The Limerick Summary: 2010 Valero Texas Open

Winner: Adam Scott

Around the very busy and very soggy world of golf: Laura Davies won the LET's UniCredit Ladies German Open and Sakura Yokomine won the JLPGA's Fundokin Ladies (thanks to the Constructivist for those updates), Peter Hanson won the ET's Iberdrola Open Cala Millor Mallorca, Justin Hicks won the Nationwide's BMW Charity Pro-Am, Dan Forsman blitzed the Champions Tour at the Regions Charity Classic, and Se Ri Pak won a 3-hole playoff at the rain-shortened Bell Micro LPGA Classic. (You can get a full recap of that event here at HoundDog's place.) I think that covers most of the bigger tours.

Adam Scott's nerves apparently got the better of him in San Antonio. After nearly flawless play all day, he pulled a par putt to bogey his final hole. I'm not going to judge him too harshly for that, given that he shot 66-67 in a marathon 36-hole day on a long rain-soaked course. That's still about as good a day as anybody could expect.

However, it did open the door for a few players to catch him -- primarily FreddieYac (Fredrik Jacobson), who played as well as I can remember in quite a while. Still, he came up one short, leaving Adam with his first win in a couple of years... and maybe an indication that he's finally found whatever it was he lost a few years ago. Except for that last hole, he played as rock-solid as ever. He'll bear watching the rest of the year, to see if he can back it up with some more good finishes.

So here's this week's waterlogged limerick:
He conquered the rain and the lightning
But yipped as his throat started tightening!
In spite of the blunder,
The man from down under
Showed signs that his future is brightening.

  1. Yeah. 66-67 = Lights Out!
