When you’ve already won a U.S. Open, you can take a little load off and enjoy the week, right? We’re not suggesting Webb Simpson isn’t serious about his play at Oakmont Country Club this week, but someone is definitely serious about their name-pun prank on his locker room name plates.
Each day this week, someone has been coming up with various sports puns around Simpson’s name — and cleverly at that. The puns so far nod to the Pittsburgh Penguins, UFC fighter Connor McGregor, and most recently, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Oh, and throw in a Star Wars reference for good measure.
This isn’t the first time someone at the U.S. Open has had fun at Simpson’s expense…but we’re ok with it.
