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.
