ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Webb Simpson birdied seven of his last 10 holes at the Plantation Course on Thursday for a 7-under 65 and the first-round lead in the RSM Classic, the final PGA Tour event of the year.

The top-ranked player in the field at No. 12, Simpson is coming off a six-week break since tying for seventh in Las Vegas.

"I only have a week off before Tiger's tournament and we leave from there for the Presidents Cup, so I've had my time off," Simpson said. "I've been home a lot lately, so it's nice to get back at it."
