Kiwi golfer Tim Wilkinson again put himself in position for another handy pay-day and more vital FedEx Cup points on the PGA Tour.

Wilkinson was to start this morning's (NZT) final round of the Quicken Loans National tournament at even par and in a tie for 21st.

The Manawatu left-hander yesterday shot a one-over par 72 at the Congressional Country Club. His third round included two bogeys on the front nine, but the 35-year-old wrestled the momentum back with birdie threes on the eighth and 15th holes.

A bogey five on the last cost him a share of 16th, but Wilkinson was in good shape to improve on his 108th position in the FedEx Cup standings.

A top-20 finish is projected to move Wilkinson inside the top 100 on the standings.

The top 125 at the end of the season retain their card for next year.

Wilkinson has won $734,222 this season in 19 PGA Tour events. He's made 13 cuts, finished inside the top 25 four times and inside the top 10 twice.

American Patrick Reed was the leader after the third round at six-under. Kiwi Danny Lee and Tiger Woods, who was returning from injury, both missed the cut.

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
