Simpson wins in Las Vegas

(Continued)

LAS VEGAS —

Chesson Hadley, second entering the final round, had a 70 to drop into a tie for fifth at 16 under with Luke Guthrie, Troy Matteson and Charles Howell III. Guthrie and Matteson shot 64, and Howell had a 65.

Matteson had seven straight birdies — on Nos. 9-15 — to fall one short of the tournament record set by Jerry Kelly in 2003.

“It was a really good ball-striking round,” Matteson said. “As a matter of fact, when I got to 16, I thought I was going to get that eighth one and I ended up hitting the pin and almost going into the lake, so I would have had a tap-in there. But you know what, all in all it’s a great end to my week. I didn’t quite figure it out in the middle (of the tournament), but I certainly put it together today.”
