The Limerick Summary: 2010 West Coast Swing, Complete

(Just a reminder: There is no limerick for the 2010 Mayakoba Golf Classic, won by Cameron Beckman, because it's an alternate event and not an official part of the West Coast Swing. But you still get mentioned, Cam -- congratulations!)

2010 Bob Hope Classic
Winner: Bill Haas
Haas and Clark, Watson and Kuchar –
Of these four, which three got the blucher?
On eighteen, a birdie
Put Haas minus thirty
And now he’s a first-trophy smoocher.

2010 Farmers Insurance Open
Winner: Ben Crane
It sounds like a Mike Myers movie:
Will Phil be a square, or just groovy?
While some traded glowers,
Ben Crane showed his powers
And burned all the others like UV.

2010 Northern Trust Open
Winner: Steve Stricker
While grooves cause the others to bicker,
They don’t seem to bother Steve Stricker.
His spin on competing?
Leave no room for cheating…
Or even for hope. Not a flicker.

2010 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am
Winner: Dustin Johnson
Celebrity players were lustin’
For the leading man’s role, played by Dustin.
When you crush it a mile,
You just wave and you smile…
And you win the award for ball-bustin’.

2010 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship
Winner: Ian Poulter
Internationals turned gladiatorial
As they gave the U.S. a tutorial
About playing to win –
And then Poulter chimed in
That the true victor’s prize is sartorial!

2010 Waste Management Phoenix Open
Winner: Hunter Mahan
Hunter’s thirst for a win wasn’t bigger
Than the thirst at 16. See, I figger
Once they drained all the beer,
With no players to jeer
All the fans hit the bars for a jigger.
