The Palmerston North golfer Tim Wilkinson has finished 12th at the latest Nationwide Tour event, the Mexico Open.

Wilkinson began the final round in a share of 26th but moved up 14 places with a six under par 66, to finish at nine under for the tournament, three shots behind the winner.

It's an important result for Wilkinson as he tries to regain his PGA Tour card.

He's currently 56th on the Nationwide Order of Merit and needs to finish the season inside the top 25, to automatically qualify for next year's PGA Tour.
