Simpson takes 2nd PGA title

Webb Simpson

AMERICA’S Webb Simpson has won his second US PGA Tour title in a matter of weeks after a playoff victory over compatriot Chez Reavie at the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship today.

Jason Day tied for third with Luke Donald and Brandt Snedeker while Adam Scott, one of a handful who held the lead during a congested final day, faded to finish eighth.

Geoff Ogilvy made clutch putts on the last two holes to grab 69th spot on the FedEx Cup standings and scrape through to the third playoff event in two weeks. Only the top 70 go through to the BMW Championship in Chicago.

Day is now 6th in the race for the FedEx Cup US$10 million prize purse with Scott 16th.

Also surviving are Aaron Baddeley, Marc Leishman, and Robert Allenby with Greg Chalmers falling by the wayside.
