The Limerick Summary: 2015 Hero World Challenge

Winner: Bubba Watson

Around the wider world of golf: Sergio Garcia won the inaugural Ho Tram Open on the Asian Tour; Marc Leishman won the Nedbank Golf Challenge, co-sanctioned by the Australasian Tour and ET; Nathan Holman won the Australian PGA Championship, also on the ET; Japan won The Queens, a new match play tournament between the LET, KLPGA, JLPGA and ALPG; Simin Feng was the medalist at LPGA Q-School; and Ryo Ishikawa won the Golf Nippon Series JT Cup on the Japan Golf Tour.

He didn't even plan to play because he didn't have a passport for new daughter Dakota. I guess it's a good thing his wife Angie didn't accept that as an answer.

For somebody who said early in the week that the Albany Golf Club course didn't fit his eye, Bubba certainly had no problem finding the hole. And finding the hole again. And again. And yet again. Rinse and repeat. There's a clear pattern here.

Bubba, my friend, PLEASE listen to me: Perhaps you should stop thinking so much. If this course didn't fit your eye, and yet you stomped 17 of the best players in the world, perhaps it isn't important whether the course fits your eye or not.

After all, you didn't make a single bogey all weekend until the final hole. You went all Godzilla on your buddies and stomped the field like it was a model of Tokyo. S-T-O-M-P-E-D, as in left little greasy spots where PGA pros once stood.

There's no other way to put it. You were AWESOME. On a course that didn't fit your eye.

Perhaps you should just go out and play, without any expectations, then see how you did once the week ends. Maybe your initial impressions of the courses you play aren't particularly accurate. Perhaps you should give these courses a chance before you decide they aren't your cup of tea. Or grilled cheese sandwich, if you prefer.

I'm just saying...

And in the meantime, you can print off a copy of your newest Limerick Summary, which I think fits my eye well enough for the both of us:
Throughout twenty-fifteen we’ve seldom
Seen one Bubba round quite so well done.
He chipped, drove and putted
And left the field gutted.
The Bubba Show’s done now. You’re welcome.
