Webb Simpson Wins U.S. Open
The Wake Forest grad won in just the second U.S. Open he has competed in, and his fifth major played. His victory marks the ninth consecutive major championship on the Tour in which the winner has been a first-timer.
So, what do you get for winning the hardest tournament on Tour? Exemptions into the next 10 U.S. Opens and next 5 Masters would be the two standouts if you ask me. He can literally sit on his couch, do absolutely nothing, spend the $1.44 million he just made, and still get to play in the U.S. Open until 2022.
Congratulations, Webb. Going 4-under on the weekend is pretty damn impressive.
