The Limerick Summary: 2015 TOUR Championship

Winner: Jordan Spieth

Around the wider world of golf: Andrew Loupe won the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship on the Web.com Tour; Esteban Toledo won the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach on the Champions Tour; Alex Rocha won the Aberto do Brasil on the PGA TOUR LatinoamĂ©rica; Bryden Macpherson won the Cadillac Championship on the PGA TOUR China; CĂ©line Herbin won the Lacoste Ladies Open de France on the LET; Jackie Stoelting won the Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout on the Symetra Tour; K.T. Kim won the Asia-Pacific Open Mitsubishi Diamond Cup on the Asian Tour; Thongchai Jaidee won the Porsche European Open on the ET; and Junko Omote won the Miyagi TV Cup Dunlop Women’s Open (bangkokbobby has details). 

Jordan Spieth with both trophies

What can I say? Jordan did it again, and in his familiar unbelievable fashion.

He only shot a -1 round on Sunday, but it was enough. The guys close enough to challenge, like Henrik Stenson, couldn't get it done; and the guys who put together a run were ultimately too far back to really make a challenge.

Perhaps I can try to put Jordan's season in perspective in a later post, but I can sum up the season pretty simply:
  • 7 worldwide wins (don't forget the Australian Open and Hero World Challenge -- they were wins, whether they were official or not)
  • 2 majors -- the Masters and the US Open
  • Top4s in all four majors
  • Youngest to win THE TOUR Championship and the FedExCup
  • Broke the single-season money record -- something over $12mil
  • Finishes the season as #1 in the OWGR
What more can I say? Just this: "Jordan, here's your latest Limerick Summary."
It’s official—he came out on top.
The debates about Jordan can stop.
Beat’em all, won the Cup,
Snapped the POY up…
And to World Number One he’ll soon hop.
