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. Sep 24 - 8:45 AM

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.
Sep 2 - 7:32 PM

Webb Simpson turned in an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to share ninth at 9-under 275.

Simpson was trying to make one last impression on Tom Watson ahead of the announcement of Ryder Cup captain's picks on Tuesday, but he was unable to mount a charge. His two birdies both occurred from inside four feet and each were erased by a pair of bogeys. He will now keep his cell phone charged and hope for the best.
Sep 1 - 6:46 PM

Webb Simpson conjured up a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the final round safely inside the top 10 at 9-under 204.

Simpson has everything on the line this weekend, as he is trying to perform well enough to convince Tom Watson to burn one of his three Ryder Cup captain's picks on him at the conclusion of the tournament. The Wake Forest product circled five birdies but gave back on double bogey on his lap around TPC Boston. Highlights included birdies from 14'8" on the par-5 seventh and 23 feet on the par-4 13th.
Aug 31 - 5:07 PM

Webb Simpson signed for a 1-under-par 36-34=70 following his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The aggregate appears much as how a duck look above the surface of the pond. Below it, Simpson grinded all day long. He triple-bogeyed the par-4 14th and squared three bogeys, only to claw all the way back and then some with seven birdies, including a pair to walk off at Nos. 8 and 9. His longest par breaker measured 19'8" at the par-4 first hole. At 6-under 136, he's just two strokes back of the twosome atop the leaderboard after 36 holes.
Aug 30 - 7:23 PM

Webb Simpson posted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing one strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Like clubhouse leader Keegan Bradley, Simpson is chasing a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup. He came out firing with a birdie from 13'1" at the par-4 first hole. He bogeyed the par-5 second where he failed to get up and down from the fringe, but he played his final 16 holes in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. The set featured rolls of 25'6" and 33'9" at Nos. 14 and 16, respectively. Simpsons won this tournament in 2011, so there's very much a comfort zone out there for him.
Aug 29 - 2:25 PM

Webb Simpson surged for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to nab a top-10 finish at 14-under 266.

The Wake Forest product erased a couple of early birdies with a double bogey at the par-4 11th when he needed four putts to get the ball in the cup after hitting the GIR. When it seemed like he was fading into oblivion, he stood tall with three birdies on his final four holes, including a 19'1" effort on the par-4 18th. His 12-footer on the par-4 fourth was the other noteworthy highlight. He is slated to move from 18th to 13th in the FedExCup standings just in time for the Playoffs, and should be worthy of consideration for a captain's selection in the upcoming Ryder Cup should he continue his fine form.
Aug 17 - 5:33 PM

Webb Simpson navigated Sedgefield CC in 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the third round of the Wyndham Championship and enters the finale at 11-under 199.

Simpson's eagle from 8'6" on the par-5 fifth was longer than any of his three birdies, and he surrendered just one bogey on the afternoon. His impressive proximity is a big reason as to why he didn't gain strokes on the field with his long wand. He landed a pedestrian 12 GIR.
Aug 16 - 4:50 PM

Webb Simpson followed his opening 64 at the Wyndham Championship with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round.

Simpson knows Sedgefield Country Club as well as anyone, but he's not immune to avoiding the likely fade after a low round. He went 4-for-6 in scrambling, but managed only three birdies, all from inside eight feet. He fanned on four tries inside 10 feet. At 7-under 133, the 2011 champ is three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 15 - 12:32 PM

Webb Simpson shot a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

The 2011 champ at Sedgefield went off the first tee this afternoon and opened with a six-yarder from just off the green at the par 4. He chased it with three more birdies to sit 4-under through four. Simpson added a round-long birdie from 21'4" at the par-3 seventh and two more on the back side before stumbling to a 5 at the par-4 17th where he whiffed on his par attempt from just inside three feet. Overall, he set up the strong day with 12 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation.
Aug 14 - 5:55 PM

Webb Simpson returns to the site of his first PGA TOUR victory at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The North Carolina native will have plenty of support from friends and family as he navigates one of his favorite venues. Attending college just 30 miles away at Wake Forest, he is very familiar with the area, and it shows. Since his disappointing 2009 debut, he has finished 22nd or better in each of the past four editions, including his 2011 victory. While his form has stuttered as of late, gamers should have no fear trotting Simpson out this week, in any format.

Webb Simpson returns to the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational for his second peek at Firestone Country Club's South Course.

Simpson made quite the first impression with Firestone CC, posting a 64 to grab the first-round lead in his introduction. The Wake Forest product couldn't replicate his success over the next two days, but did finish with a strong 66 on Sunday to get back inside the top 15. Simpson always enjoys playing on par 70 courses, as he's shown with seven top 15s in his last 10 tournaments played on such courses.
Jul 30 - 9:33 AM

Webb Simpson lit up The Old White TPC for a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post the clubhouse lead at 10-under 270.

The Wake Forest product and former U.S. Open winner circled seven birdies and amassed 11 pars on his Sunday stroll. Four of those birdies fell from between 11 and 17 feet, so the long wand was working from mid-range. It wasn't just the putter that propped him up, though he did gain over three strokes with the flat stick, as he split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR. Simpson entered the round tied for 43rd and was an afterthought, but there were only two players ahead of him on the golf course at the time of his posting.
Jul 6 - 2:33 PM

Webb Simpson has flirted with success at The Greenbrier Classic and is back for another shot in this week's edition.

After a rough introduction in 2010, Simpson has grown to like The Old White TPC. In 2011, he shared a piece of the 36-hole lead before fading to a T9 finish. He took it a step further in 2012, owning the outright 36 and 54-hole leads before a Sunday 73 dropped him to a share of 7th place. Signing for 66 or better in five of his last 12 rounds shows his propensity to go low on this easy track, and makes Simpson a very strong option for gamers across all formats.
