How Suns guard Damion Lee became a golf fanatic

Damion Lee’s tee shot took two bounces off the cart path, hit a rock and rolled onto the green.

“That might be good,” his caddie said.

Lee had no idea. He had barely played the game and did not hit the ball more than five feet off the ground.

“My swing was ridiculous, terrible back then,” Lee said.

But this time, his ‘‘terrible” swing worked like a charm. The ball tracked to the cup and dropped in. A hole-in-one. In his first year playing golf.

He didn’t even know how to react. He just ran up and grabbed the ball. His playing partners urged him to put it back.

“They were like ‘You got to go do the video of you picking the ball up out of the hole,’ so I did that,” Lee said.
