Poulter builds 3-shot lead at Honda Classic
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Ian Poulter played bogey-free in the rain-softened conditions of PGA National for a 4-under 66 to build a three-shot lead going into the final round of the Honda Classic.
The third round was washed out Saturday because of nearly 5 inches of rain that toppled a few trees and flooded the bunkers. Players headed right back out to play as many holes as they could Sunday afternoon. The tournament concludes Monday.
Poulter rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on his opening hole and never came seriously close to dropping a shot. He was at 9-under 201.
Padraig Harrington started poorly and salvaged a 1-over 71, including a par on the 18th hole after hitting into the water. Patrick Reed had a 70. They were three shots behind.
