Tim Wilkinson coasted to a 7-under-par 32-31=63 during the opening round of the Wyndham Championship, staking out a spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.
Wilkinson split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation. It was his short game that shot him up the leaderboafrd. The silky lefty splashed home a trio of putts from the 10-to-16 foot range and also gained 2.418 strokes around-the-green. The Kiwi entered the week ranked 165th in the FedExCup standings, so he'll need to keep his foot on the for three more rounds if he wants to catapult himself into the Playoffs and retain his TOUR card in the process. If not, it will be time for him to take his talents to the Web.com Tour Finals. Today's round falls one shy of his career-low round (8-under 62 in R3 of the 2008 Sony Open). Aug 17 - 1:55 PM

World No. 328 Tim Wilkinson embarks on his sixth Wells Fargo Championship and like the majority of the max-field of 156, will get his first look at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The 38-year-old is 1-for-5 at the normal venue, Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte. He missed his first four cuts before posting T11 last year, where he was T7 thru 54 holes (68-73-70), closing in 1-over 73. The Kiwi, who lives in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, had his best showing of the season last week in New Orleans while teamed with Michael Thompson. The pairing was T8 thru 54 holes (71-66-68), losing ground with 6-under 66 in Four-Ball, but the T14 was his first top 15 of the season. Elsewhere, his best is T17 at the Puerto Rico Open, buoyed by a season-best 63/R2. Overall, Wilkinson is 8-for-12 with four top 25s and is still winless on TOUR in 148 career starts.

New Zealand's Tim Wilkinson styled a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during the third round of the Puerto Rico Open, positioning himself two strokes off the pace at 13-under 203.

Wilkinson did not look too nervous, a day after tying the course record. He returned to Coco Beach Golf and Country Club and striped 11 (of 14) fairways today. With preferred lies in effect for a second straight day, the Kiwi was able to lift, clean, and place his ball quite frequently. That led to four birdies with offset a lone bogey. The lefty is no stranger to success at this event (T6 in 2008 debut) and he has a great chance to post another low finish, entering Sunday in a share of fourth place. The 38-year-old is still in search of his first career PGA TOUR title.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 325 Tim Wilkinson painted a bogey-free 9-under-par 29-34=63 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, tying the clubhouse lead with Chris Stround and matching the low round of the week -- and course record -- with first-round leader Trey Mullinax.

The Web.com Tour grad is the sixth player (seventh time) to put 63 on the board at Coco Beach. His career low in a now-433 career rounds is 8-under 62/R3 of the 2008 Sony Open, but this would be a new low in relation to par. Beginning on No. 10 tee, the 38-year-old went out in 2-under with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15, and then came home in 7-under 29, holing out for eagle-3 at 2 and circling five straight on holes 4-8. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 17 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.438 putts per GIR and 25 putts total. This is the Kiwi's sixth appearance in Puerto Rico and after an opening 71, improves to 3-for-6. He has two prior top-25 finishes with one top 10, a T6 on debut in 2008.
Mar 24 - 2:02 PM

Tim Wilkinson had a short week at the Honda Classic, withdrawing after 12 holes, citing a back injury. UPDATE: Wilkinson returned from injury at the Valspar Championship, opening with a 1-under 70 in round one.

The Kiwi was making his sixth appearance at this event, posting a 4-for-5 record with a WD in 2010 (food poisoning). This time around he opened with a double bogey, adding another double at the par-3 fifth, and also sprinkled regular bogeys at Nos. 3, 10, and 11. That placed him at 7-over thru 12 holes and he called it quits from there. Wilkinson arrived with five straight cuts made, so gamers shouldn't lose interest, long-term, over this one bad outing.

Tim Wilkinson grinded out a 3-under-par 36-33=69 while taking on Pebble Beach Golf Links in round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Kiwi opened his round on Thursday at the 10th tee. He swallowed a double bogey out of the gates but he bounced back tremendously with birdies in five of his next six holes. The scoring was all thanks to ball-striking as all five birdie rolls came from 8'2" or shorter. Wilkinson coasted to the finish line with 11 straight pars, despite some blustery conditions. The 38-year-old will head to Monterey Peninsula Country Club next for a second-round appointment with the Shore Course. Wilkinson is no stranger to success at this event, as he already owns a T7 (2014) on his AT&T Pro-Am resume to pair with a trio of missed cuts.
Feb 10 - 1:24 PM

World No. 325 Tim Wilkinson readies for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and has a course rotation of Pebble Beach (PB), Monterey Peninsula (MP) and Spyglass Hill (SH).

The 38-year-old is 1-for-4 at Pebble Beach with a T7 in 2014, one of three top 10s that season in 25 starts. He finished 119th in the FedExCup standings in 2014, which is a career best in six prior campaigns. The New Zealander, by way of Jacksonville Beach, Florida, is a two-time Web.com Tour grad (2013, 2016). He finished 132nd in the FEC standings last season but got his playing privileges back after collecting $27,425 in the three-event WCT Finals, good for 32nd in Finals money but 25th if you exclude The 25. Wilkinson, 50th in the Priority Rankings to begin 2016-17, kicked off with two missed cuts but has connected four straight cashes, two for top 25s, including a best of T21 at The RSM Classic.

Tim Wilkinson posted a 1-for-3 record ahead of the holiday break, heading into the new year ranked 113th in the FedExCup race.

The Web.com Tour grad highlighted his fall schedule with a T21 at The RSM Classic, posting four straight sub-70 rounds in the process. It was his 139th career start on the PGA TOUR and the 21st time cracking the top 25. His steady cut-making results make him relevant in DFS, but he's found just two podium finishes in his career, which limits his upside in most fantasy formats. Wilkinson will remain a steady option for weekly gamers in 2017, particularly on courses where distance is not a prerequisite.

Tim Wilkinson enjoyed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 10-under 200, up 28 spots on the live leaderboard to T7, one back of 54-hole clubhouse leaders Scott Langley and D.A. Points.

The 38-year-old went out at 9:51 AM ET as a solo after his playing competitor (Spencer Levin) withdrew. He responded to a lone bogey at the par-3 12th (3-putt from 53'8") with four straight birdies on 13-16, adding first-nine birdies at holes 5, 7 and 9. The New Zealander, who entered the week 139th in the FedExCup standings, found nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, contributing to 1.857 in SG: Tee-to-Green. All seven of his birdies fell from inside of 12 feet and he made six- and seven-foot par saves at the first and second en route to 2.162 SG: Putting.

Tim Wilkinson settled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 to collect five points during round two of the Barracuda Championship, climbing to 14 points at the midpoint.

The Kiwi split 12 (of 14) fairways but found just 11 greens in regulation. Once he found the green surfaces, his putter was up and down. He splashed home three putts from outside nine feet but also missed a 4'9" birdie attempt that he'd like to have back. Wilkinson found trouble off the tee at the par-5 18th hole to close his round with a bogey, but walked off the course with 14 points, putting him at T7 on the live leaderboard. In four previous appearances in Reno, he's collected two paychecks, both leading to T21 or better finishes.

Tim Wilkinson will make his first appearance in a major as he turns his attention to Oakmont Country Club for the 116th U.S. Open Championship.

The Kiwi has been a DFS darling this year since his salary never seems to increase. His salary remains low this week but the stakes will be raised. The lefty will be making his 129th career PGA TOUR start but first in a major. Looking at other big events, he's 0-for-3 at THE PLAYERS, and has just two starts in the FedExCup Playoffs (a missed cut at The Barclays in 2008 and T71 at The Barclays in 2014). Currently ranked 28th on TOUR in strokes gained for the season, he makes for an intriguing option, but gamers should be weary of his lack of experience in events of this magnitude.

Tim Wilkinson conjured up a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 72-hole aggregate of 13-under 267, up three spots into a six-way T4, two shots back of a two-man playoff involving 54-hole leader Brooks Koepka and eventual champ Sergio Garcia.

The Kiwi was making his 12th start on the season with a previous best of T11 in his last start at the Wells Fargo. It was his sixth AT&T and first top-20 finish. Wilkinson began the finale on 11-under (T7), five back of Koepka and was looking for his maiden title in his 126th career start. After a 2-under first half and a third birdie at the par-4 11th, he had climbed into a four-way T2, but wobbled a bit with bogeys at 12 and 18 overshadowing a final birdie at the 13th. This is the 37-year-old's eighth career top 10 and first since T8 at the 2014 Barracuda Championship.

Tim Wilkinson twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach 11-under 199, up 39 places on the live leaderboard to T7 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Wilkinson's 63 was the low round of the day.

The 37-year-old is making his sixth appearance with a best of T22 in 2014. He shot an opening-round 66 that year which was his best at TPC Four Seasons in 16 laps before today. The Kiwi split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation recording 5.953 strokes gained: total at last check. He began off No. 10 tee and circled the 11th, 15th and 17th, each from inside of eight feet, and saved the big bombs for his inward half. Wilkinson penciled birdies on 2 and 6, from 37'5" and 25'9", respectively, and capped with a walk-off 3 from 11'9" at the par-4 ninth.

World No. 748 Tim Wilkinson crafted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 5-under 211, up seven on the live leaderboard to T6.

This is Wilkinson's fifth WFC and his first cash. Prior to this week, his scoring average in eight laps was 74.50 with one red number in R2/2014. The Web.com Tour grad began the third round on 3-under (T13) after opening in 68-73. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.636 putts per GIR. The 37-year-old penciled birdies on Nos. 1, 7, 10 and 13, squaring bogeys on 4 and 16 on failed scrambles. His split included a 15'9" birdie roll on the par-4 first and a 22-footer at the par-5 10th. The Kiwi is 8-for-10 on the season with T21 at the Puerto Rico Open his lone top-25 finish.

Tim Wilkinson orchestrated a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during the first round of this week's Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Kiwi split just five (of 14) fairways and landed just seven greens in regulation on the day. His short game made up for his lack of ball-striking today, as he swallowed just one bogey to go along with a five-pack of birdies. Most notable were 34'3" and 39'3" birdie bombs on the par-4 16th and par-4 18th holes, respectively. Wilkinson will need to maintain his short-game magic if he wants to remain in contention as the week progresses.
