New Zealand golfers Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson finished down the field today at the Canadian Open, the latest stop on the PGA Tour.

Lee finished in a tie for 34th and Wilkinson in a tie for 53rd as fast-finishing South African Tim Clark pipped Jim Furyk for the tournament victory by one shot at the Royal Montreal club.

Clarke birdied five of the last eight holes to storm his way up the leaderboard and past Furyk who could only birdie the 17th on the back nine.

Lee slipped 12 places on a disappointing final day as his fourth round car ended even-par. It was a rollercoaster ride of six birdies and six bogeys that eventually saw him finish the tournament at 4-under, failing to push on from such a promising start that featured a second round 65.

Wilkinson was two shots back on the finally tally. He shot a 2-under 68 in his last round that could have been much better had he not double-bogeyed the final hole.

He moved up six places over the course of the day. But it was a catchup day for him after carding a five-over 75 in yesterday's third round.

Lee's effort earned him US$26,980 and took his season earnings to US$705,365. His FedEx Cup ranking lifted one place to 104.

Wilkinson has now earned US$724,499 this year but his FedEx Cup ranking slipped a place to 108.
