Danny Lee has consolidated his position inside the top-25 on on the United States' second-tier golf tour with a strong finish at the South Georgia Classic.

The New Zealander carded a final round of three-under par 69 to finish the 72-hole tournament with a four-under tally of 284, climbing 12 places to finish in a tie for 21st.

It was Lee's fourth top-25 finish in his last five starts on the Web.com Tour, placing him 14th on the money list. 

The top-25 at the end of the regular season automatically qualify for a PGA Tour card for 2014.

The 22-year-old was one of only eight players of the 65 who played the weekend to break 70 in the final round at the Kinderlou Forest Golf Club in Valdosta, three birdies and no blemishes ensuring a strong finish after he went backwards in the third round with a 74.

American Will Wilcox, at 15-under par, was a four-stroke winner, despite closing with a one-over 73 today.

The only other Kiwi in the field, Tim Wilkinson, was disqualified from the tournament before the start of the second round on Saturday (NZT) after opening with a five-over par 77.

According to local media, tournament officials discovered Wilkinson had signed an incorrect scorecard following his opening round. He had written the wrong score down for a hole, which is ground for disqualification.

The tour moves to the University of Georgia Golf Club for the Stadion Classic, starting Friday (NZT).

Meanwhile, David Smail secured a top-25 finish at the latest tournament on the Japanese tour, the Tsuruya Open.

Smail had rounds of 67, 71, 70 and 69 to finish at seven-under par, a share of 25th earning him 984,000 yen ($12,000) for the week.

New Zealand No 1 Mike Hendry missed the cut by one shot after rounds of 69 and 73 left him at even-par.
