Webb Simpson wins U.S. Open
SAN FRANCISCO — Webb Simpson refused to think of himself as a U.S. Open champion until he sat with his nervous wife in a quiet corner of the locker room Sunday, staring in disbelief at a television as Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell tried to catch him.
He was up against a pair of major champions. He was at The Olympic Club, where the wrong guy always wins a U.S. Open.
Simpson should have known now how this would end.
He did his part with four birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn, and a tough par from the collar of the 18th green for a 2-under 68. It was enough to capture his first major when Furyk bogeyed two of his last three holes, and McDowell couldn’t recover from a bad start and too many tee shots in the rough.
“Oh, wow,” Simpson said when McDowell’s 25-foot birdie putt to force a playoff stayed left of the cup
Simpson emerged from a fog-filled final round as a U.S. Open champion, and he put two more names into the graveyard of champions.
“I never really wrapped my mind around winning,” said Simpson, who finished at 1-over 281 to win in only his fifth time at a major. “This place is so demanding, and so all I was really concerned about was keeping the ball in front of me and making pars.”
