Wilkinson moves up PGA tour money list

7:26 am on 22 April 2009

The Palmerston North golfer Tim Wilkinson is comfortably inside the all-important top 125 on the PGA tour's money list after his tie for sixth at the Heritage Classic in South Carolina.

Wilkinson's banked $435,000 from his nine starts this year, and he's 110th on the list.

He'll be joined by another New Zealander in the field for this week's $11 million New Orleans Classic as 18-year-old Danny Lee makes his tournament debut as a professional.
