WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va., July 7 (UPI) -- Second-round leader Webb Simpson birdied the final two holes Saturday to extend his advantage after three rounds of the Greenbrier Classic.

The U.S. Open winner completed 54 holes at 14-under 196, two better than Troy Kelly, who fired a blistering 8-under 62 and jumped into second place at minus-12.

Sharing third were Ken Duke (65), J.B. Holmes (66) and Charlie Beljan (67) at 11-under 199.

Ted Potter Jr. carded a 6-under 64 for sole possession of sixth place at minus-10.
