The Limerick Summary: 2018 Dell Technologies Championship

Winner: Bryson DeChambeau

Around the wider world of golf: A lot of first-timers won this week! Marina Alex got her first LPGA victory at the Cambia Portland Classic; Scott McCarron picked up another Champions Tour win at the Shaw Charity Classic; Kramer Hickok got his first Tour victory at the DAP Championship; Richard Jung won his first PGA TOUR - China event at the Suzhou Open; Linnea Ström got her first Symetra Tour victory at the Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge; Matt Wallace got his third European Tour title of the season at the Made in Denmark; and Rikuya Hoshino won the Fujisankei Classic on the Japan Golf Tour.

Bryson DeChambeau with Dell trophy

I told you that Bryson DeChambeau had locked up a Captain's pick. Do you believe me now?

As of today, he has won the first two FedExCup Playoff events (I believe only Vijay has done that before), guaranteed that he will be #1 on the points list going into the Tour Championship, moved to #7 in the OWGR, become the fourth player with three wins this season, become only the fifth player to win four times before his 25th birthday in the last 30 years... and, oh yes, made a lot of skeptics eat their own words.

Except for a bogey at 13, I'm not sure a DeChambeau win was ever in question Monday. He played a pretty steady round of golf and finally won by two shots over a charging Justin Rose. (Boy, he looks to be in good shape for the Ryder Cup too, doesn't he?)

Whatever was bugging Bryson on the range a few weeks back is little more than a bad memory now. He can focus on this week's Playoff event and getting ready to team up with Tiger Woods at the Ryder Cup. Perhaps somewhere in his busy schedule he'll find time to celebrate his third Limerick Summary of the year as well.
A man on a mission? Seems so!
In two weeks of play, DeChambeau
Has removed any doubt;
He’s got FedExCup clout
And, in three weeks, to Paris he’ll go.
