The Limerick Summary: 2015 Greenbrier Classic

Winner: Danny Lee

Around the wider world of golf: Bernd Wiesberger won the Alstom Open de France on the ET; Beth Allen won the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters on the LET; Daniela Iacobelli won the Tullymore Classic on the Symetra Tour; Abraham Ancer won the Nova Scotia Open on the Tour; and Michael Letzig won the SIGA Dakota Dunes Open on the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada.

And in case you missed it, the US Women's Soccer Team won their 3rd World Cup title in record-breaking fashion.  GO USA!

And all Danny could say was, "Wow."

It was a very understated way to tell what his first PGA Tour win meant to him, but it suited him very well. Danny Lee won the 2008 US Amateur, he won the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic on the ET as an amateur, and he won the 2011 WNB Golf Classic on the Tour as a pro. In all of that he has remained a very calm, reserved young man.

In a week where Tiger Woods finally started putting his game back together when everybody could see it, where Robert Streb nearly made history by winning an event putting with a sand wedge, and where the event he played has a history that says the likely winner won't come from the last group, Danny Lee calmly went into a 4-man playoff and grabbed the win like an experienced pro.


He's scheduled to play the John Deere this week, which will be his 22nd start of the year -- 28th of the wraparound season -- and then head off to the Open Championship, only his second major start as a pro. But he made it clear that what drives him right now is a desire to be on the Presidents Cup team when it goes to Korea later this year, and he hoped a win might get him on Captain Nick Price's radar.

Personally, I can't believe Price would be deaf enough to ignore him now. Danny may not be very outspoken but his clubs scream for attention!

You got my attention, Danny. And as a result, here's your first-ever Limerick Summary. Hopefully it's the first of many:
His twenty-first start of the year
Gave Danny Lee reason to cheer.
And the Open spot’s nice…
But a pick from Nick Price
Is what drives him. So, Nick—did you hear?
