The Limerick Summary: Children's Miracle Network Classic

Winner: Stephen Ames

It feels a little strange doing this week's limerick. I realize that the Disney tournament was make or break for a lot of dreamers on Tour... I realize that Tiger made big news by winning the JBWere Masters in Australia... I realize that Rory McIlroy took over the top spot in the Race to Dubai with only next week's championship left.

Still, I can't help but feel that the biggest news this week was Michelle Wie getting her first win at the LPGA Lorena Ochoa Invitational. She did it on a bum ankle, no less! And after several wayward shots that easily could have put her out of the tournament, as well as pressure from a group of hard-charging veteran players, she finished out in style with a world-class bunker shot that left her a tap-in for the win. The reception she got from her Solheim Cup teammates on the green afterward showed just how popular this win will be with the Tour. A big shout-out to Michelle for breaking through!

Now that she's won her first tournament, I suppose (just like in the commercials) she'll be headed for Disney...

Which is the subject of this week's limerick. (Smooth segueway, huh?)

Anyway, after bubble boy David Duval (among others) failed to make the cut, ending their hopes of retaining their cards without a trip to Q-School, several players managed to get the job done. Ricky Barnes and Rich Beem both held on, among others. But in the end, it came down to a playoff between three guys whose cards were never in doubt - George McNeill, Justin Leonard, and Stephen Ames. Ames went par, par for the win.
The Miracle Network does magic
For children whose lives could be tragic.
Here’s a fitting conceit:
Stephen Ames’s win was sweet
While some others found Disney ellagic.
(I'll spare you the trip to the dictionary. Ellagic means bitter. See, limericks are educational, too!)
