Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Webb Simpson birdied two of his final four
holes Saturday to jump into first place after three rounds of the Wells Fargo
Simpson, one of three co-leaders after the first round, carded a three-under
69 and finished 54 holes at 14-under par 202. His strong finish allowed him to
emerge from a crowded field and take a one-stroke lead at Quail Hollow.
Ryan Moore (68) and D.A. Points (69) played bogey-free rounds and share second
place at 13-under 203.
World No. 2 Rory McIlroy, the 2010 champion, had two bogeys but still managed
a six-under 66. That round moved him up nine places into fourth, which he
shares with second-round leader Nick Watney (72).
