Steven Alker picked up four shots in his final 10 holes in the Web.com Tour's Chiquita Classic in North Carolina, the second event in the tour's finals series.

The Hamilton golfer dropped a long way off the pace with two early bogeys but birdied 18, his ninth hole, and picked up further shots on two, three and six.

At the end of his round he was in a tie for 30th with his two-under 70.

The Kiwi No 2 is well off the lead, held by Canadian Adam Hadwin at nine-under in the NZ$1.2 million tournament.

Alker has already ensured he will return to the PGA Tour, and join Kiwis Tim Wilkinson and Danny Lee, after finishing 10th on the Web.com Tour's order of merit.
