Webb Simpson picked up shots on five of the first nine holes in a round of 64 for a share of the lead at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.


Simpson followed up a 68 on the opening day with an eight-under round ahead of the weekend, while fellow leader Chris Kirk’s only blemish was a bogey on the 18th.



Ireland’s Seamus Power put together a round of 66 in Detroit to sit a shot off the pace in a six-way tie for third, alongside Bryson DeChambeau who was agonisingly close to a hole-in-one at the ninth.

Also joint third is Matthew Wolff, who strung together six-straight birdies on his way to a 64, while Scotland’s Russell Knox, Patrick Reed, Bubba Watson and Jason Day were among those missing the cut at five under, alongside defending champion Nate Lashley.
