The South African, who hasn't finished in the top 10 all season, said he felt much more confident with his swing.

"I found a good golf swing," said Els, who added that he's battling a back strain. "I was a little iffy on Wednesday. If you hit it in the rough a couple of times here you're going to score high. Ball-striking is very important."

Els was a model of consistency as he fired a two-under-par 68 along with Americans Brett Quigley, Bill Lunde and Kevin Kisner.

However, this score was later bettered by another American, Kris Blanks, who fired a 67.
