The Palmerston North golfer Tim Wilkinson's dropped down the leaderboard at the PGA tour's Heritage Classic in South Carolina.

Playing for the first time in a month, Wilkinson's one under par 70 third round sees him four shots off the leaders in a share of 17th.

Wilkinson's playing on a medical exemption this year after missing the latter part of last season following surgery, and in six starts this year he's had to withdraw twice because of a different injury, and made only two cuts which have earned him $113,000.
