Tim Wilkinson is in the hunt to qualify for his first major golf tournament.

The Kiwi left-hander is tied for second midway through his final round at the weather-hit US Open qualifying event in Jacksonville, Florida.

Wilkinson's two-under par through eight holes to be in a seven-way tie at five-under par, with the top four securing a place at Oakmont Country Club in Pennsylvania next week.

A long delay for thunderstorms has forced play to be suspended for the day, with the qualifying tournament to resume tomorrow.
