New Zealander Tim Wilkinson has bounced back with two birdies in his last five holes to be in a tie for 13th at the midway stage of the PGA Tour event in North Carolina.

Wilkinson carded a one-over 73 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to be three-under after 36 holes, five shots off the pace.

The 37-year-old left-hander, who was in a share of sixth overnight, made a slow start after beginning on the 10th tee, with three bogeys and a birdie in his opening six holes.

There was another bogey on his back nine at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte before he made his comeback.

Compatriot Danny Lee shot a one-under 71 to be one-under for the tournament and will go into the weekend in a share of 35th.

It could have been much better for Lee, who had three birdies during a four-hole stretch on the front nine, but his finish included bogeys on the last two holes.

Overnight co-leader Andrew Loupe also had a 71 to sit alone at the top of leaderboard that features Americans in the first 10 positions.

Loupe has a one-shot advantage over Roberto Castro, whose 66 was the day's best score.
