New Zealand golfer Danny Lee's campaign to regain his PGA Tour card next year started badly with a missed cut at the season-opening Panama Claro Championship on the Web.com Tour.

The 22-year-old had rounds of 74 and 71 for a five-over par total, missing the cut in the $US600,000 tournament by three shots at the Panama Golf Club in Panama City.

Lee failed to retain his PGA Tour card in his rookie season last year and is trying to fight his way back to the big time on the second-tier Web.com Tour.

The top 25 players on the Web.com Tour's money list at year's end will earn a card next year. 

The next 50 players will vie with players ranked 126-200 on the PGA Tour money list in a four-tournament playoff series at the end of the season, when a further 25 cards will be up for grabs.

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
