The Limerick Summary: 2010 Sony Open

Winner: Ryan Palmer

In some ways, Charl Schwartzel was the biggest news this week. His 2nd win in a row down at the Joberg Open in South Africa (by 6 shots, for Pete's sake!) may have secured him a spot in the Masters. Some will say the field wasn't that strong; I say two wins in a row anywhere is a major achievement. Congrats again, Charl!

Over here on our little tour, the Sony Open turned out to be a real competition between Steve Stricker, Robert Allenby, and Ryan Palmer. Stricker blistered the course to post early, then Allenby and Palmer fought it out down the stretch. Palmer had only one Tour win, but Allenby hadn't won on the PGA Tour since 2001. Still, you had to figure he was the guy to beat, since posting two wins last month in Australia and South Africa. I know there will be arguments over whether Allenby folded at the end, but I'm going to give him credit for staying in there as long as he did with that ankle injury.

At any rate, here's this week's summary:
This last month, he’s been used to winning,
But Allenby found his mind spinning.
A sprint came from Stricker,
Then Ryan proved quicker;
With two wins, now Palmer is grinning.
And that's the end of the Aloha Swing. Up next... the West Coast swing!
