Bryson DeChambeau shoots career-best 64, Danny Lee three shots back

Bryson DeChambeau, the 2017 John Deere Classic champion, shot a career-best 7-under 64 on Friday to take the lead into the weekend at the RBC Heritage Classic.

World No. 31 Poulter enjoyed a bogey-free trip around Harbour Town on Hilton Head Island to reach 13-under for the week and move one shot clear of South Korea's Kim Si-woo (68) and American Luke List (67).

With thunderstorms forecasted for the final day, tournament officials have taken the decision to bring the final round tee times forward in a bid to miss the stormy conditions. "I simply tried to simplify what and wasn't even trying to hit on it simply put this get the greens".

"I was just happy to be able to play today", Sabbatini, who is 190th in the world rankings, told Golf Channel. He drained a 52 foot putt on the par-three 14th hole for birdie and posted another birdie on 18 when he sank a seven footer.

DeChambeau's first event as a professional was at Harbour Town Golf Links in 2016.




"Confidence is definitely there from a perspective of feeling like I can be more aggressive right now", Poulter said.

DeChambeau made a late charge to grab the lead with four birdies over his final six holes.

Kuchar, that also begun around the back 9, birdied his last two holes to join a group putting off two shots off the guide, whilst Huh fired a six-under 30 within an electric front nine in he left four birdies along with the eagle at the par-five fifth.

The leaderboard is a nice mix of notable names and unheralded contenders with most of the sport's top-ranked players taking a little break after the Masters. That's changed. "I never really thought I'd play well here, but it's kind of all come together", he said. Had he hit a power line, for example, Kraft could have replayed the shot. Instead, Johnson had bogeys on four of his first 11 holes before rallying to finish with a 72 and was 10 shots in back of Poulter.

Due to the possibility of strong afternoon thunderstorms yesterday, the final round was to feature threesomes going off split tees starting at 7am.
