The Limerick Summary: 2011 JBWere Masters

Winner: Ian Poulter

Around the wider world of golf: Lee Westwood got a win at the Thailand Golf Championship on the Asian Tour, and Lexi Thompson got her second win of the year at the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters on the LET.

Poulter gets his second win of the year

What can I say? Poulter played better than anybody else. (Or is that plaid better than anybody else? I'm never quite sure...)

The story coming in at the JBWere Masters was that Greg Chalmers just might grab the Aussie Triple Crown -- the Australian Open, PGA, and Masters all in one year.

After the third round, the story was Geoff Ogilvy's sparkling 63 to take the lead and maybe redeem an otherwise ho-hum year. In fact, I wrote about that a couple of days ago.

But then Santa showed up in a plaid sleigh drawn by eight wallabies, slapped a shrimp on Poulter's barbie, and started throwing a BYOT (bring your own trophy) Christmas party!

From being 3 back starting the fouth round to 3 ahead at the end, Ian Poulter probably feels as if Santa paid him an unexpected visit. Although he had won the Volvo World Match Play Championship back in May, he seemed a bit disappointed with his year until he picked up that Australian Masters trophy this weekend. Now he's sitting on a two-win season, which is a success by anybody's measure, plus he jumped 8 spots to #20 in the OWGR.

Ho, ho, ho indeed. Not that I think his joy will last long -- Ian's a bit greedy for wins, you know -- but he's got one hell of a new Christmas ornament for his tree.

So today's Limerick Summary pays tribute to a little English boy who was good enough to grab one last title before Christmas. We'll have to wait and see if Santa also brings him a nice shiny 2012 season:
That final-round charge staged by Ian
Is something we haven't been seein'
For most of the year.
The form he found here
Might cheer him up for the time bein'.
