The Limerick Summary: 2017 WGC-Bridgestone

Winner: Hideki Matsuyama

Around the wider world of golf: In-Kyung Kim finally got her first major at the RICOH Women's British Open on the LPGA/LET; Brittany Marchand won the PHC Classic on the Symetra Tour; Paul Goydos won the 3M Championship on the Champions Tour; Chris Stroud won the Barracuda Championship, the alternate event on the PGA Tour; Martin Piller won the Ellie Mae Classic on the Tour; Patrick Newcomb won the Syncrude Oil Country Championship on the Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada; and Norman Xiong won the Western Amateur.

In the end, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational was pretty boring. I mean, don't get me wrong -- it's always cool to see someone shoot a 61 to win a tournament.

You'd just like to see the rest of the field make a game out of it, you know?

We all know that Hideki Matsuyama has a tendency to go off on these streaks where he shoots unbelievable score after unbelievable score. The last time came last year, when he won five times in nine weeks, or some ridiculous number like that.

The Tour should probably be worried. That streak included a WGC win, but it didn't start until after the PGA Championship. This time, however, the PGA is squarely in Hideki's sights!

There's really not much more to say. Hideki's game is in good enough shape to win a major, and he finished T4 at the PGA last year. My Japanese isn't very good, Hideki, but everybody understands what a Limerick Summary means... and you just might be on the verge of another, much more impressive one.
What more can we say? Matsuyama
Left everyone crying for mama!
He shot 16-under—
The field watched in wonder
As he stole the tournament’s drama.
