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.
