Simpson becomes father for a second time

Webb Simpson is a father for the second time.

Simpson's wife, Dowd, gave birth on Saturday to Willow Grace Simpson, according to the Associated Press. The couple had their first child, son James, in 2011.

Simpson will likely return for the season's final major at the PGA Championship from Aug. 9-12 at Kiawah Island in South Carolina.

The North Carolina native skipped The Open Championship and pulled out of this week's RBC Canadian Open in anticipation of their daughter's birth.
