Reached world No.5 with his 2012 US Open victory at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, where he beat Graeme McDowell and Michael Thompson by one. 

Webb Simpson  

Did not appear at The Open a month later because of his wife's pregnancy. Added the 2013 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, but then came closely to slipping out of the top 100 before returning to prominence in May 2018 with a superb four-stroke win at The Players, which included a course record-equalling second round 63. 

It was quickly followed by top-12 finishes at both the US Open and The Open. 

Played in The Walker Cup at Royal County Down in 2007 and in 2011 was poised to top the PGA Tour money list until Luke Donald captured the final event. 

Then came three wins with Bubba Watson on his Presidents Cup debut and he had two more alongside him on his Ryder Cup debut in 2012. 

Was a wildcard selection for the 2014 match at Gleneagles, halving his singles against Ian Poulter, and returned to the side in September 2018 in Paris, winning again with Watson and beating Justin Rose in the singles.
