The Limerick Summary: 2019 Australian PGA Championship

Winner: Adam Scott

Around the wider world of golf: To the best of my knowledge, this event was the last one of the year. [UPDATE: I forgot that Jazz Janewattananond won the Thailand Masters.]

Adam Scott lifts the Australian PGA trophy

It's shocking but it happened! In the last event of 2019, my Twofer Tuesday picks got the job done. I had Adam Scott (1) to win and Cameron Smith (T10) to Top10. It's a major accomplishment for me this year, and I'd like to thank both men for finishing my year with a bang!
  • Winners: 4 for 50
  • Place well (Top10): 22 for 50 (13 Top5s, 9 more Top10s)
  • Overall Top10s: 41 of 100 (25 Top5s, 16 more Top10s)
Of course, Adam Scott made the biggest bang of the bunch. His last minute charge in the final round, beginning with the birdie-eagle combo on 14 and 15 that gave him the lead for good over Michael Hendry. And while Hendry turned out to be Adam's major challenge, he certainly wasn't the only golfer to make a play for the trophy.

I think this is a huge win for Adam, especially going into 2020. He hadn't won on the European or PGA Tours since 2016, the Australasian Tour since 2013 or the Asian Tour since 2010. To get this win -- especially a major on the Australasian Tour -- right on the tails of his solid Presidents Cup play can only be an encouragement to him.

And he'll have the holidays to let this victory simmer in his mind, perhaps erupting into a boil of possibilities in time for his first event in 2020.

In the meantime, I'll give him this Limerick Summary -- the last one of 2019, by the way -- as a gift, in hopes that it'll make the season a bit brighter around the Scott household.
The end of the calendar year
Sees Adam with reason to cheer.
Though he went through a drought,
Seems he worked his way out
With a win that’s especially dear.
