A bogey-laden three-over 74 and bunker trouble stopped Tim Wilkinson from pushing for his first PGA Tour title, but the Kiwi is still set to move up the FedEx Cup rankings.

Wilkinson started the final round of the Quicken Loans National in Bethesda, Maryland this morning in a tie for 21st, but had five bogeys in his final round, including three in a row on the Congressional Country Club course in the US.

He ended the tournament at three-over par, having earlier recorded rounds of 70, 71 and 72. After turning in even-par, Wilkison dropped shots on 10, 13, 14 and 15 as his usually handy short game deserted him.

Wilkinson was ranked the 61st best player on the PGA Tour out of bunkers, but twice bombed shots out of the sand.

At the completion of his round this morning, Wilkinson was in a tie for 25th and if he was to stay at that position - there were still a number of players yet to finish their rounds - he would move from 108th in the FedEx Cup standings to 102nd. The top 125 at the end of the season retain their PGA Tour card.

A short time ago Englishman Justin Rose had a one-shot lead and was five-under par with five holes to play.
