0 comment

American Webb Simpson achieved his maiden major title with victory on fantastic final day in the 2012 US Open. The 26-year-old beat Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell and fellow American Michael Thompson by one shot at a foggy Olympic Club in San Francisco. Simpson shot 68 to set the target at one over and watched as 2010 champion McDowell missed a 25ft putt to force a play-off on the 18th.

Simpson, who climbs to fifth in the world, becomes the 15th different major winner in a row, the ninth straight first-time winner and the third consecutive American to win one of golf’s grand slam events. “I’ve never felt nerves like I felt today,” said Simpson, who was pipped to the US money list title by England’s Luke Donald last year. “I had to hit my legs because I couldn’t feel them. “I probably prayed more the last three holes than I ever did in my life.”
