Webb Simpson is a professional golfer from the United States of America who is currently a member of the US PGA Tour and mostly remembered for his win at the US Open in 2012.
Starting his career as an amateur, Simpson was a member of the Walker Cup winning United States team in 2007 as well as the team that won the Palmer Cup that same year. Simpson was a student of the Wake Forest University where he studied and played under the Arnold Palmer Scholarship.
Since he turned professional, Simpson was a member of the Nationwide Tour where he finished in the second place on two occasions. He earned his pass to compete on the US PGA Tour after finishing with a T-7 in the 2008 PGA Tour Qualifying School.
Since he joined the US PGA Tour, Webb Simpson did not have the best of times at the beginning with many people beginning to question his abilities as a professional and whether he had the grit to compete in the top tier of professional golf on a regular basis.
But he managed to silence all those critics when he won his titles on the Tour in 2011, first with the Wyndham Championship and then at the FedEx Cup playoff event, the Deutsche Bank Championship. These wins helped turn his career around and he also managed to finish second in the Money list of the PGA Tour for that year.
But arguably the best moment of his career came when in 2012, he secured the US Open, the first, and so far, only major title of his career, beating off the likes of Michael Thompson and Graeme McDowell.
Webb Simpson was also a part of the United States team that won the President’s Cup in his breakthrough season of 2011.
