U.S. Open Highlights 2012: Webb Simpson Makes The Shots

There were a bevy of terrific shots during the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. However, maybe the most dramatic was just a little chip shot on the fringe of the green.

Simpson, leading by only a single shot, had a tough lie on the edge of the 18th green. With perhaps the championship resting in the balance, Simpson made a beautiful shot putting the ball within three feet of the cup. He would tap in from there and the rest is history.

For a look at that memorable shot and others from Sunday, please check out this video.

While maybe not as important to the outcome of the tournament, there were many other moments to savor.

Take a few from Day Three, such as Ernie Els flying in an eagle from the rough on the 17th hole and Graeme McDowell putting an approach less than five feet from the pin. Those can be seen if you would be so kind to follow this link.
