Jason Dufner posted the low round of the day in the RBC Heritage on Saturday, a six-under par 65 that allowed him to take the 54-hole lead at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, S.C.
Simpson was the hottest player on the course when the round began, going 4-under over his first six holes including an eagle-3 at the par-5 fifth.
DeLaet was second after a 69, the Canadian's third straight sub-70 round after having just five in five previous appearances here.
Donald's Ryder Cup team-mate Ian Poulter is tied with former US Open victor Webb Simpson in a share of third on eight under after both carded second rounds of 68. Ames opened with rounds of 67 and 68 to take a one-stroke lead over five players into the final round.
Cameron Smith had an even-par 71 to be the best-placed Australian at five under in a tie for 20th.
Cristie Kerr and Alena Sharp, the 35-year-old Canadian looking for her first LPGA Tour victory, were tied for second.
Molinari eagled No. 18, one of two eagles for him on the back nine, to go to 9 under. And Dufner believes that's why he has a one-shot lead heading into today's final round of the RBC Heritage.
Luke Donald, a four-time runner up in the US PGA Tour's Heritage, pitched in for a birdie at 18 on Friday to seize a share of the halfway lead alongside Graham DeLaet.
Donald bogeyed the 11th after leaking his drive into rough down the right but bounced straight back with an 11-footer on the next and chipped in at the last for a closing gain.
Miguel Angel Jimenez (68) and Marco Dawson (68) were 7 under.
Ames won the Mitsubishi Electric Classic on Sunday for his first PGA Tour Champions title, easily holding off Bernhard Langer at TPC Sugarloaf.
John Daly topped the group at 6 under, rebounding from a first-round 73 with a 65. Defending champion Woody Austin opened with a 69.
Dufner's approach landed in the bunker up against the wood facing and he had to chip sideways, remaining in the bunker, before blasting out and taking double bogey.
RABAT, Morocco - Gregory Havret took the outright lead at the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco as he moved to 6 under par after the second round on Friday.
"I need to tighten up the driving a little bit but the rest of the game feels pretty solid so I'm pretty excited about that and I've given myself another chance which is great". The Italian fired in eight birdies and made just one bogey to jump 38 places.
Both men made hard work of No. 18 in the playoff, with Molinari ending up over the back of the green with his third shot and Dunne in a greenside bunker.
