Webb Simpson soared the up the leaderboard early in round two of the TOUR Championship and then held on late to post a 3-under-par 31-36=67, good for a share of the 36-hole lead alongside Justin Thomas and Paul Casey, all entering the weekend on 7-under 133. UPDATE: This is Simpson's 10th 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 1-for-9 converting (2014 Shriners).

Simpson was locked in from the start today, picking up four birdies in his first seven holes, including one at the difficult par-4 opening hole. We knew it was his day when an errant tee shot bounced off the top of an out-of-bounds fence and ricocheted back into prime position to attack the green. However, it all went downhill at the par-4 13th, as he blasted one into the trees off the tee and failed to get his (attempted) chip out back to the fairway. It resulted in a double bogey but also had lasting effects on his final five holes, missing the fairway on three of his final four drives. On the bright side, Simpson sits at first in the field this week in terms of strokes gained approaching-the-green. He will be happy to end today's round and hit the reset button before he readies for the weekend.

Webb Simpson styled a 4-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the TOUR Championship, placing him just two strokes off the early pace set by Kyle Stanley.

The Wake Forest product was steady tee-to-green during his opening round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. The highlight came early at the par-5 sixth where he stuck his 232-yard approach to 7'2" and splashed it home for an eagle. Simpson would miss a pair of birdie chances from the 9-to-10 foot range but then made up for that with a par-saver from just outside 11 feet at the 16th. The 32-year-old is making his fifth appearance at East Lake and already owns a pair of top 5s on his resume. Simpson clearly likes the demanding layout, making him a very strong contender to hoist the trophy by week's end.

World No. 41 Webb Simpson signed for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 after the final round of the BMW Championship to finish up on 12-under 272, up six places to T9 with play still in progress.

The 32-year-old entered the week 21st in the FedExCup standings and is projected to bump to 16th, heading to the TOUR Championship for the fifth time, first since 2014. After opening in 66-73-65 he began T15 on 9-under, two short of the overnight top 10. The Wake Forest alum found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.603 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.062 around-the-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 5 and 16, outpaced by five circles at 7, 10, 11, 13 and 14, registering 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.417 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 6.915.

Webb Simpson torched Conway Farms Golf Club in round one of the BMW Championship, walking away with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 to his name.

Simpson started the week safely inside the TOUR Championship bubble (ranked 21st in the FedExCup standings). He used his noted short-game skills to rise up the leaderboard today. On the day he gained 1.112 strokes around-the-green, helping to keep his putts to a reasonable distance. Simpson finished T24 in his 2013 debut at Conway Farms but returned to post a T64 in 2015. Slow to make the anchored-putter adjustment, Simpson has found a putting method that works for him and he's now set to return to the TOUR Championship for the first time in three years (fifth time overall).

World No. 49 Webb Simpson fashioned a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to finish up on 5-under 275, up 29 places on the live leaderboard to T5 and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Charley Hoffman. UPDATE: With play completed, Simpson finished T6 and his 65 was tied for the low round of the day with two others.

The 32-year-old, who arrived off solo 3rd at the Wyndham, records a fourth top 25 in nine appearances and should be a third top 10. His best finish thus far is solo 8th on debut in 2009 (Liberty National GC). It was the Wake Forest Alum's 27th overall Playoffs event, winning one time, the 2011 Deutsche Bank at TPC Boston in a playoff. After kicking off 73-66-71, he began T34, four shy of the overnight top 10. The North Carolinian striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.976 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.399 around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 6.975. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 5, camouflaged by six circles at 2 (27-footer from the fringe), 4 (29'10"), 7 (13-footer from the fringe), 9, 12 and 13. Simpson, projecting at 15th in the FedExCup standings, posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.388 SG: Putting, needing 27 total putts.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 59 Webb Simpson pieced together a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude on 18-under 262, down one place to solo 3rd, four adrift of 54-hole leader and champion Henrik Stenson, who shot 64.

The 32-year-old bags his seventh top 25 in nine appearances, fifth top 10 and third top 5, highlighted by his win in 2011. It's his ninth top 25 of the season in 24 starts, fourth top 10 and third top 5, and climbs 12 spots to 25th in the FEC standings. After kicking off in 63-64, the Wake Forest alum co-led with Ryan Armour, his ninth career 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career events, and drops to 1-for-9 converting. He tacked on a 68 in R3 to drop into a three-way T2, one back of Stenson. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he was sleepwalking on 1-over thru 12 holes, outpacing birdie-4 at No. 5 with bogey-5s at 4 and 10, but awoke to circle four of his final six, including a walk-off 3 from 7'2" to secure solo 3rd. Simpson hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 GIR, losing 0.385 strokes around-the-green and gaining 0.584 on-the-green.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 59 Webb Simpson backed up with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship, down one place into a three-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson.

After kicking off in 63-64, the Wake Forest alum co-led with Ryan Armour. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.286 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.239 approaching-the-green. The North Carolinian was bogey-free 3-under thru 16 holes, circling Nos. 2 (from 15'4"), 13 (17'8") and 15, before retreating one with bogey-5 at 17 (failed scramble). He recorded a commercial 1.867 putts per GIR and -0.030 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts. The 32-year-old, winner here in 2011, will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.

Past champ and World No. 59 Webb Simpson twirled a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 13-under 127, up two spots to T1, matching the 36-hole lead of Ryan Armour.

Play is still in progress but no one is going to catch the leaders. This will be Simpson's second 36-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 24 starts. He was a 36-hole co-leader seven starts ago at the DEAN & DELUCA (68-66), eventually finishing solo 5th with 67-71. The 32-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.397 SG: Off-the-Tee though -0.431 around-the-green. He squared back-to-back bogey-5s at Nos. 8 and 9 (failed scrambles), camouflaged by eight circles at 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 14 and 15. The North Carolinian's split featured three from between 12 and 20 feet, recording 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.925 SG: Putting. Overall, this is his ninth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career starts, previously 1-for-8 converting (2013 Shriners).

Webb Simpson styled a 7-under-par 35-28=63 during the opening round of the Wyndham Championship, giving him an early spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

The past champ (2011) opened his week on the back nine and setup seven scoring chances from inside nine feet on his outward nine. He missed a pair of birdie chances from inside six feet but it's hard to complain with five birdies and an eagle on the opening nine holes. The rain-soaked course was providing golfers target practice today and the Wake Forest produce took full advantage. Simpson would slow his pace on the homeward nine but this is still a great opening effort. Playing at the site of his first TOUR win and the event in which he named his third child after, Simpson is squarely in his comfort zone as he attempts to pick up his sixth top 15 at Sedgefield Country Club.

Wake Forest alum Webb Simpson takes his talents back home to Greensboro, North Carolina, for a ninth appearance at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Charlotte resident used to come to this event as a teenager and played his college golf at nearby Wake Forest. The event already meant a lot to him for those two reasons but it got elevated to another level when he made Sedgefield Country Club the site of his first win (2011 Wyndham Championship). The tournament means so much to him that he named his third child after the event. Since the win he's rattled off four top 25s in five return trips. More recently, Simpson has collected five straight top 40s to move into the 37th slot in the FedExCup standings. A good mix of course history and current form makes Simpson a strong play in all fantasy formats.

Webb Simpson will have the benefit of home-cooked meals this week as he preps for the 99th PGA Championship, hosted at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Wake Forest product seemingly has home courses all over the South and this is one of them. Simpson is a member at Quail Hollow Club, giving him a nice leg up to start the week, as no one will be more familiar with the course changes than Simpson. The local knowledge has led to a pair of top 10s at the Wells Fargo Championship, but he also missed the cut during the 2016 edition. Simpson is a major championship winner (2012 U.S. Open) but he's found just one top 20 in majors in 20 starts since the birdman interrupted his trophy presentation at Olympic Club. Given his ties to the course, this week does present a good opportunity for him to jump back into contention in a major championship.

Webb Simpson is rounding into form ahead of his appearance at Royal Birkdale for this week's Open Championship.

Simpson arrives with finishes of T8 and T14 in his latest two starts. It hasn't been wire-to-wire contention in those events, however. In both starts (Travelers and Greenbrier) he's been outside the top 30 at the midpoint before rallying over the weekend. That is certainly a route to a success, although previous Open Championship winners have gotten off to a quick start. In five previous attempts, Simpson if 4-for-5 at The Open with a T16 in 2011 being the highlight. Other than his 2012 U.S. Open win, Simpson has failed to record a top 10 in a major championship. Gamers should keep that in mind when setting their expectations for the Wake Forest product.

World No. 62 Webb Simpson signed for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 after the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish up on 8-under 272, up two places to T8, two back of 72-hole co-clubhouse leaders Charley Hoffman and Danny Lee.

After kicking off in 70-68-66, the 31-year-old began T10 on 6-under, six adrift of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.514 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.256 tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum squared a lone bogey-4 at eight (failed sand save), currently T1 for the week with just four. He circled three birdies at Nos. 6, 13 and 15, each from 36 inches or less and two of those 2-putt versions. The North Carolinian posted a pedestrian 1.900 putt per GIR though 1.358 SG: Putting, buoyed by four par-savers from between six and 12 feet. This is his third top 25 at the Travelers in eight visits and second top 10 (T5/2013), and seventh top 25 of the season in 20 starts and third top 10.
