The Limerick Summary: 2015 RBC Heritage

Winner: Jim Furyk

Around the wider world of golf: Weather and playoffs wreaked havoc with the golf this weekend. Olin Browne won the rain-shortened Greater Gwinnett Championship on the Champions Tour; Tommy Cocha won the 84 Abierto OSDE del Centro on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; Wes Roach won the El Bosque Mexico Championship on the Tour; Kiradech Aphibarnrat won the Shenzhen International in a playoff on the ET; Sei Young Kim won the LOTTE Championship in a playoff on the LPGA; Augusta James won the Chico’s Patty Berg Memorial on the Symetra Tour; and Erika Kikuchi won the KKT Cup Vantelin Ladies Open on the JLPGA (bangkokbobby has the details).

BTW, Jordan Spieth did get to the American Country Music Awards. He helped present one of the awards to singer Miranda Lambert.

Jim Furyk celebrates on second playoff hole

Well, if you doubted how hard it is to win on the PGA Tour, now you have proof.

All Jim Furyk had to do was shoot 63 -- 9 birdies and one bogey -- in regulation and then birdie two playoff holes to beat Kevin Kisner and finally break that 4.5 year stretch since his last win. That's all -- eleven birdies in 20 holes.

Since that last win -- the 2010 Tour Championship -- Jim has made 99 starts. He's had nine 54-hole leads (and hasn't closed out any of those, mostly because he ran into tough competition), 7 runner-up finishes, and 15 Top5s. We can talk about how he struggles on Sundays...

But wouldn't you struggle if 63 wasn't good enough to get it done?

Well, Jim's struggles are over. (For this week at least.) Now the work begins on getting the next win. But in the meantime, Jim can take a breath and enjoy his Limerick Summary -- it's been 4.5 years since he had one of those as well!
After four-and-a-half years of knocking,
Furyk’s win set the whole golf world talking!
First a 63 score
And then two birdies more—
Competition’s so stiff that it’s shocking!
