The New Zealand golfer Steven Alker returns to the Web.com tour this week following his tie for 45th at the US Open championship in Philadelphia.

This week's event on the secondary US tour, the Rex Hospital Open in North Carolina, will be just the sixth start for Alker this year.

He's joined in the field by two fellow New Zealanders, Danny Lee and Tim Wilkinson, who's riding high in fourth place on the money list and is looking good for a return to the PGA Tour next year.
