Video: Webb Simpson on Wyndham Championship Victory
Posted: August 24, 2011
Not long after hoisting the trophy Sunday evening at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, N.C., Titleist Brand Ambassador Webb Simpson was in a car with his wife and 6-month-old son, heading home to Charlotte.
"It was already past (my son's) bedtime," Webb said, "so my wife and I whispered on the
way home to make sure he stayed asleep."
Webb, 26, has spent plenty of time this year making noise, trusting a Pro V1x golf ball and bag full of Titleist equipment to one of the most consistent seasons on the PGA Tour.
With his victory at the the Wyndham, Webb moved to No. 3 in the FedEx Cup points standings, finishing off a regular season that included seven top-10 finishes and 15 top-25's, including runner-ups at the
Transitions Championship and Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
"It meant the world to me," he said Tuesday at The Barclays, the first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. "I played pretty well all year, I had
a few chances to win, but didn't quite get it done. So I felt the pressure
of winning rise a little bit. So to win in Greensboro,
the area I'm from, was pretty awesome. I had all of my friends and
family there to celebrate with me. So, it was great."
Before arriving home Sunday night, Webb pulled through the drive-thru at Wendy's for a late snack. "Dinner of champions," Webb said, smiling.
They ate in front of the television, glued to the coverage of his first PGA Tour victory.
Webb checked in with Team Titleist on the range Tuesday at The Barclays to talk about the win and one of his key shots down the stretch, which you can watch in the above video.
