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.

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.

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.

Webb Simpson chased his opening 69 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round to post 8-under 134 and sit one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It was in this round a year ago that Simpson shot 63 to hit 15-under at the midpoint. He didn't look back and ran away with a six-stroke victory. Contrast that against today's positioning and scoring is measurably higher at TPC Summerlin this time around. Simpson missed only one green in regulation today and poured in six birdies, including conversions from 20'3" and 18'7" at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Webb Simpson opened his title defense of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 2-under-par 35-34=69.

Simpson stumbled out of the blocks at TPC Summerlin today, three-putting the green at the par-4 first hole from just inside 34 feet for bogey. He'd go on to find four birdies to offset one more bogey. His longest par breaker measured 14'9" at the par-4 10th hole, but he also jarred a par save from 12'5" at 11. Simpson signed his card sitting five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Webb Simpson kicked off his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season with a win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is back to defend.

Simpson enters this week off the recent disappointment of being a member of the losing U.S. Ryder Cup team at Gleneagles. Perhaps that shouldn't be a big concern to gamers. He has a growing reputation for playing well on courses where his history is strong. Considering that he tied for fourth at TPC Summerlin in 2010, which was his last start before his 2014 win, gamers should invest with some degree of confidence.

Webb Simpson will look to make the most of his Captain's pick this week at the 40th Ryder Cup.

Simpson is back for his second consecutive Ryder Cup event. In 2012, he paired with Bubba Watson to earn a 2-1-0 record before losing his singles match to Ian Poulter. While his 2013-14 season was a little quiet, four podium finishes including a victory is nothing to sneeze at. Simpson may be toward the end of the line when it comes to Tom Watson shelling him out for a tee time, but that could easily change if he performs well in his first match.

Webb Simpson has lacked consistency at times in 2013-14, but hopes a strong history at the TOUR Championship proves to the be the difference this week.

Simpson's last two starts at East Lake Golf Club have resulted in a tie for fifth and a solo fourth each of the last two years. While the 22nd ranked player in the FedExCup standings has missed three of his last eight cuts, he's also recorded two top-five finishes and a third top 10 in that span. His successes have been somewhat predictable, coming on tracks where he's experienced success.

Webb Simpson has joined the U.S. Ryder Cup team as a captain's pick.

Simpson won in his first start of the season at the Shriners and has totaled nine top 10s, including a T9 yesterday at TPC Boston. but his form has alternated between terrific and terrible. He went 2-2-0 in his Ryder Cup debut in 2012 with a pair of 5-for-4 wins while paired with Bubba Watson. And therein lies his value. Expect to see the two God-fearing touring pros pair together again. Simpson concluded the automatic qualifying stage at 15th in points. The 24-man field for the every-other-year competition is now complete. The Ryder Cup is scheduled to be contested at Gleneagles on Sept. 26-28.
