The Limerick Summary: 2017 Memorial

Winner: Jason Dufner

Around the wider world of golf: In-Kyung Kim won the ShopRite LPGA Classic on the LPGA; Conrad Shindler won the Rex Hospital Open on the Web.com Tour; Lee McCoy won the Freedom 55 Financial Open on the Mackenzie Tour РPGA TOUR Canada; Curtis Yonke won the Quito Open on the PGA TOUR Latinoam̩rica; Nanna Koerstz Madsen won the Fuccillo Kia Classic of NY on the Symetra Tour; Shaun Norris won the JGT Championship Mori Building Cup Shishido Hills on the Japan Golf Tour; and Renato Paratore won the Nordea Masters on the ET.

Jack congratulates Jason Dufner

I guess almost everybody figured Jason Dufner was out of it after he shot 77 on Saturday and lost his lead at the Memorial.

Almost everybody figured that. Jason Dufner and Jack Nicklaus weren't among them. Jack mentioned his own Sunday morning conversation with Dufner several times during the CBS broadcast, where the two of them agreed that the Duff wasn't out of it by a long shot.

And in the end, it was a long shot -- a 33-foot par putt on the 18th -- that sealed the deal for Jason after a blistering 4-under back nine. That score was made all the more incredible by two suspensions of play due to lightning, delaying the game by nearly three hours total and pushing the finish right to the brink of darkness. That's why the photo above is dark except for the two stars shining in the foreground.

It looks like Jason is finally getting his life back on track after health problems and a divorce. His new lady was there to meet him when he left the 18th, as was Jack Nicklaus. And of course, there's a new Limerick Summary waiting for him as well...
The lightning postponed it till night,
But Dufner still found time to strike!
With the right state of mind
He attacked from behind—
A performance that Jack really liked.
