Golf - Simpson wins at Hilton head

Posted on

Webb Simpson claimed victory in the second event staged since the PGA Tour restarted, at Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.

Simpson shot a 64 in the final round, with five birdies in the final seven holes, to win in a tournament record 22 under-par.

Simpson's fellow American Abraham Ancer shot a 65 as he finished second one stroke behind.

England's Tyrrell Hatton and last week's winner, Daniel Berger (USA), finished two shots behind Simpson in joint-third.

The tournament at the Harbour Town Links was three hours behind schedule because of a storm on the South Carolina coast.
