The Limerick Summary: 2016 WGC-Cadillac Championship

Winner: Adam Scott

Around the wider world of golf: Ha Na Jang got her second victory of the year at the HSBC Women's Champions on the LPGA; Stacey Keating won the Brisbane Invitational and Katelyn Must won the BWAC Regional Services ALPG Pro Am, both on the ALPG; and Teresa Lu won the Daikin Orchid Ladies on the JLPGA.

Apparently nobody wanted to win at Doral. I mean, it looked like it was Rory's to win, then it looked like anybody could win... and then the race backwards began. Players would leap to the front of the pack, only to throw it away on the next hole they played.

In the end, Adam Scott decided he'd had enough of the wishy-washiness. After barely missing the water on 18 and leaving a tricky uphill lie in the hazard, he scrambled an up-and-down to lock up the title.

Now in some ways I feel I should cut them all a bit of slack. I don't think anybody was ready for the winds around Doral on Sunday -- when Zach Johnson puts two in the water on the same hole, you know something's up! But Adam Scott made TWO double-bogeys on the front nine and STILL outplayed the field. No one else in the Top10 made even one!

This is two weeks in a row that Adam has made a huge number -- the quad last week, the two doubles this week -- but bounced back with enough birdies to take down his competition. After a three-week run of 2nd-win-win, Adam has made himself a favorite going into Augusta.

And, it seems, he's put to rest all the debate about whether he could play golf without an anchored putter. SPOILER ALERT: He can, and does it very well indeed!

So after the better part of two years without a Limerick Summary, Adam lands his second one in two weeks. The rest of them boys better get their games in gear... and quick!
Seemed nobody wanted to win…

Scared the hazard (but sank not).
It left a steep bank shot
That left him victorious again.
