U.S. Open 2012 Results: Webb Simpson Stands Atop Olympic

After four challenging and thrilling rounds of golf, Webb Simpson walked away with his first major victory at the 2012 U.S. Open in San Francisco at the Olympic Club.

Simpson came from behind on Sunday to overtake a faltering Jim Furyk, who just couldn't get out of his own way. Graeme McDowell was close the entire afternoon and well into the evening, but he couldn't get over the proverbial hump.

Tiger Woods was never a factor on Sunday. After looking so good the first two days, Woods derailed with a 75 on Saturday, knocking him out for all intents and purposes.

Keegan Bradley, the Woodstock, VT native, finished 18-over for the tournament, a very distant 68th.

The real story was Simpson, who made key putts down the stretch and had one run of four birdies in five holes. On one of the toughest courses in the world, it was Simpson who was able to stay on track throughout with tough pin locations and at times, inclement weather.
