WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- Thanks to a birdie on the par-4 seventh, Webb Simpson has moved back into a share of the lead with Troy Kelly at The Greenbrier Classic.
Whether they’ll be able to finish could be another matter.
A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for Greenbrier County, among other surrounding counties, until 10 p.m. ET.
According to the National Weather Service, thunderstorms are expected to fire up along the Blue Ridge and Alleghany Mountains (see the radar picture from Weather.com above). Some of those storms are expected to be strong to severe with high winds.
The good news: There’s only a 30 percent chance of precipitation until 6 p.m., when it increases to 75 percent.
Barring a playoff, the tournament should end right around 6 p.m.
