Webb Simpson believes that patience must be one of the most important traits that every golfer should have.
He said that he has learned in his nine years at the PGA tour level that there is nothing one can achieve by being fidgety. You will only end up losing more than gaining. Playing the game with a clear mind and with lots of patience on your mind will help you to easily achieve your goals. Patience is what helped Simpson to lift the 2012 US Open at Olympic Club in San Francisco.
As most of the courses where PGA championships are held are hard courses, hence it is easy to make stupid mistakes when playing. Simpson says that you should get past your dumb mistake and concentrate on what is in front of you in order to achieve bigger things. He is a player who gives due importance to family and spends plenty of quality time with his family. Even in the middle of the Baltusrol US PGA tournament in New Jersey, he headed straight to the rented apartment that he had taken for a week to spend some time with his wife Doud and his four children.
It was only in May that Simpson’s youngest daughter Mercy was born. He is such a loving family man that he diverted moving to the Players Championship venue at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla, and headed straight to Charlotte as she was close to her due date. As soon as Webb reached Charlotte, his wife Doud had contractions and drove immediately to Carolinas Medical Center.
The best part is that Doud along with her four kids, all under the age of five, travel with Simpson for most of his tournaments. Simpson acknowledges his golfing success and unparalleled happiness are all due to his wife Doud and his four children.
