U.S. Amateur champion Danny Lee wins Georgia Cup

ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Danny Lee, the 18-year-old from New Zealand who became the youngest U.S. amateur champion in history, built a 2-up lead at the turn and closed out Saxton with a par on the 17th hole for a 2-and-1 victory at The Golf Club of Georgia.

Lee took control with a 3-wood from the rough that carried 250 yards over a bunker to within 15 feet, setting up a two-putt birdie on the ninth hole for a 2-up lead. Saxton birdied the 10th hole, but hit his next tee shot out-of-bounds and never got any closer.
