Lee qualified for the fourth and final major of the golfing year following a solid showing at the Canadian Open.

His 32nd place was enough to keep him within the Top 70 of the PGA Tour money list and, along with Fox, earn a place in the field at the Quail Hollow club in Charlotte.

It will be Lee's third PGA Championship - having made the cut in his last two appearances.

Fox will be making his first appearance at the tournament but it will be his second major in a row after he failed to make the cut in windy and challenging conditions at the British Open last month at Royal Birkdale.
