The Limerick Summary: 2019 TOUR Championship

Winner: Rory McIlroy

Around the wider world of golf: Jin Young Ko got her fourth LPGA win of the season at the CP Women's Open; Brandt Jobe won the Boeing Classic on the Champions Tour; Erik van Rooyen won the ET's Scandinavian Invitation; Matthew NeSmith won the Albertsons Boise Open on the Korn Ferry Tour; Carly Booth won the LET's Tipsport Czech Ladies Open; and Ryo Ishikawa won the Shigeo Nagashima Invitational SEGASAMMY Cup on the Japan Golf Tour.

Rory McIlroy lifts the trophy

I'm sure of it now. The pressure of being a Twofer Tuesday pick is just too much for most pros. This week I had Justin Thomas (T3) to win and Patrick Cantlay (T21) to Top10. The two top players in FedExCup points, one with the best scoring average of anybody around East Lake... and the best they could manage was a T3 between them.
  • Winners: 2 for 34
  • Place well (Top10): 16 for 34 (9 Top5s, 7 more Top10s)
  • Overall Top10s: 28 of 68 (15 Top5s, 13 more Top10s)
Neither Brooks Koepka nor Xander Schauffele could seem to find a way to get the job done either. No, it was Rory McIlroy who came on to win the TOUR Championship by four strokes. FOUR STROKES, people! His four-under 66 matched the low round of the day and, despite all the low scores we saw earlier in the week, that was all it took to crush the field.

I don't care what anybody says, clearly the money does mean something to these guys!

And now Rory becomes only the second player -- other than the Big Cat -- to win the FedExCup twice. And I think they said a stack of 15 million dollar bills would be around 5000 feet tall -- nearly a mile high. Now THAT'S a big stack of cash! Probably too heavy to carry around though.

Fortunately for Rory, the paper a Limerick Summary is printed on won't be nearly so heavy. This is his third of the year, you know. Wouldn't want to injure his back...
Both Thomas and Cantlay fell back
From their starts at the front of the pack.
So then Rory said, “Hey!
Since you’re giving it away,
I’ll be glad to take home the big stack.”
