Rotorua golfer Danny Lee has dropped down the leaderboard after shooting a one over par 71 at the latest US PGA Tour event in West Virginia.

Lee's five shots off the pace set by American Billy Hurley, who shot a seven under 63.

Lee was just a shot off the lead in a tie for second after opening with a five under 65, but he's now in a share of 13th at the Greenbrier Classic.

Fellow New Zealander Tim Wilkinson also fired a 71 and is tied for 49th, seven shots off the leader.
