Professional Recap

AJGA alumnus Webb Simpson earned his sixth PGA TOUR title on Super Bowl Sunday after defeating Tony Finau in a sudden-death playoff. Simpson began the final round one shot back of Finau and would be two shots back heading to No. 17. He birdied Nos. 17 and 18 to get to 17-under-par 267 and force a playoff. Simpson birdied the first playoff hole to get his first win since the 2018 PLAYERS Championship.

During his AJGA career, Simpson won the 2001 Rolex Tournament of Champions and was a four-time first-team Rolex Junior All-American.

Graeme McDowell earned his first European Tour victory since 2014 after winning the Saudi International by two strokes over AJGA alumnus Dustin Johnson. McDowell began the tournament with a 6-under-par 64 to jump to the top of the leaderboard and an even-par 70 on Sunday earned him the victory.

In addition to Johnson's runner-up finish, AJGA alumnus Phil Mickelson finished tied for third in the event at 9-under-par 271.
