The Limerick Summary: 2012 CIMB Classic

Winner: Nick Watney

Around the wider world of golf: Suzann Pettersen won the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship; Carlota Ciganda won the China Suzhou Taihu Open on the LET; David Frost won the AT&T Championship on the Champions Tour in a playoff against Bernhard Langer; Peter Hanson won the BMW Masters on the ET (but he's still way behind Rory in the Race to Dubai); Darren Fichardt won the Sun Coast Classic on the Sunshine Tour; and Justin Bolli won the Tour Championship. The Top 25 who get PGA Tour cards was also determined there; Casey Wittenberg took the #1 spot.

Nick picks up win#2 this year

I just don't know what to say. Back before the FedExCup Playoffs we were talking about what a disappointing year Nick Watney was having. Now he's ripped off two wins in as many months... and all he did was shoot a course-record 10-under 61 to squeak out his win in Kuala Lumpur.

My, my, my. How quickly fortunes change in the world of golf... but I guess that shouldn't surprise me anymore, given how many dramatic comebacks we've seen this season.

It's not as if nobody else played well. Tiger shot 63, for Pete's sake, and the best he could muster was a T4. And there were two other scores of 62 in the Top 10 finishers. It's not often that the third-round leaders both shoot 66 and come up short, yet that's exactly what happened to Bo Van Pelt and Robert Garrigus.

I'll just say this: With the WGC-China coming up next week, at least Nick picked a good time to get hot. (That's hot with the clubs, not hot with the weather in Kuala Lumpur. But I guess he did both, huh?)

So this week's Limerick Summary salutes the player who found his lost year before it slipped away entirely. I wonder if he'll have anything left when he faces Rory next week?
Two months back, his game looked quite disjointed;
But Nick's play since that time seems anointed!
He's erratic, that's true;
But I think he'll make do –
With two wins, he can't be disappointed!
