Simpson to battle Donald for US supremacy

Simpson takes money list lead

BEN CRANE has beaten Webb Simpson in a playoff for the 2011 McGladreys Classic at Sea Island in Georgia.

Crane beat his fellow American at the second extra hole when the very consistent Simpson three putted.

Despite the loss, Simpson moved to the top of the US PGA Tour money list and took a commanding lead over Luke Donald.

Simpson and Donald will fight out the top spot next week at the season ending event in Florida with the Englishman needing at least a top two finish to have a chance.

Donald is pitching to be the first player ever to win money titles on the US and European Tour. He already has a comfortable lead in Europe.

Nick O’Hern was the best of the Australians today and in finishing tied for 6th did enough to secure his tour card for 2012.

Robert Allenby was the only other Australian to make the cut and finished at T32.
