HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) -- Charley Hoffman's quick start gave him a two-shot lead over U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson after three rounds of the RBC Heritage on Saturday.

Hoffman had four birdies on his first five holes to shoot a bogey-free 5-under 66 and keep out front at 11 under on a windy, cool day at Harbour Town Golf Links. Simpson also didn't make a bogey on the way to a 65, tying the lowest round of the tournament.

Kevin Streelman shot a 69 and was alone in third at 8 under.

The round started with 91 players making the cut, tying the tour high set in 1981. Jesper Parnevik moved the cut line Saturday morning to 2 over as he missed a 5-footer to complete his rain-delayed second round and opened the door for 21 players to keep playing.
