The Limerick Summary: 2013 Memorial Tournament

Winner: Matt Kuchar

Around the wider world of golf: Karrie Webb won the ShopRite LPGA Classic; Russ Cochran won the Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour; Mikko Ilonen won the Nordea Masters on the ET; Carlota Ciganda won the UniCredit Ladies German Open on the LET; Michael Putnam won the Mid-Atlantic Championship on the Web.com Tour; Ryan Blaum won the Dominican Republic Open on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; and Mamiko Higa won the Resort Trust Ladies on the JLPGA. (Thanks to the Constructivist for that update.)

Ho hum. Matt Kuchar just became the second PGA Tour player to win more than once this season. The other, of course, was Tiger Woods, who took this week off while preparing for the U.S. Open. (What? He was AT the Memorial? Just didn't play well, huh? Ho hum.)

Why do I say, "ho hum"? Because Matt just took the teeth out of a tough course without any drama at all. Other players went for the big shots, the impressive plays, the go-for-broke recovery shots... and came nowhere close to Matt's boring little 4-under round under tough conditions. He missed one fairway, folks. ONE FAIRWAY!

Ho hum.

In fact, the only real excitement came AFTER the round. Matt's son Carson was giving Jack Nicklaus the high-five as Matt finished up on 18, then the whole Kuchar family rushed the conquering hero. I feel safe saying that the party celebrating Matt's first-ever multiple-win season will be anything but ho-hum!

So this week's Limerick Summary salutes one of the most boring dominators on Tour -- a player who has bored his way right to the front of my favorites for the Open in a couple of weeks:
Going forward, the field may be traumatized
By the way Matt’s good play was just dramatized.
But his first two-win season
Gives him one monster reason
For a party that’s “two boys and Mama”-sized!
