Ian Poulter takes RBC Heritage lead with four-under-67 on Saturday
Ian Poulter shot a 4-under 67 on Saturday to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the RBC Heritage, putting him in position to clinch his second title in three weeks, his last win came at the Houston Open.
Before April, Poulter was winless for over five years on the PGA Tour and is just a solid round away from adding another title to his name.
Poulter enters the final round at RBC Heritage with a shot lead at 13-under-200 over THE PLAYERS 2017 champion Si Woo Kim and Luke List, both have been on Top-5 since the opening round. World No.1 Dustin Johnson posted 72 on Saturday to remain at T-46th and 10-shots back from the leader.
The play was suspended due to bad light on Saturday and an early start of 7 a.m is scheduled for the final day. Players will be grouped in threesomes on both tees due to expected bad weather on the afternoon of Sunday.
Poulter was tied for the second spot on Friday with a blemish-free 64 and aided his good run with another bogey-free round of 67 on Saturday. Kim and List follow him by a shot at 12-under-201. Kim was leading the field alone for a while with birdies on the eighth and ninth holes, but fell back with a bogey on the 12th and could not catch up with speeding Poulter.
Luke List is looking forward to his first win on the TOUR after a T-2nd finish at the Honda Classic. List took off with three consecutive birdies on Nos. 14-16 after adding two birdies on his front nine for a four-under-67 after a matching 7-under-64 on Friday with Poulter.
Following Kim and List by a shot are C.T. Pan and Billy Horschel at 11-under-202 with their matching rounds of four-under-67.
