New Zealand golfer Tim Wilkinson is again on track to make the cut on the PGA Tour while compatriot Danny Lee is again on track to miss it.

Wilkinson sits in a tie for 28th at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in California after shooting a solid two-under 70 on the easier of the tournament's two courses, the North Course, today.

Wilkinson was a model of consistency, starting and ending with a birdie and making 16 pars in between.

Lee, playing the tougher South Course, had a bogey-laden four-over 76.

He's missed the last three cuts and barring something spectacular tomorrow, looks on track to have another weekend off. Lee turned just one over, but couldn't get going on the front nine - his back nine - where he dropped shots on four holes.

He did birdie the his final hole, but his 76 has him struggling in a tie for 126th in the 156-man field.

The North Course is considerably easier and 15 of the top 16 on the leaderboard, including leader Stewart Cink played that course.

This tournament also marks Tiger Woods' first tournament of the year and the world No 1 has won this event seven times.
