San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - For the fifth time, The Olympic Club produced a surprise U.S. Open champion.
Webb Simpson carded his second straight 2-under 68 on Sunday to come from behind and win the 112th U.S. Open Championship.
Simpson finished at 1-over-par 281 to win by one stroke over two players. He started the weekend tied for 29th, which means he came from farther back than any other champion since 1934.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is not a father, but it sure was his day on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.
Earnhardt Jr. snapped a four-year winless streak in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series by taking Sunday's Quicken Loans 400 at this newly repaved two-mile racetrack. Ironically, his last victory in the series came here in June 2008. His 143-race string of no victories was the sixth-longest stretch between wins in series history.
