Webb Simpson WITB 2021 – What’s In Simpson’s Bag

Webb Simpson is a 7-time PGA Tour championship who had a mixed bag of a decade between 2010 and 2020.

But the tail-end of the decade saw Simpson not only win two PGA tour championships; it was also the year he climbed back into the top 10 of the World Golf rankings after an 8 year absence.

He has certainly appeared to be turning things around last year but was recently cut from the Players Tournament. Still, everyone is wondering to what clubs he can attribute his recent resurgence and how he will respond to a rocky start to the year.

Caddie – Paul Tesori

Paul Tesori will be on the bag for Simpson this season. Tesori has been a caddie for 17 years and boasts a +2 handicap himself.

He has caddied for other pros such as Sean O’Hare and Jerry Kelly. Back in 1996, Tesori actually qualified for the PGA Tour after just 1 attempt so he’s no slouch himself.
