American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour in the 1960s and 1970s.

Schlee played full-time on the PGA Tour from 1966–1977. He had more than 30 top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events. His career year was 1973 when he won the Hawaiian Open and finished one stroke behind Johnny Miller in the U.S. Open. Schlee had four top-10 finishes in major championships: the aforementioned solo 2nd at the 1973 U.S. Open, a T10 at the 1975 PGA Championship, a T4 at the 1976 PGA Championship, and a T8 at 1977 Masters Tournament.

Schlee was forced into part-time play on the PGA Tour in the mid-1970s due to a series of health problems starting with back surgery in 1975 and followed by knee surgery in 1976. In 1980, Schlee began a teaching pro career at Industry Hills Golf Resort, east of Los Angeles, California. In 1986, Schlee wrote a book, Maximum Golf, which was a collection of his instructional theories and a tribute to his mentor, Ben Hogan.

Schlee died in a Costa Mesa, California hospital on June 2, 2000 of complications from Alzheimer's disease.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him for his rising sign in "Schlee Leading in Philly" by Associated Press, Lawrence Journal-World, 7 June 1974, p. 15: "I had a bad astrological aspect between Neptune and my rising sign, Aquarius."

A speculative time of 11:30pm gives mid-Aquarius rising, but Aquarius was also rising just after midnight on this date.
