The Limerick Summary: 2013 OHL Classic at Mayakoba

Winner: Harris English

Around the wider world of golf: Lexi Thompson got her second LPGA win in four events at the Lorena Ochoa Invitational; Henrik Stenson became the first man to win both the FedExCup and Race to Dubai by winning the DP World Tour Championship on the ET; Adam Scott successfully defended his Talisker Masters title on the Australasian Tour, giving him a shot at winning the Australian Triple Crown in a single year; Liang Wen-chong won the Resorts World Manila Masters on the Asian Tour; and Sakura Yokomine won the Ito-En Ladies on the JLPGA (the Constructivist has details). Oh, and Inbee Park locked up the LPGA POY race when she beat Suzann Pettersen by one stroke.

Harris English

It was Harris English's first time in Mayakoba, and he stayed in a place called Playa. Am I the only person who finds this somewhat amusing?

Harry tied the final round low score with a 6-under 65. It was enough to win by 4 strokes. And paired with his win at the St. Jude back in June, he joins Rory McIlroy as the only 2 active players under the age of 25 with multiple PGA Tour wins. A playa indeed!

And he did it on a course that got 4 inches of rain in just 3 days (Wed-Fri) and was plagued by rain delays and long days. It certainly puts him in a good frame of mind to end this stretch of the 2013-14 wraparound season. I guess it will be a green Christmas (as in $$$$ green) for Harry this year.

In the meantime, I'll give him an early Christmas present of my own -- his second Limerick Summary of the year. I don't give out many of those, so I hope you appreciate it, Harry!
Harry thought getting one win was nice
But he wondered, “Can I do it twice?”
So he ran the field over
In wet Mayakoba.
Now he wonders… “Can I do it thrice?”
