The Limerick Summary: 2009 Chevron World Challenge

Winner: Jim Furyk

There was so much good golf this weekend, what with Robert Allenby becoming the first Aussie to win the Nedbank and Adam Scott's impressive return to the winner's circle at the Australian Open, not to mention the PGA and LPGA Q-Schools (which are still going on), that I may do several days of limericks this week!

Of course, the official Monday limerick had to be the Chevron. Jim Furyk broke a two-year winless drought (way to go, Jim!) by surviving last minute runs by Lee Westwood and Graeme McDowell. (And congrats to Graeme for pretty much guaranteeing his way into the Masters!) Unfortunately, while I've avoided Tailgate as much as possible this week, there's no way I could summarize this tournament without referring to Tiger. Hopefully this will be clever enough that it won't seem to be trivializing what's happened:
A late-season problem with driving
Kept Tiger from even arriving.
A vict’ry for him,
Unlike our man Jim,
Won’t be just a case of surviving.
