CHARLOTTE, N.C. — U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson is a father again.

Simpson's wife, Dowd, gave birth Saturday to daughter Willow Grace.

Simpson's agent, Thomas Parker, said mother and daughter are doing well.

Simpson is expected to return to play at the PGA Championship on Aug. 9-12 at Kiawah Island, S.C. He skipped the Open Championship because of the birth of the couple's second child.
