Simpson gives up lead

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- A year ago, Webb Simpson needed to play the back nine in even par to land in a playoff at The Greenbrier Classic.

This year, he entered the back nine with the lead -- until a bogey on the par-5 12th, where his second shot came up short of the green and he ran his pitch 40 feet past the hole. Simpson three-putted from there and fell a stroke behind Troy Kelly.

Things weren’t any better on the next hole, either, where Simpson drove it into a hazard and will likely make bogey at best.

Meanwhile, Kelly leads by himself thanks to a birdie on the par-3 11th.

Ken Duke has also pulled even with Simpson after an eagle on the 12th, where he hit his 230-yard second shot to 15 feet and made the putt.
