The Limerick Summary: The BMW Championship

Wow, what a surprise…

After weeks of criticism from the media about how he was in a bad state of mind and playing conservatively, Tiger Woods finally pounced back into the winner’s circle with a dominating performance. This is his 71st win and 6th of the year, so it will probably lock up Player of the Year honors… maybe even Comeback Player of the Year, who knows? So it’s fitting that his summary be somewhat more defiant than most:
Well, at last, the Big Cat crashed the buffet!
And his manners were horribly gruff, eh?
After fasting for weeks,
He devoured the golf geeks
Of whose prattle he’d had quite enoughet.
For those of you keeping score, Sergio moved up in the FedEx standings but fell short of the Top 30 by 8 spots. Maybe now he can take a little time off from golf to get his competitive juices flowing again. We won’t talk about Brandt Snedeker’s momentary brain fart on 18 at all; that kind of thing happens to all of us.

And since the point system guarantees that any Top 5 player who wins the Tour Championship is guaranteed to win the FedEx Cup, here are your most likely winners:
  1. Tiger Woods
  2. Steve Stricker
  3. Jim Furyk
  4. Zack Johnson
  5. Heath Slocum
Lastly, since there’s no PGA tourney this week, I can watch the ladies play the Samsung World Championship (at Torrey Pines, no less!) without the slightest feeling of guilt.
