San Francisco Ca. June 17, 2012
Jack Fleck over Ben Hogan. Arnold Palmer's back-nine collapse. The sizzling Sundays of Scott Simpson and Lee Janzen.
Now add Webb Simpson to the Olympic Club's pantheon of Sunday stunners.
The quirky, tilted hillside layout dispensed yet another U.S. Open surprise amid the fog and mist off the California coastline Sunday, placing the trophy in Simpson's hands after a mid-round charge that proved enough when Jim Furyk faltered in the final hour.
The 26-year-old North Carolina native, six shots behind Furyk after five holes, stormed back with four birdies over his next five. Eight pars followed, finishing off a two-under-par 68 that left him one stroke ahead of Michael Thompson and 2010 champion Graeme McDowell.
