Webb Simpson captures 2012 U.S. Open, first career major

posted by Chad Bonham

Webb Simpson charged from the back of the pack to overtake leaders Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell and win his first career PGA major at the 112th U.S. Open in San Francisco, Calif. His two under par performance on a stingy Olympic Club course was good enough for the one-stroke victory. He finished at plus one overall.

Earlier this year, Inspiring Athletes posted an interview with Simpson who talked about the importance of integrity and how his faith in God has allowed him to make tough decisions:

“Our deposit of the Holy Spirit living inside of us, more than anything, has allowed me to make those tough decisions,” Simpson said. “It’s happened probably 10 times in my life where I had to make certain calls and call penalty shots on myself. For me, it’s not as much the nature of the game but the fact that the Holy Spirit is prompting me to call a penalty on myself. Within our own nature, we don’t want to call a penalty on ourselves. We want to see how much we can get away with. That’s been a part of every tough decision I’ve made in golf.”

Simpson will be featured in a forthcoming book (along with Stewart Cink, Ben Crane, Jonathan Byrd and several other PGA golfers) called Life in the Fairway. More on that book coming soon, but here’s a sneak preview of the cover art:
