triple bogey on the 18th hole.

Kiwi world number one Lydia Ko has slipped further down the leaderboard at her latest LPGA event, the Lotte Championship in Hawaii.

Ko sits at a tie for 32nd place heading into the final round, after a solid but unspectacular one under par performance in round three.

Leaders Katie Burnett and Su-Yeon Jang are ten shots clear of Ko after three rounds of play, both at 12 under par.
