Webb Simpson: 'I never doubted myself'

Webb Simpson says that he always felt his fourth PGA Tour win was just around the corner despite having to wait 16 months following his US Open victory at Olympic Club.

Shriners Open champion Webb Simpson has said that it was only "a matter of time" before he ended his 16-month wait for a fourth PGA Tour title.

The 28-year-old American stormed to a six-shot victory in Las Vegas to clinch his first title since winning the US Open in June of last year.

Simpson admitted frustration at ending the 2013 season without a win, but said that he felt confident that his game was improving.

"It was a little frustrating," Simpson told the PGA Tour's official website.

"My main goal every year is to get better. I thought I was getting better; I just wasn't in contention enough.

"I never really doubted anything. I just thought it was a matter of time before it happened."

The Shriners Open counts as the second tournament of the 2014 season due to a wraparound.

The next event is the CIMB Classic at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, starting on Thursday.
