LAS VEGAS — Fairmont native William McGirt struggled with his putter on Sunday, but still managed a tie for 28th place in the PGA Tour’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

McGirt, who had entered Sunday’s final round in a tie for fifth place after rounds of 71, 66 and 64 at the TPC Summerlin golf course, cashed a check for $43,500 and picked up 43 FedEx Cup points in the second start of the new season.

McGirt posted on his Facebook page that he “didn’t putt very well” during a final round that included three bogeys and two birdies and a 2-over-par 38 over his final nine holes.

McGirt, who is now the 163rd ranked player in the world, is 47th on the FedEx Cup list.

Webb Simpson, a former U.S. Open champion and a graduate of Wake Forest University, easily won the tournament with a 24-under-par total of 260, 6 strokes ahead of runner-ups Jason Bohn and Ryo Ishikawa.

Simpson won the $1.08 million top prize and 500 FedEx Cup points to move to No. 2 on that list, behind Jimmy Walker.
