The Limerick Summary: 2015 Wells Fargo Championship

Winner: Rory McIlroy

Around the wider world of golf: Jeff Maggert won the Regions Tradition, the first Champions Tour major of the year; Rod Pampling won the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour; Justin Hueber won the 57 Abierto Mexicano de Golf on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; Shih Chang Chan won the The Eternal Courtyard Open on the PGA Tour China; James Morrison won the Open de España on the ET; Jimin Kang won the Mission Health Wellness Classic on the Symetra Tour; and Bo-Mee Lee won the Hoken No Madoguchi Ladies on the JLPGA (bangkokbobby has details).

The LPGA event, the Kingsmill Championship, was weather-delayed and will be completed this morning (live on GC at 7am ET) [MONDAY UPDATE: Minjee Lee won]; and the LET event, the Turkish Airlines Ladies Open, runs from Sunday thru Wednesday this week (second round coverage is live today on GC at 8am ET, although the LPGA playoff may delay that).


Seriously... isn't this getting just a bit crazy? All Rory did at Quail Hollow was set half a dozen tournament records -- and move ahead of Gary Player for most PGA Tour wins before the age of 30 -- with his 11th PGA Tour win Sunday.

The two lowest rounds of his career have both come at this event, and the 61 on Saturday was the lowest of all. He broke the tournament records for low score by 5 shots (both relative-to-par and aggregate, -21 / 267), most birdies in a round (11), most birdies in a row (5), biggest margin of victory (7), and most drives over 300 yards since 2010 when he first won (I think it was 181). He became the only multiple winner of the event and even tied the back-9 scoring record (-6), just for good measure.

And now he gets his 11th Limerick Summary as well. I don't care what Rory says, I think Jordan and Rickie "got his dander up" a bit (as we say down here in the South):
A message, perhaps? Some will wonder
If, as Rory tore this field asunder,
He was taunting the rest
That they can’t beat his best
Unless he makes some dimwitted blunder?
