Chalmers well placed in PGA Houston Open

Hossler, playing in the final group of the day, matched Dunne's 69 on a warm day in Houston.

Poulter kick-started his third round in the $7m event with four birdies in his opening eight holes.

Rickie Fowler, who started Saturday one shot off the lead, fell away after a great start had seen him open with three birdies in his first four holes.

Hossler opened with a bogey but didn't drop another shot the rest of the day, finishing with a wedge from 114 yards to inside 3 feet to save par on the tough par-4 18th.

He came to the last and duly delivered the birdie to tie Poulter, and much to the wild applause of a very partisan Texas crowd.

Victory would be particularly sweet for Poulter, who was told last week that he had qualified for the Masters after reaching the last eight of the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play, only to be told just before his quarter-final that there had been a miscalculation.

It is important for both Microsoft's client and server businesses, of course, but it's also fundamental to the Azure platform. Foley further says Panos Panay will get a Chief Product Officer title but otherwise remains the head of Microsoft devices .

Poulter, who delayed his decision to compete in Houston, said he had still been irked by the mix-up when he arrived this week, shooting a 73 in the first round as he attempted to force the pace. He would go on to lose to Kevin Kisner in that round and later found out that he would move up only to 51st, just one spot outside the money.

"All the good golf that was out there yesterday, I've got to go back out there and back it up today", he said at the Sky Cart after completing his round.

After an opening round 74 that saw him hovering near the tail of the field, Poulter has been sublime as he chases a place in the Masters field which he was incorrectly led to believe he had already secured last week. So people will back against me, that's fine, I'll go and do my job. Yeah, maybe I was a bit angry on Thursday, maybe I was kind of forcing, trying to force my way into a tournament.

And when quizzed what he thinks his emotions will be tomorrow as he also looks to capture just a third PGA Tour title, Poulter remarked: ": "I'll have no emotion at all. "We weren't able to play together at Texas, but when I left they had a stud taking over".

Australian Greg Chalmers (65), Argentine Emiliano Grillo (67), American Kevin Tway (69) and Ireland's Paul Dunne (69) were on 204.

Henrik Stenson and Matt Kuchar remain in contention at 11 under after matching three-under 69s.
