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.

Webb Simpson navigated Sedgefield CC in 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the third round of the Wyndham Championship and enters the finale at 11-under 199.

Simpson's eagle from 8'6" on the par-5 fifth was longer than any of his three birdies, and he surrendered just one bogey on the afternoon. His impressive proximity is a big reason as to why he didn't gain strokes on the field with his long wand. He landed a pedestrian 12 GIR.
Aug 16 - 4:50 PM

Webb Simpson followed his opening 64 at the Wyndham Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round.

Simpson knows Sedgefield Country Club as well as anyone, but he's not immune to avoiding the likely fade after a low round. He went 4-for-6 in scrambling, but managed only three birdies, all from inside eight feet. He fanned on four tries inside 10 feet. At 7-under 133, the 2011 champ is three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 15 - 12:32 PM

Webb Simpson shot a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

The 2011 champ at Sedgefield went off the first tee this afternoon and opened with a six-yarder from just off the green at the par 4. He chased it with three more birdies to sit 4-under through four. Simpson added a round-long birdie from 21'4" at the par-3 seventh and two more on the back side before stumbling to a 5 at the par-4 17th where he whiffed on his par attempt from just inside three feet. Overall, he set up the strong day with 12 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation.

Webb Simpson returns to the site of his first PGA TOUR victory at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The North Carolina native will have plenty of support from friends and family as he navigates one of his favorite venues. Attending college just 30 miles away at Wake Forest, he is very familiar with the area, and it shows. Since his disappointing 2009 debut, he has finished 22nd or better in each of the past four editions, including his 2011 victory. While his form has stuttered as of late, gamers should have no fear trotting Simpson out this week, in any format.

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.
Jul 6 - 2:33 PM

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.
Jul 1 - 2:27 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 2:04 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 8:53 AM

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.
May 1 - 6:22 PM

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.
Apr 29 - 9:35 PM

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.
