After three days at the RBC Heritage, Jason Dufner is one round away from his first victory since the Career Builder Challenge in January of 2016.

Dufner shot six-under par bringing his tournament total to thirteen-under at the Harbour Town golf course in Hilton Head, SC.

His two Eagles on the front nine were nearly erased by three bogeys, but Dufner fired four Birdies on the back nine to put himself in prime position to win.

Trailing Dufner by just one stroke is Graham DeLeat. The Canadian was two-under par on the day and will be playing with Dufner in the final pairing tomorrow.

Right behind those two on the leaderboard are Webb Simpson and Kevin Kisner who are both 11-under par.

Just one week after The Masters, many of the top ranked golfers in the world take this week off. Guys like Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas are doing what they did last year by taking the week off in the Bahamas.

It is by no means “The Masters” but with 12 players within five strokes of the lead, a lot of scrambling can go on that first page of the leaderboard throughout the day.

This may be Dufner’s time to get a win, but at the end of the day, look for Kisner to pull through with the victory.

Kisner has been putting the ball very well, and has been excellent at getting Birdies all year. His seven-under round Friday was followed by a five-under round today in which he did not bogey. He seems to have a good feel for the course and if he can figure shoot four-under tomorrow, which seems very possible, it should be good enough to get him the victory.

Weather is calling for good conditions heading into the final day.
