Ian Poulter and Mark Hubbard set the pace for good scoring through a brief spell of rain at Hilton Head. Jordan Spieth was pleasantly surprised to join the chase on Thursday in the RBC Heritage. Poulter holed a 30-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and finished with a 5-iron to 4 feet for another birdie that capped a 7-under 64, a round without a bogey but not without flaws. Hubbard kept his 64 together with two par putts at the end. They had a one-shot lead Viktor Hovland, Sebastian Munoz and Michael Thompson among the early starters.
