Tim Wilkinson has dropped back 15 places, but remains well positioned on the PGA Tour this weekend.

Starting the second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial Country Club in second place, Wilkinson followed up his first round 66 with a one-over par 71 today to drop back into a tie for 17th.

On three-under par, the New Zealander is four strokes adrift of American leader Brice Garnett.

Meanwhile, it's also a better week for fellow Kiwi Danny Lee, who has made the cut.

Lee (71, 69) moved up 17 places today and is on even par, tied for 47th at halfway.

At the top, Garnett has a one stroke lead from fellow Americans Chris Stroud and Robert Streb. A group of seven players are a further shot back, including big-hitting Dustin Johnson and in-form Jimmy Walker.
