Another competitive opening round has Tim Wilkinson edging ever closer to retaining his PGA Tour card.

While a handful of players are yet to complete their first round at the Quicken Loans National, Wilkinson is tied 16th after carding a one-under par 70 at Congressional Country Club.

Wilkinson bogeyed two of the first four holes today but recovered well, finding birdies at the 6th, 13th and 15th to sign for 70.

In what is an extremely tight leaderboard, Wilkinson is four strokes back of Australian first round leader Greg Chalmers.

After changing his driver, irons shafts and wedges going in to the event, Chalmers, who has been struggled recently, was a band apart this morning, helped by an extraordinary day on the greens where he needed just 25 putts.

Elsewhere, New Zealand's Danny Lee is tied for 61st on two over par but still has an excellent opportunity to make the cut - which would also boost his chances of hanging on to his PGA Tour credentials.
