Ian Poulter eyes second trophy in two weeks

Share

Ian Poulter continued his resurgence on the PGA Tour by taking a one-shot lead into the final round of the RBC Heritage.

Luke List and reigning Players Championship victor Si Woo Kim are tied for second at 12 under.

Two weeks ago, the Englishman clinched a dramatic play-off win at the Houston Open, which earned him a spot in the field for last weekend's Masters.

"Still standing - that's a good thing", Poulter said after his bogey-free round at Hilton Head - his sixth PGA Tour event in as many weeks.

Two shots behind DeChambeau were Chesson Hadley (68), past RBC Heritage victor Brandt Snedeker (64), Luke List (64) and first-round leader Rory Sabbatini (70).

Horschel made a big move up the leaderboard and joined Kim on 12 under by draining a 25-footer at the 13th, his fourth birdie in a five-hole stretch around the turn, as Poulter holed from eight feet at the 12th to make it a three-way tie at the top.

Twice he had to take a penalty and ended the day with three birdies, four bogeys and a double to miss the cut by as much as four shots.

American Bryson DeChambeau, who led after day two at Harbour Town, fell off the pace with a four-over 75.

Dustin Johnson also struggled Saturday, firing a 1-over 72 to finish his third round tied for 41st at 3 under.
