Golf: Webb Simpson wins Las Vegas

Webb Simpson cruised to victory today at TPC Summerlin, pulling away for a six-stroke win in the second event of the PGA Tour's new wraparound season.

Winning for the first time since the 2012 U.S. Open, Simpson closed with a 5-under 66 in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He finished at 24-under 260 after opening with rounds of 84, 63 and 67 to take a four-stroke lead into the final round.

Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Bohn finished equal second. Ishikawa, the Japanese player who had to play the Web.com Tour Finals to regain his PGA Tour card, shot a 65. Bohn had a 66.
