Simpson, who has just one Champions Tour win, had the 36-hole lead for the first time in his tour career.
Simpson, the 1987 U.S. Open champion, sank a 25-footer for birdie on 10 and came right back with an eight-foot birdie putt at the 11th to move into a logjam atop the leaderboard. He sank another long birdie putt at 13 to take the outright lead and also made birdies at 14 and 15.
