ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- Webb Simpson (5 under through 14 holes)
is the early leader at the McGladrey Classic, but the guys one shot
back may be on the minds of more players in the afternoon wave.
Four players -- Richard S. Johnson, Michael Letzig, Scott McCarron
and Paul Stankowski -- of the six tied for second are currently
outside the top 125 on the money list. Their presence near the top
of the leaderboard gives guys like No. 123 David Mathis, No. 125
Matt Jones and No. 127 Paul Casey a little something extra to think
about before teeing it up this afternoon. It’s far too early
to start predicting what the leaderboard will look like Sunday, but
with such a high quantity of players outside the top 125 near the
top of the leaderboard, at least a couple can be expected to make
major moves this week. This leaves the current bubble boys knowing
that they must at least make it to Sunday, or risk being on the
outside looking in when the TOUR heads to Disney for next
week’s Fall Series finale.
