Webb Simp­son has com­pleted his ca­reer res­ur­rec­tion in style by dom­i­nat­ing THE PLAY­ERS Cham­pi­onship at TPC Saw­grass. Simp­son, a for­mer U.S. Open cham­pion who has spent three years rein­vent­ing him­self af­ter the an­chor putting ban, claimed his fifth PGA TOUR win by four shots af­ter a 1-over 73 fi­nal round.

“It’s been a long time. We did it,” Simp­son said as he em­braced his wife Dowd on the fi­nal green.

It left him 18 un­der for the tour­na­ment to be four shots clear of Charl Schwartzel (67), Jimmy Walker (67) and PGA

TOUR Rookie of the Year Xan­der Schauf­fele (67) who tied for sec­ond place at 14 un­der.

Such was Simp­son’s dom­i­nance that he was able to hook his ap­proach on the 72nd hole into the wa­ter, make a dou­ble bo­gey, and still fin­ish well clear. It is Simp­son’s first win since tak­ing out the Shriners Hos­pi­tals for Chil­dren Open in Las Ve­gas in Oc­to­ber 2013.
