Inclement weather will shorten the amount of time Ian Poulter will sleep on the 54-Hole lead at the RBC Heritage as all the remaining golfers will tee off early tomorrow morning.
PGA Tour officials ordered that players will tee off in threesomes on hole #1 and #10 Sunday, in order to conclude the final round before forecasted inclement weather in Hilton Head.
Poulter, a winner two weeks ago in Houston, shot a 4-under-par 67 to post -13 for the tournament playing in the penultimate group on Saturday.
The Englishman will look for his fourth career win, and he’s looking forward to the opportunity to add some tartan to his eclectic clothing collection:

Luke List and Si Woo Kim share second place at -12, and will play in the final group with Poulter beginning at 9 AM off the first hole.
The former Vanderbilt golfer List, on tour since 2007, is still looking for an elusive first professional victory.
List feels after a second-place finish at the Honda Classic in February, he’s ready to get the monkey off his back:
Playing in the penultimate group will be CT Pan and Billy Horschel, who sit tied at -11, and Kevin Kisner, the low score among Palmetto State natives at -10.
Horschel and Pan sat in second together as they approached the 18th hole but both made bogey on the last to drop two behind the lead.
The former Florida Gator Horschel looks for his first win since last year’s Byron Nelson Championship, while C.T. Pan’s only two wins have come in Canada.
Last year Wesley Bryan made history becoming the first South Carolina native to win the RBC Heritage.
Kisner, who hails from Aiken sits at three shots off the lead and remains in the best position to extend that trend.
