2012 U.S. Open: Webb Simpson Wins His First Major

Webb Simpson was an afterthought headed into the fourth round of the 2012 U.S. Open on Sunday at The Olympic Club, but by day's end, everyone would know his name as he won the open shooting a final round of 68.

Simpson also shot a 68 on Saturday in round three after registering a 72 and 73 on day's one and two of the tournament, respectively.

Simpson was able to catch leaders Jim Furyk and Graeme McDowell who had both won the open previously. McDowell ended up shooting a 73 on the day and Furyk a 74.

Simpson bogeyed just two holes on Sunday and birdied four, including three consecutive on the sixth, seventh and eighth holes.
