Greensboro: Even during a rough start, Webb Simpson never lost his cool. He was rewarded with one of the hottest stretches of his young career.

It put the local favorite in position for his first PGA Tour win.

Simpson shot a 6-under 64 on Saturday to move to 15-under 195 and take a two-stroke lead after three rounds at the Wyndham Championship.

The 26-year-old Raleigh native and former Wake Forest player had four birdies and an eagle during his late charge at the final event before the playoffs start next week.

Tommy Gainey (69), who led or shared the lead after each of the first two rounds, was 13 under.
