The Limerick Summary: 2019 Memorial

Winner: Patrick Cantlay

Around the wider world of golf: Sebastian Cappelen won the REX Hospital Open on the Tour; Kevin Sutherland won the Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour; Paul Barjon won the Bayview Place DCBank Open on the Mackenzie Tour; Patrick Flavin won the Bupa Match Play on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; Jeongeun Lee6 won the US Women's Open on the LPGA; Min Lee won the Valley Forge Invitational on the Symetra Tour; Guido Migliozzi won the Belgian Knockout on the ET; and Yuta Ikeda won the Gate Way To The Open Mizuno Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

These were my worst Tuesday Twofer picks yet. I picked Tony Finau (MC) to win and Matt Kuchar (MC) to Top10. What more can I say? I'm in a slump!
  • Winners: 2 for 22
  • Place well (Top10): 11 for 22 (6 Top5 finish, 5 more Top10s)
  • Overall Top10s: 22 of 44 (11 Top5s, 11 more Top10s)
Patrick Cantlay, however, is most definitely NOT in a slump.

And it doesn't hurt that he's friends with Jack Nicklaus. While Jack is always willing to give advice to players -- especially the younger players who are looking to get their careers in gear -- there are players who he takes a special interest in, simply because he is drawn to them and their determination.

And because they will listen.

Patrick said after his final round that Jack had simply told him to relax and enjoy the game. (Sounds a lot like yesterday's post, doesn't it?) And Patrick took it to heart, blistering the field with a bogey-free 64. That's hard to do anywhere, let alone at Muirfield on Sunday. His score was two strokes better than anybody else in the field, and he won by two strokes for his second PGA Tour win.

This win puts Patrick in the Top10 of both the FedExCup points standings and the OWGR... and number one in this week's run to the Limerick Summary. He's hit his stride just in time for the last three majors of the year. Perhaps he'll pick up another Limerick Summary as well!
At Muirfield the players are blessed
‘Cause Jack gives them more than a test—
He gives them direction.
Pat had no objection!
He played like a man who’s possessed.
