Steven Alker has boosted his chances of returning to the PGA Tour next season.

He's finished eighth at the latest web.com tour event in Idaho to rise from a tie for 57th to 14th on the money list.

The top 25 after the next two tournaments will secure cards for next season.

Meanwhile, fellow Kiwi Tim Wilkinson has finished tied for 48th to slip from a share of 27th to 41st.
