Update: Simpson ties for the lead

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- A pair of 4-foot birdie putts on Nos. 15 and 16 have pushed Webb Simpson into a first-place tie with Michael Thompson during the second round of the McGladrey Classic. Simpson, who finished tied for 12th in this event last year, opened with a 7-under 63 but was 1 over after six holes Friday. He strung together two birdies on Nos. 7 and 8 before his pair on the back nine to pull even with Thompson, who played in Friday’s morning wave. Also making a move is Billy Horschel. Playing in the same group as 21-year-old Bud Cauley, Horschel is the second player in the afternoon wave (after Simpson) to reach 9 under. Horschel has seven holes remaining in his second round.
