Simpson takes out Wyndham Championship

GREENSBORO, North Carolina, (Reuters) – American  Webb Simpson won the Wyndham Championship by three strokes yesterday to capture his first PGA title.

Simpson shot a final-round three-under-par 67 to finish on 18  under at the Sedgefield Country Club.

George McNeil closed with a 64 to claim second place for the  sixth time in a PGA Tour event and his fellow American Tommy  Gainey was a further shot back at 14 under. Fiji’s former world  number one Vijay Singh was among a group of five players who  tied for fourth at 13 under.

Simpson became the 12th first-time winner on the PGA Tour  this season but one of the least surprising as the 26-year-old  had finished runner-up on three occasions.
