Webb Simpson says it never crossed his mind to take the week off after winning the U.S. Open. Simpson took a red-eye flight home to North Carolina from California on Sunday night and was in Connecticut on Wednesday preparing for the Travelers Championship at Cromwell ( noon today on Golf Channel). It’s a tournament he says he feels loyal to after receiving a sponsor exemption in 2008. “I love coming to this town, and I think it’s actually going to be good for me to get back in the ropes and play this week,” Simpson told the larger-than-normal media contingent at TPC River Highlands.
