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.
Apr 6 - 8:12 PM

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.

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.
Feb 17 - 9:10 PM

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.

Overnight co-leader Webb Simpson responded to his opening 62 at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round to post 12-under 128 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Matt Kuchar and Justin Thomas.

Simpson squeezed as much out of this round that he could. Consider that he hit only 10 greens in regulation and squared only one bogey. That occurred at the par-4 fifth hole. He'd go on to bury five birdies, the longest stretching 20'11" at the par-4 15th hole. When Simpson's score was official, he led the field with 14 birdies through two rounds and ranked third in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate measurement north of 5.170. Since he and Kuchar sit at the top of the leaderboard, they'll be paired together again in Saturday's third round.
Jan 16 - 10:12 PM

Webb Simpson shredded Waialae Country Club for nine birdies en route to an 8-under-par 34-28=62 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, good for a share of the overnight lead with Paul Casey.

We don't see many 28s on any nine all year. In fact, Simpson's inward aggregate today is the season low on the PGA TOUR. He converted seven of his birdies coming in, five of which from outside 12 feet. The longest dropped in from 23 feet at the par-4 first. Overall, he hit 13 greens in regulation and squared only one bogey, a 5 at the 12th hole. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained-putting with a clip of 4.695. "Today was a big day for me," he said after signing for the 62, which is his lowest aggregate in 169 starts on the PGA TOUR. "It was one of my best putting rounds I've ever had to be honest."

Webb Simpson will have a sixth look at Waialae Country Club at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Wake Forest product is a perfect 5-for-5 at the venue with two top 20s, to boot. Simpson is cruising along this season with seven of eight round in the 60s. On the flip side, his latest international start at the Dunlop Phoenix can be classified as a disappointment after he walked away with a T55 finish. The consistent high finishes haven't been there for Simpson lately, but the four-time PGA TOUR winner is always worth a look on short par 70 courses.
Jan 14 - 10:00 AM

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.

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.
