Resurgent Poulter takes 54-hole lead at RBC

Resurgent Poulter takes 54-hole lead at RBC

Ian Poulter put himself firmly into contention for a second PGA Tour win in the space of a fortnight after a flawless 64 on the second day of the RBC Heritage.

Kuchar tied for 28th at the Masters last week.

'This might be the first time that I've played so well with a triple bogey, ' Kim said. He posted nine birdies along with a triple-bogey six on the par 3 14th where he was assessed a two-stroke penalty for touching the sand when he scrubbed the fringe of a bunker following a shot. "I've got a busy summer ahead, but I have a job to do here first".

Kim quickly erased the error from his mind - and the scorecard - with birdies on the next three holes to regain his lost shots.

'I'm figuring out a lot of great things that are helping me on the golf course, ' he said.

He then opened the front nine, his second nine of the round, with three consecutive birdies - a 25-foot putt at one, a four-footer at two and a bomb from 43 feet at the third. "I have a great feel around the greens and I feel really confident around the greens".

Englishman Poulter, who won at Houston earlier this month, went out with the early starters and made seven birdies in a bogey-free trip around the course.

"It's nice. If you keep bogeys off your card you're generally going to have a good round". "Once you get on these greens, you feel like you have a chance to make putts", he said. Sabbatini, who started on the back nine, finished his bogey-free round with seven birdies, including back-to-back ones to close out the round. After short birdie putts at the first and fifth he drained a 17-footer for birdie at the par-3 seventh.to join Kim on 133. "Confidence is definitely there".

"I was just happy to be able to play today", Sabbatini, who is 190th in the world rankings, told Golf Channel.

Sharing fourth on 134 were South Africa's Rory Sabbatini and Americans Chesson Hadley, Brandt Snedeker and Luke List.
