The Limerick Summary: Open

After setting a 36-hole record of 122 (back-to-back 61s―9-under on the par 70 course―in the 2nd and 3rd rounds), Troy Matteson ended up in a playoff with Rickie Fowler and Jamie Lovemark. Both youngsters are trying to make enough money to qualify for the Tour without going to Q-School; but despite some lucky breaks, including a shot by Lovemark that went into the lake at 18 and jumped out, neither was able to beat Matteson's great approach shot on the 2nd playoff hole. The win not only catapulted Matteson out of his 131 position on the money list, but gave him a two-year exemption.

A quick shout-out goes to Matt Every, the latest Big Break contestant to earn a card onto either the PGA or LPGA Tour. Other alumnis currently on tour include Kristy McPherson, Jeanne Cho-Hunicke, Becky Lucidi, Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey, and James Nitties. (Did I forget anybody?)

Anyway, here's today's summary:
Troy Matteson twice shot 9-under
And tore the Tour records asunder.
His win ended troubles
With Fall Finish bubbles
And left two Tour youngsters in wonder.
