Tour Report: Simpson shares lead; Tiger gets 1 back


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — With bad weather having delayed play earlier in the day for about 90 minutes, players will be on the golf course until dark here at The Old White TPC.

By the time the round ends, we could have a new leader, too.

Webb Simpson just birdied the par-5 12th to get to 3 under on the day and 8 under for the week, putting him in a tie with clubhouse leaders Jonathan Byrd and Charlie Beljan.

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, is just hoping to make it to the weekend.

His chances are fading with the daylight.

Woods missed a 13-footer for birdie on No. 9 once play resumed, then bogeyed Nos. 10 and 11. He bounced back with a birdie on the par-5 12th, and he still has a par-5 to come, but he’s currently three shots outside the cut at 2 over for the week.
