All K.H. Lee does at TPC Craig Ranch is win. He ought to have an honorary membership at the Dallas-area club at this point after doing the Texas two-step with wins in each of the course’s first two years hosting the AT&T Byron Nelson.

"“I think tee shot. I hit a really good iron shot and then I think the key here is iron shot, because a lot of guys make a birdie,” Lee was transcribed by ASAP Sports in 2022. “So when I hear par-3 or when I tee shot any holes, very, very comfortable, then make more confidence and then it helped this week.”"

In 2021, he fired 65-65-67-66 to win by three over Sam Burns, who is not in the field this week.

Last year, the South Korean went a shot lower with 64-68-67-63, but he only won by one over native son, Jordan Spieth.

Hideki Matsuyama was tied for third, so Lee had to earn it against a pair of headliners in 2023.

Lee has been a solid PGA Tour pro over the last few years, but these remain his lone victories.

The 31-year-old enters the week on a streak of four straight made cuts in stroke play events. The best of the bunch was last week when he finished T-8th.

Lee was not in the hunt to win at Quail Hollow, but posting four rounds under par at a tough venue like he did was no small feat.

He’s a well-rounded player who’s a positive in every strokes gained category this season. He’s 38th on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained per round (.787) and is 39th in SG around-the-green (.261).

I can’t quite predict the Lee threepeat (the Leepeat?), but I expect him to still use this event as a personal ATM.
