Howell, without a PGA Tour victory since 2007, fired a blemish-free 64 on the Seaside course - one of two courses used this week at Sea Island - to get to 13 under and open up a three-shot lead over Champ and Jason Gore.

Gore recovered from an opening-hole bogey to card a seven-under 63, with Champ joining him in a share of second after closing his blemish-free round with four consecutive birdies.

Beginning on the back nine, Howell holed a 15-footer at the 14th and followed a two-putt gain at the next with another at the 16th, before birdieing the 18th to reach the turn in 31.

Howell drained a 20-footer at the fourth and converted an even longer putt on his penultimate hole to increase his cushion, while Champ fired seven birdies to bolster his hopes of a second win of the season.
