The Limerick Summary: 2010 AT&T National

Winner: Justin Rose

Around the wider world of golf: Miguel Angel Jiménez won the Alstom Open de France, making him the oldest-ever winner of Europe's oldest-ever Parisian golf title; Na Yeon Choi won the Jamie Farr Owens Corning Classic in a 4-way playoff (against 3 Kims, no less!) on the LPGA; Trish Johnson won the LET's Tenerife Ladies Open (thanks to Patricia Hannigan for the scoreboard link); Hyun-Ju Shin won the JLPGA's JMA Engineering Women's Open in a playoff against Chieko Amanuma (the Constructivist has the details); and Larry Mize won the Montreal Championship on the Champions Tour.

Greetings from sunny Savannah! Although I'll be winding my way toward Disneyworld as most of you read this, I posted this while in Georgia after the first leg of our trip straight from North Carolina through South Carolina to the Peach State. (Hmmm... would that be Carolinear motion?)

At any rate, Justin Rose seems to have the linear motion thing figured out -- just go straight for the win from Day One (appropriately capitalized and boldfaced to illustrate its significance). Although I got to see a little of the golf, my friends on this trip don't care for golf at all so I kept up mostly over the Internet. I do know that Rose only needed an even par round to withstand charges by Ryan Moore, Jeff Overton, and Charlie Wi. I also know that Rose had a real up-and-down round, including a bogey-eagle-bogey-bogey stretch at the turn. But a win is a win, pretty or not, and he has now won 2 of his last 3 tournaments... and 2 big tournaments (Memorial and AT&T) at that. Just think... it could have been 3 out of 3 if not for one bad round.

In any case, Justin Rose has to be considered the hottest player on the planet right now... so it's entirely appropriate that this little performance gets him a berth in the Open Championship

I didn't expect Rose to lose his way on the greens this time, so I actually wrote this limerick somewhere on the road in South Carolina:
Rose got his first win, then imploded
The next week—but now he’s reloaded
And thrilled all his backers.
Like July firecrackers,
His sizzling potential’s exploded.
