Webb Simpson US Open Champion! Happy Father's Day

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Asheville 1031 Real Estate Investments 209970

Webb Simpson is one of my heroes...not just because of his skill at a very chaWebb Simpson and James (2011)llenging game of golf, not because he won an Arnold Palmer Scholarship and attended Wake Forest right here in North Carolina, but because, as I wrote about him in August of 2011,

he is a family man with his priorities in order. 

This North Carolina man had just won the Wyndham Golf Classic at Greensboro, NC  when he also won my heart as he comforted his then 6-month old Baby James, who was so afraid of all the noise that he began to cry.

A prominent sports reporter and big shining trophy had to take their turn.


Today, I watched as he won a major championship having competed right to the end with Jim Furyk (who had been in the lead all weekend) and Graeme McDowell ...and he did this with modesty and his expression of appreciation that his wife was able to be with him at this event.

Webb Simpson inspires greatness not only on the links, but far beyond the golf course.

CONGRATULATIONS on your US OPEN win! We love you here in Asheville!

I didn't get a chance to see the Open but saw the news. I enjoyed seeing him and his wife watching for the locker room as he won the Open. 

Thanks for the post janeAnne.
