Q. Why would you come out to the middle of the ocean for one week (to compete in the Sony Open in Hawaii)?
WEBB SIMPSON: That's a good question. This (Hawaii) is really far from Charlotte, NC. I realized that when I got off the plane in Phoenix, I'm not even halfway there.
I love it here. I have great memories here. And it (Waialae) is a golf course that if I put top five favorite courses for me and my game, this would be one of them. It's short, it's tight, we have doglegs, we have wind, I love bermuda greens. It's a trip worth taking.
*Out of his 11 starts at the Sony Open in Hawaii, PGA TOUR pro Webb Simpson has made every cut and finished in the Top-20 in eight of those appearances. Simpson had three Top-5 finishes in the last three years he's competed at Waialae (T4 in 2018, 3rd in 2020 and T4 in 2021).
