Tim Wilkinson has fallen five places down the leaderboard, but unlike Danny Lee, has safely made another valuable cut on the PGA Tour.

After two rounds of the Quicken Loans National, the tournament hosted by Tiger Woods, Wilkinson is five shots off the 36-hole lead on one-under par.

Posting a level par 71 at Congressional Country Club today, site of the 2011 US Open, Wilkinson has remained in touch of the leaders - albeit on a heavily congested leaderboard.

Wilkinson is chasing a four-man leading group on six-under, consisting of Australians Marc Leishman and Oliver Goss and American duo Ricky Barnes and Patrick Reed.

Another 19 players sit between the leading pack and Wilkinson, including major champions Justin Rose (-3) and Retief Goosen (-2).

Regardless of how he plays over the final two days of the tournament, Wilkinson will collect a valuable pay packet for making the cut.

Currently lying in a tie for 21st, if Wilkinson can crack another top 20 finish, the sum would probably push him up into the PGA Tour's top 100 earners for the year. The top 125 at the end of the season retain status on the tour automatically.

Meanwhile, Danny Lee has missed the cut by two strokes on five-over par.

Lee had a decent chance to make the weekend after an opening day 73, but fell to a 74 today.
