Simpson skips Firestone, awaits birth of second child



U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson has opted to skip next week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

Simpson never committed to the event at Firestone C.C. in Akron. The deadline to enter the tournament was at 5 p.m. on Friday.

The North Carolina native withdrew from this week's RBC Canadian Open.



The world No. 5 chose not to play in last week's British Open, instead remaining in the United States with his wife, Dowd, awaiting the birth of their second child. Simpson also threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a New York Yankee game last week.
