Webb Simpson torched TPC Sawgrass in round two of THE PLAYERS, escaping with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to enter the weekend inside the top 10 on 4-under 140.
Simpson striped it today at TPC Sawgrass, giving himself seven birdie looks from inside 16 feet but he only converted three of those. In addition to those traditional circles, he holed out for 34'3" at the seveth and also drained a 25-footer at the ninth. Most impressive was his putting though, sinking eight putts from outside seven feet, six of those from double-digit lengths. Not known for his flat-stick skills, Simpson walked off the course gaining 2.149 strokes putting today. The Wake Forest has just one top 60 in seven trips to THE PLAYERS, but he's off to a great start this week, just one off the pace on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

Webb Simpson looks to build on a T11 in his latest start as he preps for a familiar Eagle Point Golf Club ahead of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

With Quail Hollow prepping for the PGA Championship, a new venue will play the host role this week. Nobody in the field is more excited than Simpson who holds membership at Eagle Point Golf Club, giving him a slight leg up before the action even starts. The Wake Forest product has played hundreds of rounds here over the years but he will need to get used to the TOUR conditions as they've lengthened the layout in anticipation of this week. On top of course knowledge, Simpson is arriving with a T11 at the RBC Heritage, positioning himself T3 after R3 before drifting on Sunday. That RBC finish broke a stretch of six straight events finishing outside the top 35. With course knowledge and a good recent result, Simpson is one to target in all fantasy formats this week.

World No. 69 Webb Simpson orchestrated a 3-under-par 32-36=68 on Day 3 of the RBC Heirtage to reach 11-under 202, two adrift of 54-hole leader Jason Dufner, who shot 65.

After opening in 66-68, the North Carolina native and resident began the third frame in a two-way T3, two back of 36-hole co-leaders Graham DeLaet and Luke Donald. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found himself joint leader after playing his first six holes in 4-under, but then played his final 12 holes in birdie-less 1-over, squaring bogey-5 at the 16th (failed scramble). The 31-year-old, a playoff loser here in 2013, ended the day where he started, in a two-way T3, and will play out of the penultimate twosome again on Sunday. He's a 4-time winner on TOUR in 221 career starts, but not since the 2014 Shriners where he was the 54-hole leader.

World No. 69 Webb Simpson handed in a 3-under-par 33-35=68 after the second round of the RBC Heritage to post 8-under 134, up three places to T2, two in arrears to 36-hole clubhouse leader Graham DeLaet.

The North Carolina native and resident conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, circling four less birdies on Day 2 but squaring two less bogeys as well. All of his action came on the first nine, camouflaging bogey-6 at five with birdies at Nos. 2, 4, 6 and 9, each from inside of nine feet. The Wake Forest alum finished up with nine straight pars, but had just one scoring try from inside of 23 feet, missing a 10-footer at the par-4 16th.

Webb Simpson had a wild ride around Harbour Town Golf Links in round one of the RBC Heritage, finishing up with a 5-under-par 32-34=66, placing him in an early share of fourth place.

The Wake Forest product sank four putts from outside 12 feet today but also missed on from 4'7" at the par-4 16th. Adding to his wild ride, he went bunker-to-bunker at the 17th before holing out his second bunker shot to save bogey. On top of the short-game highlights, Simpson stuck three different approach shots to inside three feet, all for tap-in birdies. Those approaches came from 166 yards, 198 yards, and 112 yards at the 18th, 8th, and 9th holes, respectively. Simpson capped off his round with five straight birdies on his way into the clubhouse. The 31-year-old is making his eighth starts at the RBC Heritage this week, with the highlight being a runner-up finish in 2013.
Apr 13 - 5:32 PM

World No. 67 Webb Simpson prepares for his sixth consecutive Masters and is paired the first two rounds with 2-time champ Jose Maria Olazabal of Spain and Ryan Moore.

Overall, this is the 31-year-old's 23rd major appearance with one top 10, his 1-shot win at the 2012 U.S. Open in San Francisco (Olympic Club). He's in the field from that win and similar to his full exempt TOUR status, expires this year. The Wake Forest alum is 3-for-5 at Augusta National with a best of T28 in 2015 (69-75-72-71) and owns a 73.38 scoring average in 16 rounds. He enters the week 31st in FedExCup points with one top 10 among nine cashes (in 12 starts), a P2 at the WM Phoenix Open. Simpson ranks 20th on TOUR in SG: Tee-to-Green and 200th in SG: Putting (-0.659).

Webb Simpson styled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Valspar Championship, staking out a spot inside the top 10 after 18 holes.

The Wake Forest product opened on the back nine and picked off birdies at his opening two holes (11'6" at the par-10th and 6'1" at the par-5 11th). Simpson continued to split fairways, missing just 3-of-13 on the day. He would add circles after the turn at the par-4 third and par-5 fifth holes before swallowing his lone bogey of the round. The blemish came at the par-3 eighth where he missed a bunny, from 3'5". Simpson bounced back nicely at his closing hole, sticking his 155-yard approach shot to four inches for a tap-in, walkoff birdie. While Simpson has missed the cut in his last two Valspar visits, he's no stranger to success around here as he rattled off four straight top 20s before that.

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 56 Webb Simpson sleepwalked to a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and at 1-over 71-72-73=216, missed the scheduled 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 77 pros from a field of 156 made the 54-hole cut of even-par 215. However, with only the top 60 (and ties) advancing to Sunday's final round, 12 players were MDF and will not play in the finale: Tyler Aldridge; Robert Streb; J.T. Poston; William McGirt; Brian Gay; Sean O'Hair; Martin Laird; Steve Marino; Jim Furyk; Ryan Brehm; Rich Breberian, Jr.; Xander Schauffele. Joining Simpson among the notable MCs are: 216- Sung Kang; Chez Reavie; J.J. Spaun ... 217- Matt Kuchar; Cameron Smith ... 218- Roberto Castro; Charley Hoffman ... 219- Ryan Palmer; defender Vaughn Taylor ... 220- Grayson Murray ... 221- Dominic Bozzelli.

Playing out of the fifth-to-last threesome in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, World No. 89 Webb Simpson twirled the day's low round with a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-33=64 to match defending champ Hideki Matsuyama on 17-under 267, and then lost on the fourth hole of sudden death.

The 31-year-old was making his 215th career start (213 pro) and seventh start of the season with a previous-best T13 at the Sony. He was chasing his fifth TOUR title, first since the 2014 Shriners (as 54-hole leader), but settles for his sixth career runner-up, and drops to 1-4 in extra time. After opening 67-71-65, the Wake Forest alum began on 10-under (T12), six back of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An. He kicked off with eagle-3 at three and circled birdie-3s at 6 and 8 (from 28'8") to turn 4-under. The North Carolinian opened the back side with five straight pars before birdieing 15, 17 and 18. In the playoff, the pair matched par 4s on holes 18, 18, and 10, with Simpson having birdie tries to win on each (from between 17 and 25 feet), and then succumbed with par at the 17th to Matsuyama's birdie-3 from 10'6". Simpson's P2 is his best in seven appearances, fifth straight top 15, and fourth top 10.
Feb 5 - 7:28 PM

World No. 89 Webb Simpson crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day tally of 10-under 203, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T12.

The 31-year-old is making his seventh appearance and has four straight top-15 finishes, including a pair of T8s in 2011 and 2012. Today's lap was his 25th at TPC Scottsdale and tied a personal low (2012/R1). After opening in 67-71, the Wake Forest alum began on 4-under (T28) and squared a lone bogey-4 at the raucous par-3 16th (3-jacking from 38'8"), but sandwiched it with birdies on 15 and 17, and five other circles, highlighted by a 30-footer for birdie-3 at 11 and a pitch-in 2 at the par-3 fourth.
Feb 4 - 4:30 PM

Webb Simpson recovered from an early hiccup to sign for a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, climbing to 9-under 131 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product got off to a rocky start after missing the green at the par-4 first hole and that resulted in a bogey. Simpson rallied from there to circle six birdies and no more bogeys. That included a three-hole birdie train from holes 7 to 9. The Achilles heal is always the flat stick but he's gained 1.901 strokes putting through two days of play. Today, he splashed home three putts in the 12-to-14 foot range. Simpson already owns three top 15s here at Waialae Country Club and he could be on his way to a fourth, especially if his putter can stay hot over the weekend.
Jan 13 - 5:09 PM

Playing out of the final threesome, Webb Simpson patched together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba dropping three places to solo fifth on 14-under 199, four in arrears to 54-hole leader Gary Woodland.

The 31-year-old began the third frame in solo second one shy of overnight leader Woodland after kicking off his tourney debut with twin bogey-free 65s. He was heading in the right direction with birdie at the par-4 third and eagle at the par-5 fifth before eating a double bogey-7 at the seventh after trouble off the tee. The North Carolinian didn't do much from there, but did outpace bogey-5 at 16 with birdies at the par-5 13th and a walk-off 3 at the 18th. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and improved slightly to 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR.

Webb Simpson styled a second-straight clean card, posting a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to arrive at the midpoint on 12-under 130, one stroke off the clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

The Wake Forest product circled six birdies in round one and did the same today. Yesterday his score made a lot of sense as he landed 16 greens in regulation but today he only managed 10. Scrambling was the key to success today as he went 8-for-8 getting up-and-down, including a Sandy at the par-4 third hole. Despite having no course history to speak of, the 31-year-old is having a field day at El Camaleón Golf Club to find himself just one off the pace through two days of action. Simpson is searching for his first PGA TOUR win since the 2014 Shriners Hopsitals for Children Open.

Making his tournament debut Webb Simpson scattered six birdies en route to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round one, staking early claim of the clubhouse lead at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The OHL Classic is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week, but Simpson is getting his first look. He had no troubles getting adjusted to El Camaleón Golf Club, circling a three-hole birdie train that started at the par-4 third hole. After that, he picked up birdies at each of the remaining par 5s as well as the par-4 11th. Simpson splashed 16 greens on the day, to keep things relatively stress-free with the flat stick. The Wake Forest product is coming off a season where he found just two top 10s, his lowest tally since 2010. A big finish this week would go along way in terms of re-instilling some potentially lost confidence.

Past champion Webb Simpson returns to TPC Summerlin for his sixth appearance at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Wake Forest product missed the cut in his 2009 Shriners debut before figuring things out and recording a trio of top 5s over his next four trips, including a victory at the 2014 edition where he lapped the field by six strokes. During that win he circled 28 birdies to easily offset four bogeys, gaining 9.81 strokes putting along the way. That includes a second round 8-under 63 where he needed just 24 putts to make his way around TPC Summerlin, one-putting on all but six holes. The following year he proved his success is not reliant on the flat stick as he lost 0.08 strokes putting on the week but still finished T4 by week's end. Gamers looking for a course horse this week, should give Simpson some serious consideration.
