Timothy David Wilkinson (born 26 July 1978) is a professional golfer from New Zealand.



Wilkinson was born in Palmerston North, and was educated at St Peter's College. [1] He won the New Zealand Stroke Play Championship in 2000 and turned professional in 2003.

Wilkinson joined the second tier Nationwide Tour in 2005, but failed to win enough money to graduate directly to the PGA Tour. He finally obtained his PGA Tour card by finishing inside the top 25 at the 2007 qualifying school. [2]

Wilkinson had a successful rookie season on the PGA Tour in 2008, the highlights being an outright third at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and finishing joint runner-up at the Valero Texas Open, two shots behind winner Zach Johnson. He made over one million dollars in prize money and finished 92nd on the final money list. [3] [4]

In 2009, Wilkinson played in the final pairing at the Verizon Heritage, but faded to finish T6. [5] A thumb ligament injury curtailed his season and saw him gain a major medical extension of his playing rights. By June 2010 he had played the 12 events this extension afforded him, and had not earned enough money to retain his status. [6]

Wilkinson finished fifth on the 2013 Web.com Tour regular season money list to earn his 2014 PGA Tour card.

Those who are on the top 30 of the money list at year's end are given PGA Tour memberships for the next season.
