The Limerick Summary: 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Winner: Brandt Snedeker

Around the wider world of golf: Su-Hyun Oh won the RACV Ladies Masters, co-sponsored by the LET and ALPG; Lee Janzen won the ACE Group Classic on the Champions Tour; and Andrew Dodt won the True Thailand Classic, co-sponsored by the ET and Asian Tour.

Brandt Snedeker

A funny thing happened on the way to Augusta...

While poor Jim Furyk was left to answer still more questions about why he can't seem to close out 54-hole leads lately, Brandt Snedeker decided to set a tournament record and pretty much lock up visits to all the majors and WGCs.

According to Brandt, that falls under the heading of "being relevant again." After a couple of years that were sidetracked by injury (and apparently a lack of confidence that new coach Butch Harmon has restored), Brandt says he can finally just play golf again without thinking about his swing.

For example, here's a driving tip that Brandt passed on from Butch:
Snedeker said Harmon was "in my ear all day." One of those nuggets Snedeker remembers being told was to tee the ball down and try to hit it low on days like Sunday when hitting fairways is at a premium.

"I did that a lot on the back nine," Snedeker said. "When things got tough and I ... didn't feel like I was swinging great at it, but I was kind of managing it, doing something as simple as that kept the ball in the fairway and kept it in front of me and made me play to my strengths, which is my short game and my putting."
All I know is that if Brandt thinks this kind of play merely makes him "relevant," the Tour should be shaking in their Footjoys and hoping he doesn't become "a force on the course!"

In the meantime, Mr. Relevant receives invites to all the big tournaments this year, more media attention about the Masters than he'll know how to deal with, and of course this week's Limerick Summary:
While Furyk must deal with the elephant
In the room, Brandt again says he’s relevant
‘Cause his plan to get back
To Augusta’s on track.
His relief after winning was evident.
