Charles Howell III shot a final-round 64 to finish 16 under par, and he currently sits in a tie for fifth.
Howell earned a spot in the British Open last week as the highest non-qualifier at the AT&T National at Aronimink, he shot a final-round 66 to move into a tie for third behind Nick Watney and K.J. Choi, who were already qualified for the event.
"I played there at St. George's in '03, and it's an interesting golf course," Howell said. "I remember a lot of it, and it was my first Open, so it's a place that's special to me, and I'm actually quite looking forward to going back."
Howell also said he was glad he played this week, even though British Open conditions will be vastly different.
"No matter where the event is, I'd rather be playing going into one as opposed to sitting there thinking about it," Howell said.
