Webb Simpson claimed the U.S. Open as his first major championship title when he posted a final-round 2-under-par 68 at Olympic Club to finish the week one stroke clear of Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson at 1-over 72-73-68-68=281.

Simpson looked to be headed down the wrong path, squaring bogeys on the second and fifth holes. He immediately bounced back with birdies on the sixth, seventh and eighth and added another on the par-4 10th before parring in the rest of the way. He split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 12 GIR while taking 28 putts with his long putter to make his way around Olympic Club. After tapping in, he watched from the clubhouse as Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell each had an opportunity to force a playoff with a birdie on the 18th. McDowell was the only one to find the putting surface, and when his birdie attempt slid by to the left, Simpson celebrated the victory.

Boo Weekley lasted just six (and a half) holes this week before withdrawing from the Quicken Loans National, citing tendinitis as the culprit.

There was no implosion today, but Weekley landed just one (of 7) greens in regulation before the early exit. His last hole was the par-4 seventh where he found a fairway bunker and then poked it out just 74 yards, leaving himself 124 yards to the pin. The 43-year-old was 2-over-par at the time of the WD. This will go in the books as the ninth career mid-tournament WD for Weekley, but first since the 2014 PGA Championship. This injury does not sound like it will have a long-term impact on his schedule but gamers should keep a close on him moving forward, using caution before re-investing.

Q-School winner Nathan Kimsey matched his lowest lap of the season, shooting a 5-under-par 35-31=66 to join Alexander Bjork in a tie for the lead on day one of the Open de France at Le Golf National.

The 24-year-old has missed nine of 15 cuts since gaining his card the hard way (he came through all three stages) but has shown promise with T9 at the Qatar Masters and T13 at the Indian Open. In Qatar, he opened with a 66 and he matched that total today thanks to a lap featuring seven birdies against two bogeys. The Englishman, who sits way down at 661st in the world rankings, posted an early birdie at 2 before giving it back with a bogey at 5. After wiping out a circle at 9 with a square at 10, it seemed as if the Englishman was destined to finish somewhere in the pack but he caught fire with five red numbers in his next six holes. He started the sequence at 11 and then nailed four straight at Nos. 13-16. The latter gain gave him a third '2' on his scorecard. Right now, Kimsey and Bjork enjoy a one-shot clubhouse lead over Tommy Fleetwood.

It was a case of current form trumping course form for Tommy Fleetwood in his opening round at the Open de France as the Englishman pieced together a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67, just a shot shy of clubhouse leader Alexander Bjork.

Fleetwood was Europe's standout at the U.S. Open, taking solo fourth spot, and he flew straight from Erin Hills to Germany last week to post T6 at the BMW International Open. But the signals were mixed this week as Fleetwood has missed four cuts out of four at Le Golf National and never even managed to break par in his eight laps. He did that in style today, keeping his card clean and picking up four birdies. Those gains came at 1, 3 and 8 on his front nine and at 14 on the back. European Ryder Cup skipper Thomas Bjorn, for one, will be delighted to see Fleetwood shining on next year's Ryder Cup course.

With a walk-off birdie at his final hole, Alexander Bjork completed an opening bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 at the Open de France, good enough for the outright clubhouse lead.

The Swedish rookie started at 10 today and played a solid first nine at Le Golf National with a series of pars broken only by a birdie-3 at 13. He did his best work after the turn, nailing back-to-back circles at 2 and 3, adding another at 6 and digging out a final red number at the par-5 9th. With the morning wave nearly complete, he has a one-shot lead over English duo Tommy Fleetwood (67) and Nathan Kimsey, the latter now playing his final hole. This is Bjork's tournament debut but on his last trip to France he took victory in the Challenge Tour's Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge so clearly he likes this part of Europe. He's currently ranked 49th on the Race to Dubai.

Quicken Loans player ambassador and odds-fave Rickie Fowler is in Potomac, Maryland, for the Quicken Loans National and checks in at 9th in the FedExCup standings.

At No. 9 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the 28-year-old is top-ranked in the 120-man field and a pre-tourney 7/1 outright. He's playing his sixth QLN with three previous top 25s and one top 10, a solo 2nd in 2015 (Robert Trent Jones GC, Virginia), where he was T2 thru 36 holes and 3rd thru 54 holes. The California native is 10-for-13 on the season with nine top 25s and six top 10s, all top-6 finishes or better, highlighted by his fourth TOUR title at the Honda Classic nine individual starts ago. He arrives off T2 at the Memorial, missed cut at the FedEx St. Jude, and T5 at the U.S. Open, where he was the 18-hole leader and no worse than T5 after any round (65-73-68-72). The Florida resident ranks 2nd on TOUR in SG: Total, 1st in scoring average (69.322) and 1st in total driving.

Billy Hurley III took home the trophy at the 2016 Quicken Loans National, held at Congressional Country Club, and makes his way back this week for a chance to defend his title, this time being hosted by TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.

The Naval Academy grad received a sponsor's invite into the field last year and parlayed it into his first career win. The Maryland resident took a two-shot lead into the finale and went on to win by three strokes over Hall of Famer Vijay Singh. The TOUR heads two miles down the road to take on a different venue this year but it won't change the comfort level for the BH3. At media day, the defending champ said, "I practice here a good bit, so maybe I can have a little leg up on guys because I've probably played the course more than anybody else on TOUR." Hurley III arrives on the heels of two straight missed cuts but previously rattled off six straight cuts made before that.

Jon Rahm is all set to make his European Tour Rolex Series debut in the Open de France at Le Golf National in Paris.

There have been times when the 22-year-old Spaniard has made golf look ridiculously simple this season, and he’s definitely made playing the European Tour look that way. Two WGC appearances (admittedly rather good ones: T3 at the Mexico Championship, runner-up in the World Match Play) and two majors start (including one missed cut) is enough for him to be ranked 3rd on the Race to Dubai. It’s a sign of how much cash is up for grabs at the top table, and how (comparatively) little in regular ET starts. The big question – how will he fare on this course? He said Tuesday: "This is probably one of the best golf courses I've ever played. I played it when I was 15 in the 2009 European Young Masters. I can't thing of anything bad to say about the golf course. It really is amazing." That said, it tests patience, and that is perhaps the biggest flaw in Rahm’s game right now. A lot of players with recent success at Le Golf perform well at Sawgrass. Rahm’s effort there this year? MC.

Over the weekend Gary Woodland witnessed the birth of his first child and will now take a pass on the upcoming Quicken Loans National to spend some quality time with the young one.

Woodland and his wife had some noted complications with their pregnancy, losing one of the twins that were due later in the summer. Over the weekend, they introduced Jaxson Lynn Woodland to the world, arriving 10 weeks early, as noted in his Twitter post. This is great news for the Woodland family after a tough spring. Woodland's timeline for a return is unknown at the moment. Chris Stroud will take his spot in the field at the Quicken Loans National.

World No. 99 Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 10-under 270, up four spots to a season-best T3, two swings shy of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After opening in 68-67-68, the 26-year-old began T7 on 7-under, five back of Spieth. Playing out of the fifth-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.060 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.468 tee-to-green. The South Korean-born New Zealander squared bogey-6 at six and bogey-5 at 14 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five birdies at Nos. 4, 7-9 and 15, three from between 19 and 34 feet, adding a hole-out 3 at the fourth from 51'5" away. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.549 SG: Putting. This is Lee's seventh top 25 of the season in 23 starts and third top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T5 at the Byron Nelson four starts ago. It's his second top 25 at the Travelers in five attempts (second straight), joining T25 on last visit in 2015.

World No. 28 Daniel Berger fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match overnight leader Jordan Spieth on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th, with Spieth holing out for birdie-3 from a green side bunker to claim the trophy.

After kicking off in 68-67-66, the 24-year-old began solo 3rd, three shy. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, scratching out 0.058 strokes tee-to-green. The Florida State product opened with bogey-5 at the first (failed scramble), but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 2, 13, 15 and 17, all from inside of 11 feet. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 2.023 SG: Putting, buoyed by three par-savers from between seven and 15 feet. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth holing out from 61'5" away, and Berger unable to match from the fringe from 49'5". Vying for his second win this season in 18 events, second in his last three starts, the Floridian settles for a second runner-up and drops to 0-2 in extra time. It's his second straight top 5 at the Travelers in two visits, finishing T5 last year after leading by three thru 54 holes and closing with 74.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and World No. 6 Jordan Spieth tossed up an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match Daniel Berger on 12-under 268, and then defeated him on the first playoff hole with a hole-out birdie-3 from a green side bunker at the par-4 18th.

The 23-year-old, the pre-tourney fave outright (8/1), led after each of the first three rounds before Berger erased a 3-shot deficit with 67 out of the penultimate twosome. He claims a 10th TOUR title in 120 career events (112 pro), second this season in 16 starts, joining the AT&T Pro-Am, where he was also the 54-hole leader. The Texas product improves to 4-2 in extra time and 8-for-13 as the 54-hole leader/co-leader, converting eight of his last nine. After opening in 63-69-66, he began with a 1-shot lead over Boo Weekley, three clear of Berger. The Texan conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.716 SG: Tee-to-Green though -1.635 SG: Putting. He cancelled three birdies at Nos. 1, 2, and 15 with bogeys at 4, 12 (3-putt from 51'9") and 14, taking 1.833 putts per GIR and 29 total putts. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth providing the final dramatics from 61'5" away.
