Tough day for Rd. 1 co-leader

CARMEL, Ind. – Webb Simpson went into Friday’s second round of the BMW Championship with a share of the lead after shooting an opening bogey-free 64. But the U.S. Open champ had one of those days you hope to quickly forget.

Simpson shot a 3-over 75 that include a disastrous tee shot at the par-3 sixth that resulted in a penalty shot and a double bogey. He also suffered four bogeys and not even a birdie on his final hole offered much consolation.

When Simpson walked off the course Friday, he was outside the top 30 on the leaderboard. His FedExCup projection went from No. 1 to No. 23. Simpson entered this week ranked 19th in points.
