World No. 44 Webb Simpson crafted a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to finish on 15-under 265, up five spots to T4, with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Simpson finished a season-best T4, two shots short of a two-man playoff involving James Hahn and Patton Kizzire.
This was the 32-year-old's ninth appearance, sixth top 25, fifth straight, and second top 10, bettering a T9 on debut in 2009. It's his third top 20 of the season in four starts and first top 10. After kicking off in 67-70-63, the Wake Forest alum began T9 on 10-under, six short of 54-hole leader Tom Hoge. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.060 strokes off-the-tee and 1.219 tee-to-green. The North Carolinian squared three bogeys at holes 2, 6 and 17, smothered by eight birdies at 3, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16 and 18, two from between 10 and 28 feet. He posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 1.932 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. Jan 14 - 9:06 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 44 Webb Simpson tossed up a 7-under-par 30-33=63 on Moving Day at the Sony Open in Hawaii to reach 10-under 200, up 39 spots on the live leaderboard to T9, good for the low round of the day and tying the low round of the week with three others.

The 32-year-old found six (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.233 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.004 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 16, smothered by six circles at 10, 12, 18, 2, 3, 7, walking off with a pitch-in eagle-3 at 9 from 25'8" away. His split included two conversions from between 12 and 35 feet, posting 1.462 putts per GIR and 2.178 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. This is the Wake Forest alum's ninth Sony, is now 9-for-9 and has five prior top 20s, including the last four consecutive.

Webb Simpson returns to a favorable Waialae Country Club venue ahead of this week's Sony Open in Hawaii. UPDATE: Simpson opened with rounds of 67-70=137 (-3) to earn a weekend tee time at Waialae CC. There appear to be no lingering effects from his RSM Classic WD.

Simpson was last seen at The RSM Classic where he was forced to withdraw after the second round, to be with his ailing father. It was a good reminder for gamers that all these professional golfers are real people who deal with off-the-course issues while maintaining a TOUR schedule. Prior to his WD at the RSM, Simpson had rattled off top 20s in six of his last seven starts. He's also on the record saying he loves the layout at Waialae Country Club. A bit of rust can't be ruled out after the holiday break, but everything else points to a strong week for Simpson.

World No. 42 Webb Simpson, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, withdrew prior to the third round of The RSM Classic. UPDATE: From his Twitter account, Simpson posted, "I WD due to my Dad being sick and living his last days. Thanks for all the support."

The Wake Forest alum, a playoff loser here in 2011, was scheduled to go off No. 1 tee at 10:45 am ET with Bubba Watson and Jim Herman. After opening his sixth appearance in 67-68, he was T12 on 7-under 135, seven short of 36-hole leader Austin Cook. This is the 32-year-old's second mid-tourney WD in his 239th career event, first since the 2009 Children's Miracle Network Classic during his rookie season. At press time, no reason has been published as to the reason for the WD.

Facing off with Sea Island Golf Club's Plantation Course, Webb Simpson started his week at The RSM Classic with a 5-under-par 35-32=67, good for a share of eighth place as play concludes on Thursday.

Arriving on the heels of four straight top 20s, Simpson was certainly popular among gamers this week. At 42nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, only four golfers entered with a higher rank. He's living up to those expectations through round one, despite taking 29 swipes with the putter. That included a three-jack at the par-4 fifth hole. Simpson took advantage of the scoring holes, though, as he recorded a score of 5-under on the par 5s alone (four of them). That included an eagle at the par-5 18th. On top of his strong recent play, the Wake Forest product also owns three top-15 finishes here at Sea Island.

Overnight tri-leader and World No. 41 Webb Simpson labored to a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the TOUR Championship, dropping eight spots to T9 on 5-under 205, seven in arrears of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

After kicking off in 66-67, the 32-year-old co-led with Justin Thomas and Casey. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he hit seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.944 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 0.570 approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in SG: Approach with a cumulative 5.973. The Wake Forest alum mustered two birdies at holes 2 and 18, outbalanced by four bogeys at 6 and 14-16, all failed scrambles. He recorded a commercial 1.818 putts per GIR and -2.317, needing 31 total putts.

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.

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.

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).
