U.S. Open Champion 2012: Webb Simpson Your Winner, Tiger Woods Drops Out Of Top 20

Webb Simpson won the 2012 U.S. Open after spending a comfortable amount of time in the clubhouse. Simpson came in a few strokes behind going into the final round and looked like he was in deep trouble after bogeying twice early on. But then Simpson birdied three straight holes from the sixth through the eighth holes, then made the crucial birdie on the tenth hole that ended up being the ultimate difference as Jim Furyk stumbled down the stretch and blew the lead.

Tiger Woods had himself a solid Thursday and Friday, but then struggled through the entire weekend and had a +3 on Sunday to fall well behind.
