The Limerick Summary: 2019 RBC Heritage

Winner: C.T. Pan

Around the wider world of golf: Brooke Henderson tied the most LPGA wins by a Canadian at the LOTTE Championship; Scott McCarron won at the Mitsubishi Electric Classic on the Champions Tour; Lanto Griffin won a four-hole playoff hole at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail Championship on the Tour; John Somers won the Abierto de Chile on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; Brendan Jones won the Token Homemate Cup on the Japan Golf Tour; and Stanford University won the Western Intercollegiate.

Well, in my Tuesday Twofer picks I went chalk... and ended up with a handful of chalk dust. I picked Jim Furyk (MC) to win and Webb Simpson (T16) to Top10. Unlike the Tour events, my drought continues.
  • Winners: 2 for 16
  • Place well (Top10): 9 for 16 (5 Top5 finish, 4 more Top10s)
  • Overall Top10s: 17 of 32 (8 Top5s, 9 more Top10s)
At least I've picked a couple of winners this year.

C.T. Pan picked up his first PGA Tour win when he wasn't expected to win... by anybody. DJ was the favorite and there were a number of other experienced players in contention, but they all faded (okay, some of them pull-hooked) in the windy conditions they faced this weekend. DJ's unexpected 77 opened the door for a wild scramble but only Pan walked through. The best score on Sunday was 66, and Pan was one of four players to shoot 67. However, of them all, only Matt Kuchar was in position to win.

Unfortunately for Kuch, he started the day one stroke behind Pan.

C.T. Pan almost didn't play this week but his wife convinced him to go. (Good advice on her part!) And now, after a weekend of scrambling around the Harbour Town course, he'll be scrambling to figure out his schedule for the next few weeks. I think there are some majors waiting for him...

In the meantime he gets his first Limerick Summary, to go along with his first PGA Tour win. And since Tiger is his inspiration, I decided to let the Big Cat inspire the Limerick Summary also. Well done, C.T.!
The storms and the winds on the coast
Were almost too much for the boats!
But still the pros played
And Pan showed the way—
Down the stretch, HE was “better than most.”
