Webb Simpson crafted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day third round of the 98th PGA Championship to post 6-under 204, up 15 places to T7 and tying Branden Grace for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.
The 30-year-old was blemish-free 2-under thru six holes on Saturday (4-under total) when play was suspended. He returned on Sunday morning to play his final 12 holes in 2-under, camouflaging a lone bogey-4 at the ninth (failed sand save) with birdies on Nos. 11, 16 and 17. Simpson had a chance for a trip-birdie finish, but 3-putted the par-5 18th for par from 62'9". He posted week bests in fairways, 11 (of 14), and greens in regulation, 15, and has a little over four hours to kill before his final round is scheduled to begin (1:28 p.m. ET). Jul 31 - 9:35 AM

Webb Simpson back-pedaled to an even-par 38-33=71 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 10-under 274, down two places to solo sixth, seven strokes shy of champion Billy Hurley III.

The 30-year-old played out of the antepenultimate twosome in the finale and began in a two-way T4 on 10-under, five back of Hurley III. He circled three birdie-3s on his opening nine but erased them with bogeys on Nos. 3 (3-putt from 35'6"), 7 and 9, and a double bogey-5 at the second, 3-jacking from a mere 11'10". The Wake Forest alum overcame his first-nine letdown with a blemish-free second half, birdieing the par-3 10th from 8'4" and the par-4 18th from 9'7". It's his personal best at the QLN in his fifth appearance, previously T8 in 2011, and just his second top 10 of the season in 14 starts, though sixth top 25, including three in his last four events.

Webb Simpson orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach 10-under 203, five shy of 54-hole leader Billy Hurley III.

The 30-year-old began Moving Day on 7-under (T4), four back of overnight co-leaders Hurley III and Jon Rahm. Five birdies against two bogeys later, he's still T4. The Wake Forest alum squared the second and the ninth, missing a 5'2" par-saver at the former, and 3-putting the latter from 11'6", but erased those with birdies at Nos. 4, 7, 8, 16 and 17. His split included a 23'5" roll for birdie-2 at the seventh with the other four each dropping from inside of nine feet. Simpson also drained three par putts from between five and seven feet. He peppered 11 (of 14) fairways and is T1 in that stat thru 54 holes at 78.57 percent (33/42), and is also T1 in GIR at 83.33 percent (45/54), despite a week-low 13 in R3.

Webb Simpson coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-35=68 during round two of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 7-under 135 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens in regulation. It was that ball-striking that put him in position to score throughout the day. His flat stick had other plans, as he splashed home just one putt from outside six feet, a 14'9" birdie roll at the par-4 11th hole. Despite the lack of lengthy putts made, Simpson walked off the course gaining 0.681 strokes putting, which is fantastic when you compare it to his 2015-16 baseline of -0.331 strokes per round. That same weapon (the putter) will be the wildcard that determines his fate over the weekend.

Webb Simpson fashioned a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of the Memorial for a 54-hole total of 11-under 205, up 21 to T11 with play still in progress.

The 30-year-old arrived for his sixth Memorial off a T3 last week at Colonial, his first top 10 of the season on 11 starts. He began the third round on 5-under (T32) after opening in 69-70. Simpson peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a sterling 6.048 SG: Tee-to-green though a disappointing -2.048 in SG: Putting. He circled four birdies, three the conventional way, and adding a pitch-in from 32'5" at the par-3 16th to complete his scoring. The most memorable moment however, was a hole-out from 145 yards out at the par-4 ninth for eagle-2. Simpson missed six birdie tries from inside of eight feet.
Jun 4 - 3:57 PM

Webb Simpson rallied for a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in today's final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to conclude his third appearance on 13-under 267, down one spot into a two-way T3, four back of champion Jordan Spieth.

This was the 30-year-old's first start since welcoming his fourth child on May 10th and first appearance at Colonial CC since back-to-back missed cuts in 2009-10. He co-led after 36 holes with 65-67 and began the finale in a two-way T2 on 11-under, one shy of Spieth. Playing out of the final threesome, he bobbed and weaved to a two-birdie three-bogey 36 and dropped to tied-sixth at the break. Simpson righted the ship from there, coming home in bogey-free 3-under, circling the 11th from 11'2" and back-to-backs on 16 and 17, both from inside of seven feet. This is his first top 10 of the season in 11 starts and first since T6 at the Wyndham in his home state last August.
May 29 - 7:33 PM

Second-round co-leader Webb Simpson pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 11-under 199, down one into a two-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Grouped with Spieth in final threesome, the 30-year-old began the third round co-leading with Martin Piller -- the third member of the final threesome -- one clear of four players, including Spieth. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 2.807 SGTTG but a pedestrian -0.336 in SGP. The North Carolinian circled six against three bogeys, including a walk-off 5 at the last, lipping-out a par-saver from just from 38 inches. He carded five conventional birdies, all from 12 feet and in, and added a hole-out birdie-3 from a greenside bunker at the 14th. Simpson's bogey at the last dropped him out of the final pairing on Sunday.
May 28 - 7:20 PM

Webb Simpson kept his foot on the gas pedal with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, grabbing an early claim of the clubhouse lead at 8-under 132.

The Wake Forest product split seven (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation en route to a four birdie, one bogey effort. His lone blemish came at the par-4 seventh hole as he whiffed on a 4'6" par-saving attempt. On the flip side, he splashed in four putts from outside nine feet, so the new Matt Kuchar method of putting seems to be working out for Simpson who arrived this week ranked 184th in strokes gained putting. He's currently 18th in the field in that regard. The elite ball-striker should continue to give himself birdie chances over the weekend, so it will be intriguing to see if his new putting stroke holds up under more pressure as the week progresses.
May 27 - 7:14 PM

Webb Simpson styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him at T2 just one stroke off the leader Bryce Molder.

Simpson started on the back nine and splashed in four putts from outside five feet before making the turn at 3-under. That wouldn't be notable for most golfers, but the Wake Forest product entered the week ranked 184th in strokes gained putting as he continues to make the conversion to a non-anchored putting stroke. The flat stick really picked up steam on his inward nine, firing in a 21'8" birdie on the par-4 second and then a 19'4" birdie bomb on the par-4 fifth hole. Believers in the infamous nappy factor will place all the credit on Simpson's wife having their fourth child just two weeks ago. Regardless if that's true or not, Simpson is now a serious threat to contend this week, as long as the putter can remain relatively warm. He arrived with an 0-for-2 record at Colonial Country Club but this is his first visit since 2010. This also matches his low round of the season (Sony Open/R3; CareerBuilder/R2).
May 26 - 7:53 PM

Due to the birth of his fourth child, Webb Simpson has withdrawn from the field at this week's PLAYERS. Aaron Baddeley will replace him in the field.

Simpson found himself in a slump recently, posting five straight finishes outside the top 25. It reached its peak last week when the Wake Forest product missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship, playing right in his backyard. There was still a small angle for gamers to jump back on board this week, as his caddie Paul Tesori is a Ponte Vedra local, and knows TPC Sawgrass like the back of his hand. Gamers should take note of this pre-tournament WD and remove Simpson from all lineups. On the bright side, this is not injury-related and Simpson should return to action rather quickly.

Webb Simpson will walk to the course this week at the Wells Fargo Championship, as he plays the event right in his backyard.

Simpson is a member of Quail Hollow Club and actually lives right on the course. He gets plenty of rounds in throughout the year, on his weeks off. Becoming a member has paid dividends as he sports top 40s in each of his last five starts here. That includes a runner-up finish last year and a fourth-place finish in 2012. QHC is more catered to bombers, but Simpson's local knowledge puts him straight to the front of the line when looking for contenders this week. Despite his 137th ranking in the FedExCup standings, he is viable in all fantasy formats this week.

May 4 - 8:31 PM

Webb Simpson posted a career-best finish at last year's Masters and returns this week for the 80th edition, looking to build upon that effort.

Simpson recorded a T44 in his 2012 Masters debut and then returned with two straight missed cuts before last year's T28. Overall, he's signed for rounds of 2-over 74 or worse in six of his 12 rounds here at Augusta National. Simpson arrives with an 181st ranking next to his name in the strokes gained:putting category. His putting woes combined with poor course history make him a long shot to contend this week in Augusta, Georgia.

Apr 6 - 8:50 AM

Webb Simpson returned to action with a 1-under-par 36-34=70 opening round at this week's Valspar Championship.

The Wake Forest product was a last-minute WD at the Honda Classic two weeks ago, so it's nice to see him return without an issue today. Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course is the site of four top 20s for Simpson, so it wasn't too surprising to see him circled four birdies, offsetting a three-pack of bogeys. Simpson entered the week ranked 169th in strokes gained:putting and his 4-foot birdie miss on the par-5 14th really showcased that ranking. However, he also managed to splash in three birdie bombs from outside 15 feet on the day, the longest from 23'2" on the par-4 seventh. If Simpson can keep putting to field average or better then he'll remain in contention throughout the week.
Mar 10 - 6:49 PM

Webb Simpson has pulled his name from the field at this week's Honda Classic. He will be replaced by Dawie van der Walt.

Matt Lincoln of CBS12 spilled the beans with a tweet that said "We are down a former major winner @TheHondaClassic - @webbsimpson1 has withdrawn (from PGA tour official)". There is no reason cited at this point. He was on the grounds of PGA National yesterday, so it could be anything from a injury tweak to a personal matter. Regardless, we will update if any further news comes out about the WD. This is the second week in a row that van der Walt sneaks into the field mid-week as an alternate.
Feb 24 - 11:37 AM

Webb Simpson carved out a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 199, up 20 places on the live leaderboard to T5.

Simpson is 6-for-6 at Waialae CC with a best of T9 in his 2009 debut. He opened last year's edition with a career-best 62, T1 after 18 holes, but faded to T13 closing in 66-72-69. This year's visit opened with a pair of 67s, circling five birdies and squaring two bogeys on each loop. The 30-year-old squared two bogeys in Saturday's play as well, but he upped his birdie total to seven on 13 greens in regulation, including three straight to open his round. Six of seven found the bottom of the cup from inside 12 feet with a long of 16'5" coming at the par-4 second.
