Ian Poulter continued his resurgence on the PGA Tour by taking a one-shot lead into the final round of the RBC Heritage.
Poulter, who ended a five-and-a-half year worldwide winless run with Houston Open victory, fired four birdies in a bogey-free 67 at Harbour Town Golf Links to bolster his hopes of a second win in three weeks.
Luke List matched Poulter's 67 to share second spot with Si Woo Kim, with C.T Pan and Billy Horschel a further stroke back on 11 under in tied-fourth.
A joint-low round-of-the-day 66 lifted Kevin Kisner within three of the lead, as overnight leader Bryson DeChambeau slipped down the leaderboard after stuttering to a four-over 75.
DeChambeau started the day with a one-shot lead and doubled his cushion with a 15-foot birdie at the first, only to have to take a penalty drop on his way to triple-bogeying the par-five next.
Kim edged ahead with an eight-foot birdie at the second and cancelled out a missed par-save from six feet at the fourth to birdie the next, as Poulter got up-and-down from the bunker to birdie the fifth.
A 15-foot birdie at the next briefly gave Poulter the outright advantage, only for Kim to post back-to-back from the eighth to reach the turn one ahead.
Horschel made a big move up the leaderboard and joined Kim on 12 under by draining a 25-footer at the 13th, his fourth birdie in a five-hole stretch around the turn, as Poulter holed from eight feet at the 12th to make it a three-way tie at the top.
Poulter moved out on his at own at 13 under by posting a six-footer at the 13th hole and closed out a blemish-free card along the closing stretch, with List firing a hat-trick of birdies from the 14th to ensure he will go out in the final group on Sunday.
The threat of thunderstorms has seen the final round tee times brought forward, with players now going off split tees from 7am-9am local time (noon-2pm BST) to try and get the tournament finished.
