Rose congratulates Lingmerth

David Lingmerth has been in a couple of playoffs before -- one on the PGA Tour and one on the Tour. He lost them both.

Not so on Sunday. Many players got into contention then fell away when mistakes got the better of them, but Lingmerth wasn't one of them. Starting the day with a 3-stroke deficit at Jack's Place, he steadily worked his way up the leaderboard with a 3-under 69 to tie Justin Rose, the favorite pick for many this week.

Rose was going for his 2nd win in 5 starts but struggled to find any consistency Sunday. It was his scrambling that kept him in the game but even then, the best he could manage was a par round. The two men found themselves in a playoff, and Rose hoped that his short game would take him just a little farther.

Alas, it was not meant to be. On the third playoff hole Rose put his ball behind a tree where not even his sharp short game could help him. But their 3-hole playoff was the longest in Memorial history... and it ended Lingmerth's playoff woes.

Welcome to the Limerick Summary Winner's Circle, David Lingmerth! I think you'll find this award just as rewarding as your first PGA Tour win! Okay, maybe not...
He took only three holes at Jack’s
To stop Justin Rose in his tracks.
It’s appropriate. Why?
It was Lingmerth’s third try
At the big win he no longer lacks.
