Kiwi golfers Tim Wilkinson and Danny Lee are in the hunt after two rounds of the Wells Fargo Championship on the PGA Tour.

Wilkinson is in a share of 13th at three-under after recording a one-over 73, dropping six spots down the leaderboard.

It is still the best start of the season for the left-hander, who has now made nine cuts this season but has yet to record a lucrative top 20 finish.

Wilkinson did well to resurrect his round, sitting at three over for the day with five holes to play before recording two birdies on his way in.

He is two shots ahead of Lee, who posted a one-under 71 to move to one-under for the tournament.

Lee had the opposite road home to Wilkinson, being three under for his round before finishing with two consecutive bogies to slip down the leaderboard into a share of 36th.

Andrew Loupe leads the tournament at eight-under par, while Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler are in a share of fifth at five-under.

Meanwhile, Ryan Fox has made the cut at European Tour event in Morocco.

Fox recorded a second straight two-over 74 to make the cut on the number, 10 shots off the lead.

It is Fox's second consecutive made cut, after making the weekend at the China Open last week, where he subsequently carded a third round 80.
