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. Oct 24 - 11:57 AM

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.
Aug 6 - 7:15 PM

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.
Aug 5 - 11:25 AM

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.
Jul 3 - 7:50 PM

Webb Simpson followed his opening 69 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 5-over-par 34-41=75 to post 4-over 144 and miss the cut by three strokes.

He was gliding along until making the turn onto the front side of TPC Southwind today. After 27 holes, Simpson was 2-under. He then bogeyed Nos. 1, 2 and 3. After a par at the par-3 fourth, he went double bogey-bogey before walking off with three straight pars. The good news is that he'll have a couple of extra days to prep for the U.S. Open, but this isn't what gamers expected this week, especially since he tied for second in his last start at Quail Hollow and tied for third here last year. Other notables that failed to survive the cut include: 142--Cameron Tringale; Jerry Kelly ... 143--two-time champ Justin Leonard ... 144--Shawn Stefani ... 145--Padraig Harrington ... 147--1994 champ Dicky Pride; Charles Howell III ... 149--Graeme McDowell ... 150--Chesson Hadley; Jamie Donaldson.
Jun 12 - 8:25 PM

After a three-week break, Webb Simpson returns to action in Memphis, Tennessee, at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Simpson is 3-for-4 at the St. Jude with one top-25 finish. That came as a T3 however, in last year's edition. After opening in 1-over-par 71, he closed in 66-69-66 to progressively vault up the leaderboard. Simpson arrives this week at 36th in the FedExCup standings going 11-for-12 on the season with four top 10s, including a season-best T2 at the Wells Fargo Championship in his last start. The 29-year-old co-lead after 36 holes in Charlotte and was solo second after 54 (flashback to Rory McIlroy's third-round 61). The native North Carolinian couldn't muster a Sunday charge, closing with a disappointing even-par 72. As the 2012 U.S. Open champion, Simpson is already exempt into next week's 115th U.S. Open Championship.
Jun 10 - 10:18 AM

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.
May 17 - 6:39 PM

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.
May 16 - 6:43 PM

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).
May 15 - 6:12 PM

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.
