New Zealand's PGA Tour golfers have both bombed chances at big pay days and a chance to help retain their card.

Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson started today's final round of the FedEx St Jude Classic in a tie for 16th, but went backwards in this morning's final round.

Both recorded three-over 73s at the TPC Southwind course in Memphis to finish the $6.8m tournament at one-over and in a tie for 32nd.

Lee made two birdies, but added in three bogeys and a double in his round while Wilkinson was at two-under at one stage, but dropped five shots in the last 10 holes.

American Ben Crane won the tournament at 10-under par.

Next year, she's so close

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
