The Limerick Summary: 2020 TOUR Championship

Winner: Dustin Johnson

Around the wider world of golf: Brett Drewitt won the Lincoln Land Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour; Albert Pistorius won the Canada Life Series at TPC Toronto: Heathlands Course on the MacKenzie Tour; Cooper Musselman won The Invitational at Auburn University Club on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica; John Catlin won the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters on the ET; Kim Kaufman won the Four Winds Invitational on the Symetra Tour; George Coetzee won the Titleist Championship on the Sunshine Tour; Sakura Koiwai won the Golf 5 Ladies Tournament on the JLPGA; and Rikuya Hoshina won the Fujisanki Classic on the Japan Golf Tour (thanks, IC!)

Dustin Johnson with the FedExCup trophy

My Twofer Tuesday picks weren't bad! I had Dustin Johnson (1) and Webb Simpson (T12). Webb came back a little flat after his week off but Dustin handed me another Top5. In fact, I now have two wins in 2020... and DJ is responsible for them both.

  • Top10s: 19 for 46 (9 Top5, 10 other Top10s)
  • Winners: 2 for 23 events

There's not much I can add to what's already been said about DJ's win. In fact, he said he wanted to add the FedExCup to his resume before the end of his career but he ended up adding much more than that.

He now has six Playoff wins, more than anybody. Even more than Tiger.

The TOUR Championship is his 23rd PGA Tour win, meaning there are only 26 players in the history of the game with more wins than him. And we know he's probably not finished yet.

Granted, he only has one major -- the 2016 US Open -- but it's likely he'll get plenty of major chances going forward. He can double this number if he just holds form for another couple of weeks.

I wonder if Brooks sat at home, watching this play out and saying to himself, "Why oh why did I have to say all that stuff to the media...?"

But today my main concern is adding to his Limerick Summary count, so here goes:

His resume keeps wanting more
So DJ posts score after score,
One event at a time,
Just to add one more line—
Now a FedExCup adds to his lore.
