The Limerick Summary: 2014 RBC Heritage

Winner: Matt Kuchar

Around the wider world of golf: Several players returned to the winner's circle this week. Michelle Wie won the LPGA LOTTE Championship; Lee Westwood won the Maybank Malaysian Open on the ET/Asian Tour; Miguel Angel Jimenez won the Greater Gwinnett Championship on the Champions Tour; William Kropp won the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica's 83 Abierto OSDE del Centro; and Minami Katsu won the JLPGA's KKT Cup Vantelin Ladies (the Constructivist has details).

Kuchar holes out!

The streak has ended. Matt Kuchar must be extremely happy.

After 3 weeks -- including the Masters -- where he put himself in position to win and then went flatter than day-old soda, shooting par or worse in the final round, Matt Kuchar blistered the Harbour Town Golf Links with a 64 to lap the field. (And, incidentally, give Luke Donald his 5th Top3 there in 6 years.)

Instead of starting the day with the lead, he started 4 back, he shot a front nine 30 (-5) to take the lead... and then 3-putted the 17th from 4 feet to fall back into a tie with Donald. It looked like he was going to fall prey to "the curse" yet again, especially after he hit his approach to 18 into the front bunker.

Of course, when you hole out from the bunker on 18 to regain the lead, things look a bit different. It meant Donald had to birdie either 17 or 18 to force a playoff and, on those exposed holes and with so much wind, that just wasn't in the cards.

Kuchar now gets a couple of weeks off before heading to THE PLAYERS where he won in 2012. You can bet he's much more eager to get there now!

In the meantime, he can chill out and savor his brand new Limerick Summary:
After three weeks of losing his fizz,
From the bunker Matt played like a whiz.
He popped the ball up,
It dropped in the cup
And now Win Number Seven is his.
