Simpson grabs two-shot lead

other Updated: Aug 22, 2011 01:22 IST

Webb Simpson produced an incredible late finish to his third round to snatch a two-shot lead at the Wyndham Championship on Saturday.

The American collected four birdies and an eagle in his last six holes to shoot a 64 for a three round total of 15-under-par 195.

That left him with a two-stroke lead on overnight leader Tommy Gainey, who fired a 69 at the Sedgefield Country Club, on a day when play was halted for more than an hour because of severe weather conditions.

Sweden’s Carl Pettersson, the only non-American in the top five, was tied for third with John Mallinger, one ahead of Daniel Summerhays.

A group of five players, including South Africa's multiple major winners Retief Goosen and Ernie Els, were a shot back at 10-under.
