Webb Simpson leads Greenbrier after 3rd round

Posted:

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson shot a 5-under 65 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Greenbrier Classic.

Simpson had his second straight bogey-free round to reach 14 under on the The Greenbrier Resort's Old White TPC course. Last year in the event, he briefly led entering the final nine holes, but faded to a tie for ninth.

Troy Kelly was second after a 62. He had hip-replacement surgery in September 2010 after being diagnosed with arthritis.

Rookie Charlie Beljan, J.B. Holmes and Ken Duke were 11 under. Beljan had a 67, Holmes a 66, and Duke a 65.

Holmes had part of his skull removed in September 2011, four months after he started having vertigo symptoms. He returned to the tour in January.
