During his AJGA and junior career, Webb Simpson had thirteen top-five finishes including a first place finish at the 2001 Rolex Tournament of Champions. Simpson was also named first-team Rolex Junior All-American for four consecutive years (2001-2004).
Simpson moved on to play four years of collegiate golf at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, N.C. where he graduated in 2008.
Now, in his second year of professional golf, Simpson is No. 88 in the PGA Tour All-Around Rankings, having played in 23 events.
After much success on all levels, Simpson decided to give back to the place where he got his start by hosting an AJGA event. In its first year, the AccuSport Championship hosted by Webb Simpson is being held at Tanglewood Park.
“I would say the number one thing was just how much AJGA meant to me and how it helped me develop my game growing up,” Simpson said. “I wanted to give back and partner with them.”
Simpson made an appearance on Monday during the Junior-Am and Players Registration where he was able to interact with the juniors.
“It’s neat being out here because I love to stay involved,” Simpson said. “I love junior golf and I love seeing players develop. If we do this again next year and the years after I want to be able to come back every year.”
