The Limerick Summary: 2014 Zurich Classic

Winner: Seung-Yul Noh

Around the wider world of golf: There was a lot of golf this weekend! Alexander Levy won the ET's Volvo China Open; Lydia Ko got her first LPGA win as a pro at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic (the Constructivist has details); Marissa Steen won the Symetra Tour's Guardian Retirement Championship at Sara Bay; Anirban Lahiri won the CIMB Niaga Indonesian Masters on the Asian Tour; Andrew Putnam won the Web.com Tour's weather-shortened WNB Golf Classic; Ty Capps won the Roberto De Vicenzo Invitational Copa NEC on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; and Phoebe Yao won the JLPGA's Fujisankei Ladies Classic (the Constructivist also has details on this one).

Noh doubt who won!

He's not just another young player anymore, not just another member of the rank-and-file masses who fill out fields at PGA Tour events. No, Seung-Yul Noh is now a proven winner... and he did it under some really tough conditions.

Not the least of which was having a victory-starved Keegan Bradley breathing down his neck... and Keegan was not only paired with him but managed to tie him for the lead early on. That didn't last for long, however; Keegan went bogey-triple on holes 5 & 6, basically killing his chances.

Noh didn't flinch. He continued to post pars and birdies -- and only 3 bogeys -- with well-planned shots in the heavy winds that slashed TPC Louisiana on Sunday (gusting to 30mph), even when everybody from yet-to-win players like Andrew Svoboda, Robert Streb, and Jeff Overton to veterans like Robert Garrigus made runs at him. In fact, Svoboda and Streb's T2 finishes were their best ever on the Big Tour as well.

But only Noh got the trophy, the perks... and the customary beer shower from Y.E. Yang and Charlie Wi. What perks, you may ask? Well, he'll be at Quail Hollow this week and in THE PLAYERS the week after, for example. But I'm sure such paltry baubles of fame pale beside the knowledge that he has received the greatest reward of all...

This week's highly-coveted Limerick Summary. Congratulations on your win, Seung-Yul!
Though swirling winds started to blow,
They didn’t deter Seung-Yul Noh;
He kept the ball down
As he moved through his round.
He’s no longer just status quo!
