Sunday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the winners and losers on Sunday at Olympic Club? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

June 16, 2012
Webb Simpson

Birdie : Webb Simpson

Perhaps it's fitting that a man who attended Wake Forest on the Arnold Palmer Scholarship would break through on a course that was the site of the King's most crushing loss. Simpson fired a second-straight 68 and posted the winning score ahead of the final group when he got up and down from a horrific lie in the greenside rough. A two-time winner on the PGA Tour in 2011 when he finished runner-up in the FedEx Cup race, Simpson certainly isn't a surprise winner. But in extending the streak of first-time major winners to nine, he reinforces an era of parity in golf.
