Simpson makes turn with lead

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Webb Simpson just made the turn here at The Old White TPC, where he’s right back where he started: In the lead.

Troy Kelly briefly took the lead earlier in the day, but he’s back to 14 under and a stroke back with Charlie Beljan after bogeying the ninth hole.

Beljan, by the way, has the day’s best round going between those three at 3 under through 10 holes, while Simpson and Kelly are 1 and 2 under, respectively.

Simpson hasn’t made a bogey in 57 holes, though he’s made just one birdie so far today.

He did the same thing in the third round, birdieing only the par-4 seventh, on the front nine. Simpson then birdied four of his last six holes on the day.

Ted Potter Jr., meanwhile, is another stroke back at 13 under. He’s also 3 under through 10 holes.

Martin Flores and Ken Duke are three off the lead, as is Daniel Summerhays, though he has just a couple of holes to play.
