Simpson claims 1st PGA tour win at Wyndham
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Webb Simpson shot a 67 on Sunday to claim his first PGA tour win, a three-stroke victory in the Wyndham Championship.
The Raleigh native and former Wake Forest standout finished at 18-under 262 and collected $936,000.
George McNeill (64) was at 15 under, with Tommy Gainey (69) another stroke back at the final event before the PGA Tour playoffs.
Carl Pettersson (69), Vijay Singh (65), Jerry Kelly (65), Kyung-tae Kim (66) and Charles Howell III (67) each finished at 13 under.
Simpson turned in a steady, bogey-free round and gave himself plenty of breathing room with consecutive birdies on Nos. 15 and 16.
