The New Zealand golfer Tim Wilkinson has climbed six places to be in a tie for 7th heading into the final round of the latest PGA tour event in Connecticut.

The Palmerston North professional fired a third round 3 under par 67 to move to 9 under for the tournament, 4 shots behind the leader American Ryan Moore.

Wilkinson shot six birdies including four on the back nine to surge up the leaderboard but the 35-year-old was pegged back by three bogies, two of which were on the last two holes.
