Caddie staying out of member Simpson's way


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Webb Simpson and Paul Tesori are one of the PGA Tour’s most endearing tandems, but it wasn’t always that way.

Tesori began working for Simpson in 2011, but prior to that he caddied for Vijay Singh and Sean O’Hair and was on the bag during those players’ victories at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2005 and 2009, respectively.

Still, Quail Hollow is Simpson’s home course and Tesori said he’s deferred to his boss’ local knowledge this week.

“I stay out of his way a lot more here then anywhere else. Maybe I should start doing that more” Tesori joked.

Simpson carded his second-consecutive 67 on Friday at the Wells Fargo Championship for a share of the second-round lead alongside Robert Streb at 10 under par.
