Webb Simpson back-pedaled to an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 14-under 274 total, good for a two-way tie for second with Patrick Rodgers.
The duo landed a distant seven strokes adrift of champion Rory McIlroy. Simpson, who plays out of Quail Hollow, began the day in solo second and four shots back of McIlroy. The club member would have had to get off to a solid start to have any hope of chasing down the Northern Irishman. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident missed five of his first six greens in regulation and would save par on just three, squaring bogeys on the opener, the par-3 third and inexplicably squaring a double bogey-5 on No. 6, where he three-putted from 51 inches. On the round, the 29-year-old piped 10 (of 14) fairways but hit just 10 GIR. On the bright side, his T2 is a season-best finish on TOUR as well as a career-best in seven starts in the tournament.

Overnight co-leader Webb Simpson scrambled his way to a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 14-under 202.

Simpson began the day tied with Robert Streb and sharing a two-stroke advantage. Despite a fine effort in circling three birdies and one eagle against a lone bogey, he now sits in solo second and four shots back of the 54-hole leader Rory McIlory, who stormed past him with an 11-under 61. Simpson did not have his best day with ball-striking finding just seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. He kept his round intact however by going 7-for-8 in scrambles, including par putts of 13' on No. 2 and 15'2" on No. 4. He'll rue his short miss of 3'2" for birdie on the 11th and three-putt par on 14, but highlighted his round with eagle-3 from 21'4" on the 15th.

Webb Simpson fashioned another 5-under-par 67 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship and posted 10-under 134 at the break, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This is Simpson's home course, so you'd expect him to know where to miss and the nuance of the greens, but he's gone ahead and executed wonderfully this week. After circling six birdies in the opener, he added seven today, including a hole-out from the rough 19 yards away at the par-4 ninth and another hole-out, this time from a tight lie 22 yards away at the par-3 17th. Simpson's longest conventional conversion ran 15'3", dropping for par at the par-4 16th. At last check, he led the field in birdies (!3), fairways hit (23 of 28) and strokes gained: tee-to-green (9.073 through 36 holes).

Webb Simpson twirled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

He didn't hold the overall lead when he signed his card, but the Quail Hollow member showcased taut form to lay the foundation for a lucrative week. Simpson hit 13 greens and covered a lone bogey at the par-4 16th hole with six birdies. The set feature three from outside 12 feet, the longest stretching 21'4" at the par-4 14th hole. At last check, he sat inside the top five in both strokes-gained stats. We have no reason to believe that he can't keep this form going. However, he's picked off only one top 20 in six previous trips (solo fourth, 2012), so it's not like he'll be able to sleepwalk into contention.
May 14 - 12:44 PM

Webb Simpson posted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Simpson is a relatively uncommon moving target among the elite. Stick with him long enough and he'll keep you smiling, but you'll often wonder why you stick with him. Today was nice, though. He missed only one of the 14 fairways and four greens in regulation. He rolled in four birdies including a four-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 10th. His only bogey occurred on the par-5 11th. At last check, Simpson led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 5.424.
May 7 - 12:59 PM

Webb Simpson eked out victory in 19 holes over Jimmy Walker in today's second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

Neither Yankee had it going early at TPC Harding Park today. They combined for five bogeys and zero par breakers through 11 holes. Simpsons finally ended the drought with a birdie to square the match at the par-4 12th. Walker retook the lead with a birdie-3 at 15. It stood that way until the par-5 18th. Simpson then buried a 33-footer for eagle to extend the match. He wasted no time in putting Walker down with a birdie-4 at the par-5 first during their second time through. Not only was it Simpson's only lead of the day, but it also extinguished Walker's hopes of advancing. He's 0-2 with Ian Poulter (0-2) on tap for Friday's third round. That should be fun. Simpson will play to advance against Gary Woodland (2-0).
Apr 30 - 8:13 PM

Webb Simpson will make his fourth consecutive World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship start this week and sports a 5-3 record at this event.

After a first-round exit in his Cadillac Match Play debut in 2012, Simpson reached the quarter-finals in 2013 before getting trounced 5 and 4 to Louis Oosthuizen in a round-three KO last year. The 29-year-old holds four PGA TOUR titles, including the 2012 U.S. Open held at nearby Olympic Club, also in San Francisco. Simpson's opponents in Group 11 are Ian Poulter (who he's faced in singles in the last two Ryder Cups, going 0-1-1), Jimmy Walker and Gary Woodland.

Webb Simpson hung up a 3-under-par 33-36=69 for his opening round of the 79th Masters.

If you're a fan and/or an owner of his, you'd argue that he was due for something good to happen at Augusta National Golf Club. Well, it's happened. He hit a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole with four birdies, three of which on the par 5s. Simpson totaled 12 greens in regulation. It's his lowest score in nine rounds of competition in the tournament. He's only two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Apr 9 - 3:39 PM

Webb Simpson is making his fourth career visit to the Augusta National Golf Club.

Simpson, the 2012 U.S. Open champion, is 1-for-3 at the Masters. His T44 in his debut in 2012 has been the highlight with subsequent missed cuts in 2013 and 2014. His 2-under-par 70 in the third round of the 2012 Masters is his only sub-par round (of eight) to date. On the season, he's made six of seven cuts with a pair of T7s at the Humana Challenge and the WGC-Cadillac, and a T4 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. If there ever was a year, statistically speaking, that Simpson is going to add to his major championship trophy case, this is that year. He enters the Masters ranking in the top 10 in a majority of vital categories including sixth in birdie-to-bogey ratio, eighth in bogey avoidance and seventh in scoring average. He also ranks 10th in scrambling and second in the all-around. Alas, gamers considering him will struggle to get past his 149th in strokes gained: putting and poor course form.

Webb Simpson has submitted a pair of 3-under-par 35-34=69s to open the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He's done it in different ways, but all that matters is the score. Simpson buried an eagle and five birdies against four bogeys on Thursday. Today's loop was a bit more traditional in that he squared but one bogey while burying four birdies. Two of today's set of par breakers ran 13-19 feet. He's missed only four (of 28) fairways and eight greens in regulation thus far and sits seven strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Mar 20 - 6:12 PM

Webb Simpson settled for a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and is safely inside the top 10 at 2-under 286.

Simpson's lap around Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course featured three birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey. Highlights included a 16'9" birdie on the par-5 eighth and a 21'3" roll on the par-4 14th. Given that this course has proven to be a bombers paradise, especially this week, Simpson will likely depart feeling rather satisfied with his top-10 finish.
Mar 8 - 6:10 PM

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

Simpson enters the final round at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course inside the top 10 at 3-under 213. His third round featured five birdies to just three bogeys, with all of the birdies dropping from inside of 11 feet. He managed to gain over a stroke both tee-to-green and with the flat stick. He has gone about his business in anonymity this week, but a low final round will change that quickly.
Mar 7 - 5:06 PM

Webb Simpson continues his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Northern Trust Open.

Simpson is checking many of the required boxes for investment at Riviera Country Club. He has made each of his three cuts in this event, including a T15 in 2010 and a T6 in 2013. Though he has been on a three-week sabbatical, he posted a T7 in his last start at the Humana Challenge.

Webb Simpson bombarded Palmer Private at PGA West to the tune of a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64, grabbing the temporary clubhouse lead at 20-under 268.

Simpson's final navigation of the week was a highlight reel of long-range conversions. His longest came on the the par-3 fifth hole as he missed the green but holed out from 10 yards anyway. In addition, Simpson rolled in nine more from outside five feet. The Wake Forest alum who entered the week with a lot of attention on his switch back to a short putter walked off the course with +3.751 strokes gained:putting. Simpson is the first to post a number in the 20s but will likely get lapped as the conditions are ripe for scoring today.
Jan 25 - 5:30 PM

Webb Simpson swallowed a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Sony Open and dropped into a tie for eighth at 10-under 200.

That's a pretty poor effort for a 36-hole co-leader. His lone birdie from 2'5" at the par-5 ninth did little to erase his three bogeys at Waialae Country Club. To be fair, this is his first taste of contention after switching from a long to a short putter, so some glitches are to be expected. This should be a nice learning experience for Simpson has he deals with the pressures of contention while employing a new putter.
