The Limerick Summary: 2013 Zurich Classic

Winner: Billy Horschel

Around the wider world of golf: Inbee Park showed why she's #1 on the Rolex by winning the North Texas LPGA Shootout for her third victory this year; Brett Rumford won the Ballantine's Championship on the ET; Brad Faxon and Jeff Sluman won the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf on the Champions Tour (Ian Baker-Finch and Bart Bryant won the Raphael Division); and Will Wilcox won the South Georgia Classic on the Tour.

Horschel excited

The Tour continued to have weather problems this week as the final round of the Zurich Classic stopped and started and stopped and started due to storms. Appropriately enough, Billy Horschel stormed the course, posting a 64 in his final round and draining a long putt on the 18th to seal the deal.

Of course, the Florida Gator had shown his kinship with the wildlife living on the TPC Louisiana all week. He ate up the course with 26 birdies in his four rounds (and he managed to keep 20 of them down -- important when you're near a culinary center like New Orleans). As you can tell from the photo, that last birdie was particularly spicy!

Only D.A. Points was able to hang with him, finishing one back. Points noted that Horschel had finished one back of him when Points won at Houston a few weeks back. The fact is, Horschel has been all around the lead lately. His last four tournaments are T2, T3, T9, and 1, and he also leads the Tour in consecutive made cuts with 23.

Sure sounds like one hungry Florida Gator to me!

So this week's Limerick Summary salutes the newest first-time winner on Tour -- who, it seems, is right at home with the native wildlife down in the biyou:
Though real gators lay there in wait,
Young Billy decided to sate
His hunger for birdies
(He ate nearly thirty!)
And cleaned out the Pelican State.
The photo came from the front page of And some of the facts came from this wrap-up report.
