Danny Lee has reached the next round of the Fed Ex Cup playoffs after a nervy five hour wait following his final round at the Northern Trust in New Jersey

With the top 100 players qualifying for next week's Dell Technologies Championship, Lee finished in 98th spot after hovering on the bubble for most of the final day.

Lee fired a final round four-under 67 to finish the tournament at five-under and a share of 34th place, 13 shots behind winner Bryson DeChambeau.

The victory moves DeChambeau into top spot in the Fed Ex Cup standings.


Lee had five straight birdies on the back nine after a bogey on the ninth hole to take home around US$50,000 for his top 40 finish.
