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. Jun 13 - 10:54 PM

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.
May 7 - 4:33 PM

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.
May 5 - 2:16 PM

Tim Wilkinson gears up for a showdown with the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio ahead of this week's Valero Texas Open.

The lefty arrives with a 6-for-8 record on the season, but ranks just 154th in the FedExCup race. Only one of his paydays has landed inside the top 30, a T21 at the Puerto Rico Open. As usual, he takes the fairways and greens approach, currently top 20 in driving accuracy but outside the top 185 in driving distance. Over his career, Wilkinson has racked up 17 top 25s in 122 starts (13.9 percent) meaning his upside is generally limited despite his cut-making abilities.

Tim Wilkinson is off and running to open the new season and will enter 2016 ranked 96th in the FedExCup race.

The lefty missed a whopping 19 cuts last season in addition to one disqualification. Overall, the 8-for-28 record was good enough to finish 184th in the FEC standings before earning back his card at the Web.com Tour Finals. He's built on that momentum to collect three paychecks to open up the season. Gamers should keep a close eye on his form early in the new year, because Wilkinson is a DFS players best friend when his game is on.

Tim Wilkinson waltzes across the border in preparation of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Kiwi is somewhat of a regular here at El Camaleón Golf Club, making his sixth start at the event. In five previous trips, he's returned with four top 40s and just one missed cut. The course history is nice and he also comes fresh off a T33 in Jackson, Mississippi, at the Sanderson Farms last week. Gamers should not be afraid to take a chance or two using the lefty this week.

Tim Wilkinson takes a look at Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass ahead of this week's Web.com Tour Championship.

The Kiwi has connected three straight cuts made to reach the Web.com Tour finale ranked 19th. Seeing that the top 25 all secure PGA TOUR cards for the 2015-16 season, Wilkinson has a lot to gain this week with a strong showing. This year was not filled with a lot of highlights as he finished 8-for-28 on the year. That could all change this week at TPC Sawgrass, as Wilkinson fights for his TOUR status.

Tim Wilkinson sits on the wrong side of the playoff equation ahead of this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Kiwi continues a disappointing 2014-15 season, recording a 8-for-27 record, thus far. This follows a career year in 2013-14, where Wilkinson posted six top 25s in 25 starts. He currently sits outside the top 150 in strokes gained tee-to-green, as well as putting. At 180th in the FedExCup standings, Wilkinson is making one last Hail Mary at Sedgefield Country Club.

Tim Wilkinson is in the published field at this week's inaugural Barbasol Championship played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.

Wilkinson enters the week 184th in the FedExCup standings on the heels of a 7-for-25 season with no top 25s. His season-best finish is a T29 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba back in November, 19 starts ago. Since then, he's missed 14 cuts and deposited four paychecks, with a best of T45 (FedEx St. Jude Classic) during that span. The 36-year-old went T50 at last week's John Deere Classic.

Tim Wilkinson authored a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and is the 54-hole early clubhouse leader at 5-under 205.

Wilkinson began his third round T53 at even par, and nine shots off the pace of 36-hole leader Brooks Koepka. On his round, the Kiwi split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed just 11 greens in regulation, but he made up for it with the flat stick, registering a sparkling 3.117 strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. In total, the 36-year-old smothered one bogey (at the par-4 10th) with six birdies, highlighted by a 24'3" roll at the opener. While early in the Saturday proceedings, Wilkinson currently sits T8, up 45 spots on the live leaderboard.

Tim Wilkinson finished in a share of 32nd place at last year's FedEx St. Jude Classic and returns this week for another look at TPC Southwind.

The Kiwi was 0-for-3 in his three St. Jude starts prior to last year. He arrived in much better form last year, missing just six cuts ahead of his T32. This season, the lefty is a mere 5-for-19 and ranks 181st in strokes gained. Gamers should let the form do the talking this week and avoid Wilkinson in fantasy contests.

Tim Wilkinson returns to TPC Sawgrass after a five-year recess for this week's PLAYERS.

The Jacksonville Beach resident arrives this week ranked 185th in the FedExCup standings, thanks to a 5-for-15 record. He's failed to play the weekend in each of two prior trips to TPC Sawgrass. Lack of length will not be an issue this week but Wilkinson needs to be in top form if he wants to contend against this week's strong field.

Tim Wilkinson looks to avoid his ninth missed cut of the season as he prepares for this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Kiwi has collected just four paydays on the season, but is 2-for-2 at the Shell. He currently ranks outside the top 140 in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and strokes gained:putting. Wilkinson is a long shot to get into contention this week, but a cut made is certainly within reason.
