Since winning the Greenbrier Classic in July, Danny Lee has tied for third, fourth and sixth in three of the four following events. The results are beginning to pay dividends.

He is now tenth in the FedEx Cup standings ahead of Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy, and vaulted to a world No. 57 ranking after starting out the season at No. 220.

After his latest performance at the WGC-Bridgestone the 25-year-old is now ranked within the top-10 in the world excluding U.S. and European players. To categorize him as such may seem oddly specific, but it’s important in the scope of the 2015 Presidents Cup.

If he keeps up his play, he will secure a spot on the international team led by Captain Nick Price and Vice Captain K.J. Choi.

Furthermore the event will be held in South Korea, a country that plays an important role in his life despite the fact that he claims permanent residence in New Zealand.

“The reason I played so many events was I really wanted to make it into the Presidents Cup this year,” he told The Korea Times. “It’s back in Korea. I was born there. I speak Korean. My grandparents and parents are Korean and most of my family are in Korea.”

Now that Lee is in the inner circle, all he has to do is stay within it through four more PGA Tour events.
