Simpson spins a Webb of victory from death

The underdog triumphs at the the ‘graveyard of champions’
Webb Simpson, who finished at 1-over 281, won the U.S. Open for his first major championship, holding off Michael Thompson and Graeme McDowell on Sunday at The Olympic Club in San Francisco.
Overlooked for so much of the week, Webb Simpson emerged as U.S. Open champion on a fog-filled Sunday at The Olympic Club to finish at 1-over 281. He watched his “oh wow” victory from the clubhouse.
Graeme McDowell, who won the U.S. Open two years ago, settled for a second-place tie this time around with Michael Thompson. McDowell had a 25-foot birdie chance on the 18th to force a playoff, but it wasn’t close.
Michael Thompson closed with a 67 and waited two hours to see if it would be good enough to win the U.S. Open. It wasn’t. The first-round leader shared second place with Graeme McDowell.
