Webb Simpson

Webb Simpson, a three time winner on the PGA Tour, grew up in Raleigh, NC. He attended Broughton High School where he currently is in the hall of fame. After Broughton he enrolled at Wake Forest University on the Arnold Palmer Scholarship where he won many tournaments as an amateur. While in college he also had the privilege of being a member of the victorious U.S. Walker Cup team where he drained a 110-foot eagle putt, as well as playing on the Palmer Cup Team. In 2011 he recorded his first two wins at the Wyndham Championship and Deutsche Bank Championship. Then in 2012 he won the U.S. Open Championship, his first major, beating the world's best at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.

Although golf is an important part of Webb's life, it takes a backseat to his family and his faith. Webb married his college sweetheart on January 2, 2010 and now they live in Charlotte with their three kids. The most important thing to Webb is his faith and relationship with God. It is his desire to glorify God in all aspects of his life, including golf.
