The Limerick Summary: 2014 Greenbrier Classic

Winner: Angel Cabrera

Around the wider world of golf: I.K. Kim won the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters on the LET; Graeme McDowell successfully defended his title at the ET's Alstom Open de France; Roger Sloan won the Nova Scotia Open on the Web.com Tour; and Yeon-Ju Jung won the Nichi-Iko Ladies on the JLPGA (the Constructivist has details).

Angel Cabrera celebrates eagle on 13

Angel Cabrera has a reputation as a "big game hunter." He shows up at the majors -- his only two PGA Tour wins were the 2007 US Open and the 2009 Masters -- but doesn't seem to get up for the regular events.

Sunday at the Greenbrier Classic he rewrote his history... and probably the way American fans view him. He told CBS that he was designing his schedule around the classic courses in the world and, if his performance at the Old White TPC is any indication, it's a GREAT decision!

After George McNeill ripped through the field to post a 61 and take the early lead -- an amazing performance, given that he found out just before his final round that his sister Michelle was probably going to die from cancer before he got back home (unfortunately, she did -- we're all thinking of you, George) -- and after third-round leader Billy Hurley III stumbled on the second hole and never recovered, Angel went on a tear as impressive as any of his major wins. After a flawless -3 on his front nine, he took the crowd on a roller coaster ride with 2 birdies and then an eagle on the par-4 13th, followed by 2 bogeys and a final birdie to post a final round 64.

It appears that El Pato can win something besides majors after all!

And of course, that makes him eligible for the same regular Limerick Summaries as the rest of the Tour. ¡Felicitaciones, Angel!
With the swing of an Angel (that’s “AHNG-hel”),
Seems Cabrera could do nothing wrong… well,
He missed a few putts,
Threw some bogeys in, but
Down at thirteen, that two was a bombshell!
