Wilkinson set to tee up again in Las Vegas

7:50 am on 14 October 2008

It'll be icing on the cake for the Palmerston North golfer Tim Wilkinson between now and the end of the PGA tour season after his career best result yesterday at the Texas Open.

Wilkinson's tie for second behind last year's US Masters champion Zach Johnson took his earnings in his rookie year on the big tour to 1.86-million dollars, securing full playing rights again for 2009.

There are four official tournaments left on this year's tour, and the 30 year old left-hander is playing again this week at the Justin Timberlake Open in Las Vegas.
