Webb Simpson kicked off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season with a tie for fourth at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open before following that up with a T41 at The McGladrey Classic.
The overwhelming trend for Simpson is that he is developing into a course horse. That is, he plays very well on tracks where he has established a strong history but can be very average or worse on layouts where his success is minimal. He still nets enough high finishes to warrant a confident investment in season-long formats. It should be fairly easy to get a read on when to plug him in for weekly games throughout the season. The toughest call with the Wake Forest product is trusting that he will perform on friendly confines when his current form is wavering. Nov 26 - 8:34 AM

Webb Simpson fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing two strokes adrift of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Simpson's record at Seaside is missing only a victory. He's placed T12 (2010), P2 (2011) and T7 (2014). Today's score is his 12th in 13 rounds. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation en route to six birdies. Three of them ranged outside 10 feet, including conversions from 17'11" and 34 feet at the 17th and second holes, respectively. Simpson also bogeyed the par-3 12th and doubled the par-4 14th, but none of the leaders were bogey-free, either. He also rolled in a par save from 10'2" at the par-3 third.

Webb Simpson heated up late in his final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and ends his title defense with a 3-under-par 35-33=68.

Simpson is the clubhouse leader at 15-under 269. He was 1-over, with two bogeys and a birdie over his first 12 holes. Never phased, he concluded his lap around TPC Summerlin with three birdies and a 35'3" eagle on the par-5 16th to go with a par and a closing bogey. With Kevin Streelman and Ben Martin both on the course at a lower number, it is unlikely that Simpson will hoist the trophy. It was a solid defense as he continues to own the reputation as a course horse.

Webb Simpson managed a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Shriners Hosptials for Children Open and is inside the top five at 12-under 201.

The defending champion traded two birdies for two bogeys on the front nine at TPC Summerlin. He heated up on the back, bagging four birdies including a 16'7" effort from just off the green on the par-5 13th. His 11 (of 14) fairways were the best of his three rounds this week, but his 13 GIR were the worst. He gained well over a stroke with the flat stick. It will take a hot round for him to catch Ben Martin on Sunday, as Simpson trails by five strokes.

Webb Simpson chased his opening 69 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round to post 8-under 134 and sit one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It was in this round a year ago that Simpson shot 63 to hit 15-under at the midpoint. He didn't look back and ran away with a six-stroke victory. Contrast that against today's positioning and scoring is measurably higher at TPC Summerlin this time around. Simpson missed only one green in regulation today and poured in six birdies, including conversions from 20'3" and 18'7" at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.
Oct 17 - 3:34 PM

Webb Simpson opened his title defense of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 2-under-par 35-34=69.

Simpson stumbled out of the blocks at TPC Summerlin today, three-putting the green at the par-4 first hole from just inside 34 feet for bogey. He'd go on to find four birdies to offset one more bogey. His longest par breaker measured 14'9" at the par-4 10th hole, but he also jarred a par save from 12'5" at 11. Simpson signed his card sitting five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Webb Simpson kicked off his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is back to defend.

Simpson enters this week off the recent disappointment of being a member of the losing U.S. Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles. Perhaps that shouldn't be a big concern to gamers. He has a growing reputation for playing well on courses where his history is strong. Considering that he tied for fourth at TPC Summerlin in 2010, which was his last start before his 2014 win, gamers should invest with some degree of confidence.

Webb Simpson will look to make the most of his Captain's pick this week at the 40th Ryder Cup.

Simpson is back for his second consecutive Ryder Cup event. In 2012, he paired with Bubba Watson to earn a 2-1-0 record before losing his singles match to Ian Poulter. While his 2013-14 season was a little quiet, four podium finishes including a victory is nothing to sneeze at. Simpson may be toward the end of the line when it comes to Tom Watson shelling him out for a tee time, but that could easily change if he performs well in his first match.
Sep 24 - 8:45 AM

Webb Simpson has lacked consistency at times in 2013-14, but hopes a strong history at the TOUR Championship proves to the be the difference this week.

Simpson's last two starts at East Lake Golf Club have resulted in a tie for fifth and a solo fourth each of the last two years. While the 22nd ranked player in the FedExCup standings has missed three of his last eight cuts, he's also recorded two top-five finishes and a third top 10 in that span. His successes have been somewhat predictable, coming on tracks where he's experienced success.

Webb Simpson has joined the U.S. Ryder Cup team as a captain's pick.

Simpson won in his first start of the season at the Shriners and has totaled nine top 10s, including a T9 yesterday at TPC Boston. but his form has alternated between terrific and terrible. He went 2-2-0 in his Ryder Cup debut in 2012 with a pair of 5-for-4 wins while paired with Bubba Watson. And therein lies his value. Expect to see the two God-fearing touring pros pair together again. Simpson concluded the automatic qualifying stage at 15th in points. The 24-man field for the every-other-year competition is now complete. The Ryder Cup is scheduled to be contested at Gleneagles on Sept. 26-28.
Sep 2 - 7:32 PM

Webb Simpson turned in an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to share ninth at 9-under 275.

Simpson was trying to make one last impression on Tom Watson ahead of the announcement of Ryder Cup captain's picks on Tuesday, but he was unable to mount a charge. His two birdies both occurred from inside four feet and each were erased by a pair of bogeys. He will now keep his cell phone charged and hope for the best.

Webb Simpson conjured up a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the final round safely inside the top 10 at 9-under 204.

Simpson has everything on the line this weekend, as he is trying to perform well enough to convince Tom Watson to burn one of his three Ryder Cup captain's picks on him at the conclusion of the tournament. The Wake Forest product circled five birdies but gave back on double bogey on his lap around TPC Boston. Highlights included birdies from 14'8" on the par-5 seventh and 23 feet on the par-4 13th.
Aug 31 - 5:07 PM

Webb Simpson signed for a 1-under-par 36-34=70 following his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The aggregate appears much as how a duck look above the surface of the pond. Below it, Simpson grinded all day long. He triple-bogeyed the par-4 14th and squared three bogeys, only to claw all the way back and then some with seven birdies, including a pair to walk off at Nos. 8 and 9. His longest par breaker measured 19'8" at the par-4 first hole. At 6-under 136, he's just two strokes back of the twosome atop the leaderboard after 36 holes.
Aug 30 - 7:23 PM

Webb Simpson posted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing one strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Like clubhouse leader Keegan Bradley, Simpson is chasing a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup. He came out firing with a birdie from 13'1" at the par-4 first hole. He bogeyed the par-5 second where he failed to get up and down from the fringe, but he played his final 16 holes in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. The set featured rolls of 25'6" and 33'9" at Nos. 14 and 16, respectively. Simpsons won this tournament in 2011, so there's very much a comfort zone out there for him.
Aug 29 - 2:25 PM

Webb Simpson surged for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to nab a top-10 finish at 14-under 266.

The Wake Forest product erased a couple of early birdies with a double bogey at the par-4 11th when he needed four putts to get the ball in the cup after hitting the GIR. When it seemed like he was fading into oblivion, he stood tall with three birdies on his final four holes, including a 19'1" effort on the par-4 18th. His 12-footer on the par-4 fourth was the other noteworthy highlight. He is slated to move from 18th to 13th in the FedExCup standings just in time for the Playoffs, and should be worthy of consideration for a captain's selection in the upcoming Ryder Cup should he continue his fine form.
