2020 RBC Heritage: Ian Poulter shares 1st-round lead

Englishman shoots bogey-free 7-under 64 to tie American Mark Hubbard atop leaderboard at Harbour Town

64: Scores for co-leaders Ian Poulter and Mark Hubbard, who opened the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage with matching 7-under rounds Thursday at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, S.C. Poulter, 44, a three-time Tour winner from England, birdied his last two holes and recorded his second bogey-free round of the season after posting zero unblemished rounds in the 2018-19 season. Hubbard, 31, an American seeking his first victory, needed only 21 putts to equal his career-low score on the PGA Tour. American Jordan Spieth bounced back from a triple bogey on his third hole, the par-4 12th, with six consecutive birdies on the back nine as he rallied to a 5-under 66 and a share of 10th place (scores).
