The Limerick Summary: 2013 CIMB Classic

Winner: Ryan Moore

Around the wider world of golf: Lee Chang-Woo got an invite to the 2014 Masters by winning the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship; Suzann Pettersen won the Sunrise LPGA Taiwan Championship; Kenny Perry won the AT&T Championship on the Champions Tour; Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano won the 2013 BMW Masters on the ET; Lee-Anne Pace won the Sanya Ladies Open on the LET; if I got the right info, Seung-Hyun Lee won the KB Financial Star Championship, the final major of the year on the KLPGA; and Sakura Yokomine won the Nobuta Group Masters GC Ladies on the JLPGA. (The Constructivist has details on the JLPGA event. I assume he'll have something on the KLPGA event eventually.)

Ryan Moore with trophy

To be honest, before the final round started I thought I might be congratulating Kiradech Aphibarnrat on making it to the PGA Tour in this post. Ah, how quickly things change. Kiradech came up a single shot short of a playoff -- as did Chris Stroud -- and we ended up with a David and Goliath scenario.

A battle at dawn between two warriors. One with power, one with accuracy. The field of battle was soggy. The playoff hole was over 600 yards long. Everything favored Goliath.

But like the original battle, this one didn't last long. Ryan Moore laid his third shot stone dead and, with it, laid Gary Woodland's dreams of a third PGA Tour victory to rest.

It's been a couple of weeks more than a year since Moore's last win -- the 2012 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open -- but it's close enough to call this 2 wins in the last year. Are Moore victories on the horizon? I don't know... but this week's Limerick Summary salutes the latest David to take down a long-hitting adversary:
After seventy-two holes, the score
Didn’t tell us who won. But before
Woodland’s playoff par putt
Could be dropped in the cup,
Ryan’s birdie left us all wanting Moore.
