The Limerick Summary: 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational

Winner: Boo Weekley

Around the wider world of golf: Ilhee Lee got her first win at the LPGA Noah's Ark Open -- excuse me, the flood-shortened Pure Silk-Bahamas LPGA Classic; Kohki Idoki (I love that name!) shocked the Champions Tour field by winning the Senior PGA Championship; Matteo Manassero won the BMW PGA Championship on the ET; Holly Clyburn got her first LET win at the Deloitte Ladies Open; Michael Putnam won the Mexico Championship on the Tour; and Rikako Morita won the Chukyo TV Bridgestone Ladies Open on the JLPGA (thanks to the Constructivist for that one).

Boo goes tartan again

Thank God he didn't wear camo this week. I don't think I could have taken that with the tartan!

Of course, you could be excused for believing Boo Weekley had spent the last year in camouflage. He usually wasn't on the leaderboards and often not even playing the weekend. For a man who has been at the top of the ball striking categories for the last few years, that's a real headscratcher.

Nevertheless, he's finally back. After some recent erratic play he stepped up and posted 67-67-66-66 at Colonial this week. I'm sure Matt Kuchar wishes he had picked a different week to reclaim his game, but that's the way it goes sometimes...

Boo's final round shouldn't have been a surprise. Although he's had a couple of bogeys in every round this week (and a double on Friday), he's still finished strong almost every round. After making it out of the Horrible Horseshoe (holes 3, 4 & 5) he chalked up a single bogey before going on a birdie run. Even without his camo, the birdies apparently never saw him coming. (Or maybe he'd just fooled them into thinking he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and that they'd be safe...)

But it's obvious Boo enjoys patterned clothing. In addition to camo, he has two of the Harbour Town tartan jackets and now adds a Colonial tartan. Perhaps he intends to blind his prey... At least we can all be thankful that Pablo Picasso never designed golf jackets.

At any rate, this week's Limerick Summary salutes Boo on his easy-on-the-eyes return to the winner's circle:
Although he wore no camouflage,
Boo’s shooting was not a mirage.
For after he parred through
The Horrible Horseshoe
The birdies fell in a barrage.

  1. Good to see Boo back, in no camo this week. Don't see many guys on tour with graphite shafts in their irons, but Boo isn't scared of them. It looks like he has dedicated time to his game again and will contend more this year!
