Webb Simpson returns to the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational for his second peek at Firestone Country Club's South Course.
Simpson made quite the first impression with Firestone CC, posting a 64 to grab the first-round lead in his introduction. The Wake Forest product couldn't replicate his success over the next two days, but did finish with a strong 66 on Sunday to get back inside the top 15. Simpson always enjoys playing on par 70 courses, as he's shown with seven top 15s in his last 10 tournaments played on such courses. Jul 30 - 9:33 AM

Webb Simpson lit up The Old White TPC for a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post the clubhouse lead at 10-under 270.

The Wake Forest product and former U.S. Open winner circled seven birdies and amassed 11 pars on his Sunday stroll. Four of those birdies fell from between 11 and 17 feet, so the long wand was working from mid-range. It wasn't just the putter that propped him up, though he did gain over three strokes with the flat stick, as he split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR. Simpson entered the round tied for 43rd and was an afterthought, but there were only two players ahead of him on the golf course at the time of his posting.

Webb Simpson has flirted with success at The Greenbrier Classic and is back for another shot in this week's edition.

After a rough introduction in 2010, Simpson has grown to like The Old White TPC. In 2011, he shared a piece of the 36-hole lead before fading to a T9 finish. He took it a step further in 2012, owning the outright 36 and 54-hole leads before a Sunday 73 dropped him to a share of 7th place. Signing for 66 or better in five of his last 12 rounds shows his propensity to go low on this easy track, and makes Simpson a very strong option for gamers across all formats.

Webb Simpson closed out his week at TPC Southwind with a final-round 4-under-par 34-32=66 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and is the early clubhouse leader at 8-under 272.

Simpson picked up six birdies in his final round, three falling from outside of 10 feet including a 30'6" bomb on the par-4 ninth, and he handed back a pair of bogeys. He was stuck in neutral until late in his round when he rattled off three consecutive birdies beginning with the par-4 15th. It remains to be seen if enough carnage will unfold behind him to render him a winner, but what seems certain is that he will score his first top-10 finish since February and enter the U.S. Open with some much needed momentum.

Webb Simpson continued his march up the FedEx St. Jude Classic leaderboard with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round.

Simpson was one of the first to post a score in the third round, returning to TPC Southwind to complete three holes on Sunday morning. After trading a birdie and a bogey on the front nine, he added three birdies to just two bogeys on the back. His 20'10" birdie effort on the par-4 12th was easily the highlight. The North Carolina resident's best start since his T9 at the WGC-Accenture Match Play back in February was a T38 at the Wells Fargo Championship. At 4-under 206 and safely inside the top 20 with 18 holes to play, perhaps he's rounding into form just in time for the U.S. Open in his home state later this week.

Webb Simpson makes his fourth start at the FedEx St. Jude Classic after a three-year absence.

This has all the makings of an emergency prep session for next week's U.S. Open. His history here is nothing special, making two of three cuts but posting nothing better than a T29. Simpson hasn't finished inside the top 35 in a stroke-play event since his 10th-place finish at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, explaining why some live bullets could be helpful.

Webb Simpson alerted his followers on Twitter today that his wife, Dowd, delivered the couple's third child on Monday night.

Webb tweeted: "We welcomed Wyndham Rose Simpson to our family last night at 9:53. She is beautiful and wonderful. Momma is doing great." While it's great news for the family, it's good news for us, too. We no longer need to concern ourselves with when the 2012 U.S. Open champion may split mid-tournament. Then again, you could argue that he checked out weeks ago. Since the PGA TOUR migrated east in March, he's just 3-for-6 with no top 35s.
May 13 - 1:35 PM

Webb Simpson fashioned a 4-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Simpson's local knowledge paid off today. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but limited the damage to a double-bogey 6 at the ninth hole and a bogey at the par-4 18th. Meanwhile, he picked off seven birdies, including a five-yarder from just off the green at 10 and a conventional conversion from 11'10" at 16. It's hyperbole at the moment, but he may prove that today and the week to be the pick-me-up he's lacked in three months without a top 45 in stroke-play competition.

Webb Simpson is a member at Quail Hollow Club and hopes to enjoy the favorable bounces at the Wells Fargo Championship later this week.

Simpson nearly won the 2012 edition, eventually finishing fourth after blowing the 54-hole lead. While course history isn't a question, his current form is. Though he's 11th in the FedExCup standings, he has missed two of his last three cuts. His only respite was a T61 at the Shell Houston Open.

Webb Simpson spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Simpson has been hiding since taking 10th place at the WM Phoenix Open two months ago. Since concluding that effort with a 66, he had failed to break 70 in 10 rounds before today. He went 3-for-3 in scrambling and converted four birdies, including rolls of 12'11" and 22'2" at the 14th and second holes, respectively.
Apr 3 - 5:02 PM

Webb Simpson completed 36 holes of the Valspar Championship in 5-over-par 72-75=147 and will miss the cut.

This is a surprise, especially since he hadn't fared worse than T17 (2013) in any of the previous four editions. This week, Simpson split 14 (of 26) fairways and hit 25 greens in regulation, but managed only six birdies and swallowed six bogeys and two doubles. He whiffed on eight tries inside seven feet. The short week extinguishes his consecutive cuts made streak at 19.
Mar 14 - 2:18 PM

Webb Simpson spun a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

While a 2-under 70 doesn't sound all that significant from a player going off early and out of the hunt, it offers a glimpse that Doral won't play quite as hard as it did in the brutal second round. To put it in perspective, a 70 in the second round was the lowest of the day. Simpson circled four birdies and squared two bogeys on his round. By his lofty standards, he still won't be pleased to enter the final round at 12-over 228.
Mar 8 - 12:35 PM

Webb Simpson dominated Brandt Snedeker in the Jones Bracket in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, winning 4 and 3.

Simpson scored 5-under-par with six birdies against one bogey. He won sixes holes, five of which with birdies, the other with a concession (at No. 3). He opened a 4-up lead by the sixth hole before Sneds found a little groove and picked off wins at the par-5 eighth with a birdie and the par-4 10th with par. However, Simpson was simply locked in more. He's yet to see the 17th hole this week. Tomorrow's opponent is Louis Oosthuizen.
Feb 20 - 5:42 PM

Webb Simpson made easy work of Thongchai Jaidee in the Jones Bracket of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship with a 3-and-2 victory.

Jaidee set an early tone with birdie-wins at 2 and 4, but Simpson rattled off five unanswered wins of his own at Nos. 5, 7 9, 10 and 13. The American completed 16 holes in bogey-free 3-under-par, but won three of his holes with pars. Jaidee played his last 12 holes in 3-over with four bogeys. Simpson will grapple with Brandt Snedeker in the second round.
Feb 19 - 5:05 PM

Webb Simpson closed out his week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 and is the first in the clubhouse at 11-under 273.

Simpson's round was without a blemish, featuring five birdies and 13 pars. He was clicking on all cylinders, splitting 11 of 14 fairways, landing 14 GIR and gaining just over two strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting. With a number of players still on the course, it's possible that this will go for his fourth top 10 of 2013-14.
