We begin with the 112th U.S. Open champion.

@webbsimpson1 Thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement. Humbled to win the US Open!! Thankful to God for His grace in my life. #nosleep

Simpson also made light of the bozo who interrupted his 18th-green interview with Bob Costas on NBC.

@webbsimpson1 My new friend.

Paul Tesori, Simpson's caddie, played a big part in getting Simpson to this point.

@_soki_ Thank you to everyone for the amazing tweets with support, prayers, and congratulations. It was an amazing Father's Day!!!!!! #usopenchamp

Graeme McDowell came up one shot short of forcing a playoff.

@Graeme_McDowell Consolation prize #genius

Scott Stallings saw this win coming, and got something out of it. 

@stallingsgolf I need twitter nation to hold @_Soki_ accountable for our conversation before they played yesterday @subway #mealdeal!

Here's some more love for Webb and Paul.

Charles Warren III noticed Mike Davis of the U.S. Golf Association removing the intruder on the 18th green.

@CWarreniii Now we know what Mike Davis is capable of the next time someone complains about course set up. #decked

Finally, Beau Hossler may have not won or even finished as low amateur this week, but he may have snagged a prom date.

@ThePCreamer Beau I will go to prom with you!!!

It's got to be the hat.

@JasonDufner I think maybe Beau got that UT visor from Brandel Chamblee, rocking the old school look.. Great finish in a us open for 17yr old. Boom!
