Webb Simpson won the 2012 US Open, making him yet another American to win on the 2012 PGA Tour. Are American golfers back to being on the top of the golf world?As far as golf goes, there have always been some big-name American associated with the sport, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods. For a few years, many of the winners were coming from overseas competition, but 2012 seems to offer a return to greatness for the American golfer. Webb Simpson has certainly done his part to help the cause .

The top five golfers on the PGA Tour right now are all Americans — Jason Dufner, Hunter Mahan, Tiger Woods, Zach Johnson and Bubba Watson. You have to go all the back to April to find a tournament that an American didn’t win. Their names may not ‘Tiger’, but the world should watch out for the USA again.
