Simpson to Represent The Greenbrier
2012 U.S. Open Webb Simpson has been added to the team of professional golfers representing The Greenbrier, the historic resort in the foothills of West Virginia's Allegheny Mountains.
Joining the ranks of The Greenbrier's golf pro emeritus Tom Watson and Kenny Perry - who both play mostly on the Champions Tour, Simpson will represent the resort by displaying The Greenbrier logo on his golf bag while participating in all professional golf tournaments, pro-am golf events and public golf exhibitions.
The Greenbrier - which will host the fourth annual Greenbrier Classic, a PGA Tour event played on the Old White TPC course from July 1-7 - has long been closely associated with notable golfer and figures over the years, including Nick Faldo, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan and Sam Snead, who made The Greenbrier his home for more than 60 years and after whom The Greenbrier Sporting Club's private members-only course is named.
"I couldn't be more excited to have Webb Simpson, a bright young star on the PGA Tour who embodies everything that The Greenbrier stands for, represent The Greenbrier," says Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier.
"Webb has brought his family here for all three years of The Greenbrier Classic and has enjoyed all of the amenities that the resort has to offer. Webb has also played extremely well with two top 10 finishes. This July, I look forward to watching Webb compete in pursuit of the coveted Springhouse Trophy. I anticipate a long partnership between The Greenbrier and Webb Simpson. He is an outstanding young man of whom we are all very proud!"
"We had always heard about The Greenbrier's rich history, incredible beauty, and legendary service, but it truly exceeded our expectations," said Simpson in a press release. "And, to now be an ambassador for The Greenbrier and all that it represents is an honor beyond words. It is the highlight of our tournament year - and my family and I look forward to spending time at The Greenbrier for many years to come."
