The Limerick Summary: 2013 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Winner: Brandt Snedeker

Around the wider world of golf: The Kobra is at it again! 15-year-old amateur Lydia Ko won her third pro event, the ISPS Handa NZ Women’s Open on the LET/ALPG, making her the LET's youngest winner ever; Rocco Mediate won the Allianz Chanpionship, his first event on the Champions Tour; and Richard Sterne won the Joberg Open on the ET/Sunshine Tour.

Brandt Snedeker is clearly out of his mind.

In his five PGA starts this year he's finished 3rd, T23, T2, 2nd, and now a win. (In the last two weeks before this win, only Tiger and Phil beat him.) He's 82-under for those events. Six of his last nine finishes have been Top3s.

And yet he doesn't seem to be any more excited than usual.

He broke the tournament record by one shot with his win at Pebble. He shot 5-under on the first 7 holes Sunday, and easily shot a 7-under final round to win by two. He's going to be #4 in the OWGR this week.

And yet he doesn't seem to be any more excited than usual.

He's got a 700-point lead in the FedExCup race with a current total of 1282 points. Let's put this in perspective, folks: Last year Tiger led entering the four playoff events with 2269 points after 15 events, and at the same point Brandt was 19th with 1194 points after 18 events. This season Brandt Snedeker has earned more FedExCup points in 5 events than he did in 18 events last year! And as if that weren't enough, he's less than 1000 points behind Tiger's total... and Tiger had 3 wins! Two more wins would put Brandt over Tiger's total in half the events!

And yet Brandt doesn't seem to be any more excited than usual!

What else can I say? This week's Limerick Summary salutes the hottest golfer on the planet right now. I'm telling you, he's out of his mind...
Brandt lost out to Tiger and Dustin,
Then last week Phil left him a-lustin’
For someone to stumble.
But Brandt's been too humble;
The boy’s got a game he can trust in!
