GREENSBORO -- A former North Carolina High School Athletic Association men's state golf champion earned his first victory on the PGA tour over the weekend.
Webb Simpson scored a three-shot victory over the field at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro to win the Wyndham Championship, recording an 18-under par score for the event. The 26-year-old Simpson, who has won $3.66 million this year, is third overall in the FedEx Cup standings.
Simpson, who played collegiately at Wake Forest, was the 2004 NCHSAA state 4-A men's individual champion while he played for Broughton High School in Raleigh. His score of 141 won the individual crown in the 36-hole tournament played on Pinehurst courses number four and two as he led Broughton to the team championship.
