Ryan Palmer vaults into contention in Houston

Humble, TX. - Ryan Palmer started the third round at the Shell Houston Open at five-under after carding first and second rounds of 71 and 68.

The Texas native heated up in is third round, to match the temperatures at Redstone Golf Club.

Birdying the first hole got his round off to a good start, to try and make a move up the leader board.

Two pars on No.3 and No. 4 would lead him to a birdie on the par-five, 4th. Then, his round would really start to catch fire.

Palmer went on to birdie his next four holes, from No. 7 through No. 10 to propel him up the leader board to 11-under.

His score card read 2, 4, 2, 3 over that four hole span. For those of you counting at home, that's 11 strokes in four holes. That is how you make up ground on moving day.

Though Palmer went on a tear in the middle of his round. The 35-year old's round would cool off the rest of the back nine.

He would not give any strokes back to the field. However, he was not able to car another birdie, over his last eight holes.

Palmer is currently in a tie for sixth at 11-under par along with Jeff Maggert. Who has just made the turn here at Redstone and the Shell Houston Open.
