DeChambeau leads Heritage after 36 holes, Johnson makes unconventional par

Golf-Poulter grabs one-stroke lead at Hilton Head Poulter Catches one-stroke lead

Bryson DeChambeau birdied four of his final six holes to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the RBC Heritage in SC on Friday, a career-best seven-under 64 moving him ahead of Ian Poulter (64) and Kim Si-woo (65). Ian Poulter and Si Woo Kim are one shot behind at -9, while first-round leader Rory Sabbatini, Chesson Hadley, Brandt Snedeker and Luke List are in a tie for 4th at -8.

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. Now, he's one more solid round away from adding another title to his dramatic win at the Houston Open on April 1.

"I was just happy to be able to play today", Sabbatini, who is 190th in the world rankings, told Golf Channel. While the bird reportedly emerged unharmed, Kraft's ball ricocheted into a lake guarding the front of the green and he eventually made a double bogey.

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

"I think anytime you can birdie 18 on this golf course, it's key because 18 is not a very forgiving hole", he said.

The family are known as 38, Soumya Thottapilly Sandeep Thottapilly , 4 1; 12, Siddhant Thottapilly; 9, and Saachi Thottapilly. The authorities, who had originally said the body found was of a child, said an autopsy would be performed early next week.

Second-round leader Bryson DeChambeau had the confident stride of a pending victor with his first solo 36-hole lead as a pro - at least until the third round got going. That's changed. "I never really thought I'd play well here, but it's kind of all come together", he said.

Even more remarkable than Poulter's play may have been Kim's scoring.

Rahm and Pastor cheered the crowd as they finished at five-under, while England's Andrew "Beef" Johnston was in a group on four-under with 40 players within three shots of the lead.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson (72) was in a distant share of 41st place and 10 shots behind Poulter after mixing four bogeys with three birdies.

Due to the possibility of strong afternoon thunderstorms on Sunday, the final round will feature threesomes going off split tees starting at 7 a.m. ET (1100 GMT).
