New Zealand No 1 Danny Lee has carded a six under par 65 to finish tied 13th at the Albertsons Boise Open on the web.com Tour in Idaho.

The 21-year-old from Rotorua, who missed out on the Fed Ex Cup Playoffs and will have to fight for his PGA Tour card in the Fall Series, had rounds of 66, 68, 71 and 65 at the Hillcrest Country Club in Boise for a 14 under par total.

Lee finished eight shots back from American champion Luke Guthrie who carded a 65 in the final round to win by four shots.

The former US Amateur Champion is currently in 230th place on the web.com Tour's Order of Merit after three events. He would need to win an event, and record a series of other good results, to have a chance of finishing inside the top 25 to secure his PGA Tour card for 2013.

However it is through his position on the PGA Tour that provides the best chance for him to retain his card. He currently sits at 159th on the Order of Merit and needs to climb inside the top 125 from the four Fall Series events to retain his card.

Manawatu professional Tim Wilkinson carded a two under par 69 in the final round to finish tied 19th at the Boise event.

The former PGA Tour professional, who is 66th on the web.com Tour Order of Merit, had rounds of 69, 67, 66 and 69 for a 13 under par total.
