Overnight leader Bryson DeChambeau (75) faltered early with a triple-bogey at the par-five second and added two double-bogeys over his final six holes to sit seven shots back.

Carolina: 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).

A flawless Rory Sabbatini held a two-shot lead after the first round of the RBC Heritage in SC on Thursday only hours after being unsure if he would be fit to play.

He also sunk a knee-knocking, 12-footer for par on the 18th hole after his approach landed in a front-side bunker. "I've got a busy summer ahead, but I have a job to do here first".

The 42-year-old briefly took the lead with a 16-foot birdie on the par 3 seventh.

However, the two-time PGA Tour victor responded immediately with three consecutive birdies and added another five on his final nine holes, including at the last.

'This might be the first time that I've played so well with a triple bogey, ' Kim said.

"Confidence is definitely there from a perspective of feeling like I can be more aggressive right now", Poulter said.

Kim then birdied the par-5 fifth from three feet and closed on birdie at the ninth, blasting from a greenside bunker off the tee to six feet and making the putt for a 65.

Two weeks ago, the Englishman clinched a dramatic play-off win at the Houston Open, which earned him a spot in the field for last weekend's Masters. "Once you get on these greens, you feel like you have a chance to make putts", he said.

'I feel like I'm playing really solid, ' he said.
