THE GREENBRIER PARTNERS WITH WEBB SIMPSON,
GOLF'S 2012 U.S. OPEN CHAMPION


White Sulphur Springs, WV - April 18, 2013: The Greenbrier, the historic American resort in the foothills of West Virginia's Allegheny Mountains, announced today that it has named Webb Simpson, winner of the 2012 U.S. Open golf championships, to its team of professional golfers representing the resort.

"I couldn't be more excited to have Webb Simpson, a bright young star on the PGA TOUR who embodies everything that The Greenbrier stands for, represent The Greenbrier," says Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier.  "Webb has brought his family here for all three years of The Greenbrier Classic and has enjoyed all of the amenities that the resort has to offer.  Webb has also played extremely well with two top 10 finishes.  This July, I look forward to watching Webb compete in pursuit of the coveted Springhouse Trophy. I anticipate a long partnership between The Greenbrier and Webb Simpson.  He is an outstanding young man of whom we are all very proud!"

"We had always heard about The Greenbrier's rich history, incredible beauty, and legendary service, but it truly exceeded our expectations," says Webb Simpson.  "And, to now be an ambassador for The Greenbrier and all that it represents is an honor beyond words.  It is the highlight of our tournament year--and my family and I look forward to spending time at The Greenbrier for many years to come."
