The Limerick Summary: 2017 Indonesian Masters

Winner: Justin Rose

Around the wider world of golf: Angel Cabrera and his son Angelito won the PNC Father/Son Challenge.

Justin Rose with Indonesian Masters trophy

The last big tournament of the year, and what do I do? Get my numbers wrong. In yesterday's post I said that, if Justin Rose won, the Indonesian Masters would be his third win in seven starts.

It actually only took him six starts. Furthermore, he won by an amazing eight strokes, which Rose said was the biggest winning margin of his career. And if that wasn't enough, he won wire-to-wire in an event that was plagued by weather delays. (There were two in the final round alone.)

I really don't have words to describe how Justin is playing right now. He's at #6 in this week's OWGR, on the strength of ten Top10s in his last ten events (with three being wins, of course). The only question at this point is whether he can keep it up when the new year starts.

I, for one, will not bet against him. This was a dominating way to say goodbye to 2017!

Clearly his depression over losing to Sergio at Augusta is a thing of the past, so it's no surprise he's racking up those Limerick Summaries again. This is his second since late October and somehow I suspect there are more to come... very soon.
With his funk from the Masters long through
And his zest for the battle renewed,
This Rose runaway
Was an excellent way
To bid all his pursuers adieu.
