Webb Simpson posted a career-best finish at last year's Masters and returns this week for the 80th edition, looking to build upon that effort.
Simpson recorded a T44 in his 2012 Masters debut and then returned with two straight missed cuts before last year's T28. Overall, he's signed for rounds of 2-over 74 or worse in six of his 12 rounds here at Augusta National. Simpson arrives with an 181st ranking next to his name in the strokes gained:putting category. His putting woes combined with poor course history make him a long shot to contend this week in Augusta, Georgia. Apr 6 - 8:50 AM

Webb Simpson returned to action with a 1-under-par 36-34=70 opening round at this week's Valspar Championship.

The Wake Forest product was a last-minute WD at the Honda Classic two weeks ago, so it's nice to see him return without an issue today. Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club's Copperhead Course is the site of four top 20s for Simpson, so it wasn't too surprising to see him circled four birdies, offsetting a three-pack of bogeys. Simpson entered the week ranked 169th in strokes gained:putting and his 4-foot birdie miss on the par-5 14th really showcased that ranking. However, he also managed to splash in three birdie bombs from outside 15 feet on the day, the longest from 23'2" on the par-4 seventh. If Simpson can keep putting to field average or better then he'll remain in contention throughout the week.

Webb Simpson has pulled his name from the field at this week's Honda Classic. He will be replaced by Dawie van der Walt.

Matt Lincoln of CBS12 spilled the beans with a tweet that said "We are down a former major winner @TheHondaClassic - @webbsimpson1 has withdrawn (from PGA tour official)". There is no reason cited at this point. He was on the grounds of PGA National yesterday, so it could be anything from a injury tweak to a personal matter. Regardless, we will update if any further news comes out about the WD. This is the second week in a row that van der Walt sneaks into the field mid-week as an alternate.

Webb Simpson carved out a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 199, up 20 places on the live leaderboard to T5.

Simpson is 6-for-6 at Waialae CC with a best of T9 in his 2009 debut. He opened last year's edition with a career-best 62, T1 after 18 holes, but faded to T13 closing in 66-72-69. This year's visit opened with a pair of 67s, circling five birdies and squaring two bogeys on each loop. The 30-year-old squared two bogeys in Saturday's play as well, but he upped his birdie total to seven on 13 greens in regulation, including three straight to open his round. Six of seven found the bottom of the cup from inside 12 feet with a long of 16'5" coming at the par-4 second.

Webb Simpson sets his eyes on Waialae Country Club at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The Wake Forest product finished T9 in his 2009 Sony debut. He enjoyed the trip to Honolulu so much, that he's returned five times since, adding a couple more top 20s along the way. The four-time PGA TOUR winner went 1-for-2 during the fall, to collect just 12.50 FedExCup points. Gamers should take note of his solid course history and feel comfortable taking a shot this week.

Webb Simpson finished 48th in the FedExCup standings last season, failing to qualify for the TOUR Championship for the first time since the 2010 season.

Simpson opened his eighth TOUR season with a missed cut (by four) at the Frys.com Open and a T56 at the Shriners on rounds of 71-69-71-70. He didn't win last season (22 starts) so we won't see him at the Hyundai TOC, but most likely at the Sony, where he co-lead after 18 holes last year with an 8-under 62, eventually settling for a T13. The 30-year-old finished calendar year 2014 at No. 43 in the Official World Golf Ranking and sits at No. 75 at the time of this writing. It's been a steady decline for the Demon Deacon, who once ranked as high as fifth in the OWGR following his win at the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Webb Simpson arrived at the midpoint of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in 2-under-par 71-69=140, one of 12 to shared 69th place entering the weekend.

So, since 80 professionals survived the cut, a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes. Simpson won this tournament two years ago, has a pair of T4s and ranks second in all-time earnings at this tournament, but that success faced off against his transition to the non-anchored putting stroke this week. It wasn't pretty in the first round as his strokes gained: putting measured minus-2.996. He recovered for 0.621 in the second round, but to eke out a payday at TPC Summerlin with 28 scoring opportunities isn't Simpson-esque.

The opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open was suspended for darkness at 6:08 p.m. PT with 13 golfers having yet to complete the opening round.

The field was increased by 12 to 144 last year to accommodate more golfers in the reshuffle in the opening phase. Despite beginning the day before 7:00 a.m., there simply wasn't enough daylight in perfect conditions to get everyone through today. So, the second round is scheduled to resume at 7:30 a.m. on Friday. Former champion Webb Simpson (2013) carded an even-par 37-34=71 with three birdies, two bogeys and a double. He's second in all-time earnings at the event with only three paydays. The other two were T4s.

Webb Simpson turns his attention to this week's BMW Championship and enters the penultimate Playoffs event ranked 42nd in the FedExCup standings.

Simpson is 18-for-21 on the season with five top 10s, but just one finished inside the top five, a T2 in his home state of North Carolina. In his nine starts since the Wells Fargo, he's missed two cuts and registered one top 20, a T6 at the Wyndham Championship (North Carolina). At the BMW, the 30-year-old has two top 25s in five appearances, including a T24 at Conway Farms GC in 2013 (72-69-69-71) and solo fifth (Cog Hill G&CC) in 2011. His other three results show: T61/2009, T51/2012, and T53 last year at Cherry Hills CC. In 20 career rounds at the various venues, Simpson has posted just nine rounds at par-or-better. He opened his seventh postseason with T30 at The Barclays and T44 at the Deutsche Bank.

Past champ Webb Simpson tacked on a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina, to post 14-under 266, good for a four-way tie for sixth place.

Playing in his seventh championship at Sedgefield Country Club, the 2011 champ began his final frame at 12-under (T5) and three adrift of 54-hole leader Jason Gore. On his round, the North Carolinian landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, registering a disappointing 1.923 putts per GIR. Simpson entered the week ranked 170th on TOUR in strokes gained: putting and his woes continued, posting a cumulative -1.551, 55th out of 70 that made the cut. He mustered his fourth top 10 and six consecutive top-25 finish in the tournament by going third on the week in strokes gained: tee-to-green at 10.826 over the four days. This was the 30-year-old's fifth top 10 of the season on 19 starts and places him 40th in the FedExCup standings heading into the Playoffs.

Webb Simpson twirled a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the three-quarter pole at 12-under 198, one shot back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Jonas Blixt.

Simpson began the day at 6-under (T22) and five off the pace. The 2011 champ split 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation en route to his seventh round of 64 or better in 24 career rounds at Sedgefield Country Club. Simpson circled six birdies on his latest loop, including three consecutive on Nos. 15-17, to augment an eagle-3 (from 7'9") at the par-5 fifth. It was his third eagle of the week (two in round one), first in the tournament in that stat at last check. The 30-year-old converted four of his six birdies from inside of four feet with a long of 14'4" coming at the par-3 16th. He squared bogey at the third and the 11th, the former a three-putt from 6'11".

Webb Simpson signed for an even-par 36-34=70 following his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

And he'll take it. Simpson found only five (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation at Firestone today. In exchanging three birdies with three bogeys, he was never more than one stroke from either side of par all day. His most notable birdie dropped in from 12'1" at the par-4 third, but his longest conversion taped off at 15'6" at the par-4 14th. At 2-under 138, Simpson is six swings in arrears of Jim Furyk's 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Webb Simpson twirled a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Seemingly stuck between his old anchored putting stroke and a firm commitment to his new method, Simpson's game has floundered since a T2 at his home-course Wells Fargo Championship. In fact, today's score is his lowest aggregate since a third-round 68 at Quail Hollow in mid-May. He piped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation at Firestone today en route to four birdies against a pair of bogey-5s. Simpson's notable birdies measured 16'9" at the par-4 13th hole and 29'4" at the par-3 fifth, but he also salvaged par from 11'11" at the par-5 second. He signed his card positioned three swings off the overnight lead.

Webb Simpson makes his third appearance at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and his 11th career WGC start overall.

In his last five starts on TOUR, Simpson has posted T2, MC, T46 (U.S. Open), MC and T40 (5-under) at The Open Championship on rounds of 70-70-71-72. The T2 (Wells Fargo Championship) is a season best on 16 starts and one of four top 10s, good for 53rd in the FedExCup standings. The 29-year-old has made the TOUR Championship in each of the past four years and finished a career-best second in the final FEC standings of 2011. Simpson has played in two prior WGC-Bridgestone Invitationals posting a T31 in 2014 and a T14 in 2013. At the 2013 edition, he lead after a first-round, 6-under 64. He concluded in 75-73-66. Simpson finished T7 this year at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and T28 at the Masters. He ranks ninth on TOUR in strokes gained: tee-to-green but 167th in strokes gained: putting.

Webb Simpson will get an early start on his preparation for The Open Championship after missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic.

After missing the cut in the inaugural Greenbrier in 2010, Simpson connected four paydays, three of which for a top 10. That string ended today with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his second round. At 3-over 143, he fell five shots outside the bubble to play on. He'll take next week off. Other notables who failed to survive today's cut include: 139--2013 champ Jonas Blixt; Daniel Berger; Marc Leishman; Steve Stricker ... 140--Bill Haas; Nick Watney; Charles Howell III; Colt Knost; Nick Taylor ... 141--Cameron Tringale; Rory Sabbatini; Scott Pinckney ... 145--Fabian Gomez ... 148--Daniel Summerhays.
