The Limerick Summary: 2009 Shark Shootout

Winners: Steve Stricker & Jerry Kelly

Maybe Tiger stole the headlines again, but we had another week of really good golf. Robert Allenby won for the second week in a row down in Australia, grabbing his 4th Australian PGA win; Pablo Martin finally broke out of his rut and won the 2010 Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa (that "2010" thing just cracks me up!); and In-kyung Kim won the Dubai Ladies Masters, with Michelle Wie putting in another great 2nd place finish while also posting a high finish at her exams. This is another week that really deserves several limericks, but right now I only promise one... and that is for what I suppose is the last PGA tournament of the year. (Well, I guess I could count the yet-to-be televised Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge, but that was actually played a month ago.)

Today's limerick is for the Shark Shootout, the team event Greg Norman puts on every year. Norman didn't play this year because of shoulder surgery, but that didn't prevent this from being another pretty good event. You gotta love a scramble! The tournament came down to a Kentucky/Wisconsin battle, with Kenny Perry and J.B. Holmes facing off against Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker, and it went right to the last hole. Kelly had dubbed the team "Cheddar & Better" early in the week, and I couldn't let that go unnoticed. In fact, since the whole tournament is just a fun event for charity...
Though Kentucky was long off the tees,
Strick and Kelly drove both to their knees.
But the two are a wreck
‘Cause they can't cash the check:
Seems it's made out to some guy named “Cheese”…
