Simpson looks for another title shot at Greenbrier

Posted:

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- Webb Simpson hopes to have a shot at another late lead at The Greenbrier Classic -- and this time hang onto it.

He was in first place on the back nine in each of the past two years before late bogeys took him out of contention. Simpson will get another chance starting Thursday when the tournament begins on the Old White TPC course.

With the British Open two weeks away, only four golfers in the top 20 world rankings are entered in West Virginia -- Phil Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen, Bubba Watson and Simpson.

Also in the field is Bill Haas, who's coming off last week's win at Congressional. He says this week has a different feel because it marks the first road trip for his newborn son, William Jr.
