Simpson Takes 2-Stroke Lead Into Greenbrier Classic Final Round
Webb Simpson takes a two-stroke lead over Troy Kelly into the final round of the PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic.
Simpson, who fired a 5-under-par 70 yesterday, finished the first 54 holes at 14-under 196, followed by Kelly, who shot an 8-under 62 for 198 at Old White TPC Course at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
“When he’s not lurking around on Saturdays and Sundays, it makes it a little easier I think for other guys,” Simpson said, referring to Woods.
Ken Duke, J.B. Homes and Charlie Beljan share third place with an 11-under 199 and Ted Potter Jr. follows one stroke back.
Kelly has returned to tournament play following hip- replacement surgery in September 2010.
“For me to just play this game at a high level, I had to go get it done,” Kelly said.
Woods and Mickelson both missed the two-round cut for the first time together in the same tournament.
