PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla.

270-Webb Simpson 66-63-68-73. I felt good on basically every facet of the game.

And yet, his success with the anchored putting stroke helped hasten its demise. Golf's governing bodies became concerned - and voila, such a method went the way of the gutta percha golf ball.

He is a lovely player but one of the unfortunate ones who started his career with the belly putter when it was legal.

Simpson took home $1.98 million for his victory; only the U.S. Open pays more.

Rejuvenated Webb Simpson deserves all the plaudits and headlines he is receiving after holding his nerve to post a dominant victory at The Players Championship on Sunday. Eleven putts for the first nine holes did not hurt either.

"What I saw this weekend makes me excited".

Simpson played steady despite all the challenges that came his way. Woods will likely make his next start at the Memorial Tournament in a few weeks.

"I know that Romelu will be back for Tuesday because he's in the last week [of rehabilitation] and we have to see but Anthony I have no more".

Yet the short putter was doing him no favors. "I feel like this is my first win", he said, reflecting on his fourth and most recent victory, the 2013 Shriners Hospital for Children Open.

"Eventually I was going to put all the pieces together and today, for the most part, I did that", he said. So it made working hard that much harder. He kept me in other sports. "I don't know, where is he at?" "And I'm glad I did".

What's this win mean for Simpson?

Simpson is the ninth player to win both a U.S. Open and a Players title, joining Tiger Woods, Germany's Martin Kaymer, Lee Janzen, Tom Kite, Raymond Floyd, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Jerry Pate. He, too, has struggled with adapting since the rule change. If this version of Tiger is posting those numbers off the tee, he's going to win multiple tournaments throughout the rest of 2018.

Get breaking news alerts. Like Matt Kuchar, he also putts the shaft up against his left forearm. "I hit it good all day long, and it's just the way it goes". "I'm very thankful he gave me that lesson". Of course after five years and so many ups and downs, all Simpson cares about is walking away with that trophy any way he can get it. Grade: A+. He was more consistent. Four was the closest any one, including Lee and Woods would come. Four-time Major victor McIlroy is going to be one of the all-time greats but he misses cuts like anyone else, which Tiger did not do.

Oh, and you know that annoying, worn-out one-liner that's always been muttered on every single golf course across the world? He would have been pushing the top 50 with a second-place finish. 'I've said for a while that I've got my feel for tournament golf back and today I made some putts as well. Had tons of conversations with those guys.

The 14-time major victor fell a few feet short of providing the first real drama Sunday on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. And he's got a system that now works. "I never doubted myself, but at the same time, that's a long time".

"I played so well this weekend; unfortunately, I just didn't cash in", said Woods, who performed much better with the driver on the weekend, missing only a handful of fairways.
