Tim Wilkinson and Danny Lee are in line for handy paydays should they finish the latest PGA Tour tournament well today.

Wilkinson and Lee were both inside the top-40 of the $7.49 million Crowne Plaza Invitational tournament in Texas.

Lee shot a two-under 68 to move from 47th to a tie for 37th at two-under for the tournament while Wilkinson's one-under 69 had him in a tie for 18th at four-under par.

Wilkinson was just three behind a four-way share of the lead.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama raced to the front with a six-under 64 on moving day and was joined at seven-under by a trio of Americans - David Toms, Chad Campbell and Chris Stroud.

Wilkinson again showed he is one of the best long-putters on the tour, sinking a 48-foot effort for birdie three on the 373m par-four 10th.

Lee's front and back nines were identical. He started both with two birdies, followed by a par, a bogey, then five more pars.

Meanwhile, Michael Hendry fell out of contention at the Kansai Open on the Japan Tour following a five-over 77 in the third round.

He was tied for 38th at four-under par, 10 shots behind the leader.

David Smail missed the cut.
