2012 U.S. Open: Webb Simpson Takes Home First Major Win

Webb Simpson came from four strokes back on Sunday's final round at the 2012 U.S. Open to win his first ever major championship. Simpson shot a 2-under on Saturday to set up his move for Sunday where he also shot 2-under par.

The first few holes on Simpson's final round did not look like he was going to become the next U.S. Open champion as bogied the second and fifth holes. Simpson stepped up his game and proceeded to birdie the next three holes and four of the next five to shoot up the leaderboard. Simpson would finish the round by making par over the final eight holes.

Jim Furyk who led the entire final round stumbled by bogeying three of the final five holes which included the 16th and 18th hole. With that slip up, Furyk finished the tournament 3-over par tied for fourth place.
