Webb Simpson styled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Valspar Championship, staking out a spot inside the top 10 after 18 holes.
The Wake Forest product opened on the back nine and picked off birdies at his opening two holes (11'6" at the par-10th and 6'1" at the par-5 11th). Simpson continued to split fairways, missing just 3-of-13 on the day. He would add circles after the turn at the par-4 third and par-5 fifth holes before swallowing his lone bogey of the round. The blemish came at the par-3 eighth where he missed a bunny, from 3'5". Simpson bounced back nicely at his closing hole, sticking his 155-yard approach shot to four inches for a tap-in, walkoff birdie. While Simpson has missed the cut in his last two Valspar visits, he's no stranger to success around here as he rattled off four straight top 20s before that. Mar 9 - 6:33 PM

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 56 Webb Simpson sleepwalked to a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and at 1-over 71-72-73=216, missed the scheduled 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 77 pros from a field of 156 made the 54-hole cut of even-par 215. However, with only the top 60 (and ties) advancing to Sunday's final round, 12 players were MDF and will not play in the finale: Tyler Aldridge; Robert Streb; J.T. Poston; William McGirt; Brian Gay; Sean O'Hair; Martin Laird; Steve Marino; Jim Furyk; Ryan Brehm; Rich Breberian, Jr.; Xander Schauffele. Joining Simpson among the notable MCs are: 216- Sung Kang; Chez Reavie; J.J. Spaun ... 217- Matt Kuchar; Cameron Smith ... 218- Roberto Castro; Charley Hoffman ... 219- Ryan Palmer; defender Vaughn Taylor ... 220- Grayson Murray ... 221- Dominic Bozzelli.

Playing out of the fifth-to-last threesome in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, World No. 89 Webb Simpson twirled the day's low round with a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-33=64 to match defending champ Hideki Matsuyama on 17-under 267, and then lost on the fourth hole of sudden death.

The 31-year-old was making his 215th career start (213 pro) and seventh start of the season with a previous-best T13 at the Sony. He was chasing his fifth TOUR title, first since the 2014 Shriners (as 54-hole leader), but settles for his sixth career runner-up, and drops to 1-4 in extra time. After opening 67-71-65, the Wake Forest alum began on 10-under (T12), six back of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An. He kicked off with eagle-3 at three and circled birdie-3s at 6 and 8 (from 28'8") to turn 4-under. The North Carolinian opened the back side with five straight pars before birdieing 15, 17 and 18. In the playoff, the pair matched par 4s on holes 18, 18, and 10, with Simpson having birdie tries to win on each (from between 17 and 25 feet), and then succumbed with par at the 17th to Matsuyama's birdie-3 from 10'6". Simpson's P2 is his best in seven appearances, fifth straight top 15, and fourth top 10.

World No. 89 Webb Simpson crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day tally of 10-under 203, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T12.

The 31-year-old is making his seventh appearance and has four straight top-15 finishes, including a pair of T8s in 2011 and 2012. Today's lap was his 25th at TPC Scottsdale and tied a personal low (2012/R1). After opening in 67-71, the Wake Forest alum began on 4-under (T28) and squared a lone bogey-4 at the raucous par-3 16th (3-jacking from 38'8"), but sandwiched it with birdies on 15 and 17, and five other circles, highlighted by a 30-footer for birdie-3 at 11 and a pitch-in 2 at the par-3 fourth.
Feb 4 - 4:30 PM

Webb Simpson recovered from an early hiccup to sign for a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, climbing to 9-under 131 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product got off to a rocky start after missing the green at the par-4 first hole and that resulted in a bogey. Simpson rallied from there to circle six birdies and no more bogeys. That included a three-hole birdie train from holes 7 to 9. The Achilles heal is always the flat stick but he's gained 1.901 strokes putting through two days of play. Today, he splashed home three putts in the 12-to-14 foot range. Simpson already owns three top 15s here at Waialae Country Club and he could be on his way to a fourth, especially if his putter can stay hot over the weekend.

Playing out of the final threesome, Webb Simpson patched together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba dropping three places to solo fifth on 14-under 199, four in arrears to 54-hole leader Gary Woodland.

The 31-year-old began the third frame in solo second one shy of overnight leader Woodland after kicking off his tourney debut with twin bogey-free 65s. He was heading in the right direction with birdie at the par-4 third and eagle at the par-5 fifth before eating a double bogey-7 at the seventh after trouble off the tee. The North Carolinian didn't do much from there, but did outpace bogey-5 at 16 with birdies at the par-5 13th and a walk-off 3 at the 18th. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and improved slightly to 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR.

Webb Simpson styled a second-straight clean card, posting a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to arrive at the midpoint on 12-under 130, one stroke off the clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

The Wake Forest product circled six birdies in round one and did the same today. Yesterday his score made a lot of sense as he landed 16 greens in regulation but today he only managed 10. Scrambling was the key to success today as he went 8-for-8 getting up-and-down, including a Sandy at the par-4 third hole. Despite having no course history to speak of, the 31-year-old is having a field day at El Camaleón Golf Club to find himself just one off the pace through two days of action. Simpson is searching for his first PGA TOUR win since the 2014 Shriners Hopsitals for Children Open.

Making his tournament debut Webb Simpson scattered six birdies en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round one, staking early claim of the clubhouse lead at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The OHL Classic is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week, but Simpson is getting his first look. He had no troubles getting adjusted to El Camaleón Golf Club, circling a three-hole birdie train that started at the par-4 third hole. After that, he picked up birdies at each of the remaining par 5s as well as the par-4 11th. Simpson splashed 16 greens on the day, to keep things relatively stress-free with the flat stick. The Wake Forest product is coming off a season where he found just two top 10s, his lowest tally since 2010. A big finish this week would go along way in terms of re-instilling some potentially lost confidence.

Past champion Webb Simpson returns to TPC Summerlin for his sixth appearance at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Wake Forest product missed the cut in his 2009 Shriners debut before figuring things out and recording a trio of top 5s over his next four trips, including a victory at the 2014 edition where he lapped the field by six strokes. During that win he circled 28 birdies to easily offset four bogeys, gaining 9.81 strokes putting along the way. That includes a second round 8-under 63 where he needed just 24 putts to make his way around TPC Summerlin, one-putting on all but six holes. The following year he proved his success is not reliant on the flat stick as he lost 0.08 strokes putting on the week but still finished T4 by week's end. Gamers looking for a course horse this week, should give Simpson some serious consideration.

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).

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.

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.
