The Limerick Summary: 2019 Sanderson Farms

Winner: Sebastián Muñoz

Around the wider world of golf: Danny Willett won the BMW PGA Championship on the ET; Nelly Korda won by 8 shots at the LET's Lacoste Ladies Open de France; Rocco Mediate won the Sanford International on the Champions Tour; Chandler Blanchet won the São Paulo Golf Club Championship on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica; Laura Restrepo won the Guardian Championship on the Symetra Tour; and Jbe Kruger won the Shinhan Donghae Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

Not a good week for my Twofer Tuesday picks. I had Scottie Scheffler (T16) to win and Corey Conners (MC) to Top10. Ironically, I had originally taken Viktor Hovland as my Top10er, then found out that he was playing in Europe; he finished T11 against a much stronger field.
  • Winners: 2 for 38
  • Place well (Top10): 17 for 38 (9 Top5s, 8 more Top10s)
  • Overall Top10s: 30 of 76 (15 Top5s, 15 more Top10s)
Before we get to the hero of the story, let's spare a thought for Sungjae Im. The 2019 Rookie of the Year came so close, posting the clubhouse lead with the third-best round of the day, only to have our hero pull off some heroics -- that's what heroes do, after all -- on the last hole to make a playoff and then win that playoff on the same hole. You have to believe Im will get that win eventually.

But Sunday wasn't the day.

Sebastián Muñoz won the second PGA Tour event of the new season. But in doing so the week after his friend Joaquin Niemann won the first one, Latin Americans have now won every event in the 2019-2020 wraparound season. (I know that's only two events, but it still makes history.) And given that Sebastián barely got a card for this season -- his finish at the Wyndham put him 124 of the 125 who made it -- this win wasn't expected at all. No wonder he was pretty much speechless!

But even better for Sebastián, the Sanderson Farms Championship is no longer an alternate-field event. That means he got all the perks, including a PLAYERS invite as well as a Masters spot.

Yes, life is good for the rookie. But it gets even better, because he gets his first Limerick Summary. Hmmm, all the Limerick Summaries this season have been won by Latin Americans. I wonder if this is the start of a trend...
At Wyndham he barely slipped by—
Placed one-twenty-four and that’s why
It was such a surprise
When he picked up this prize.
Now Sebastián’s one jubilant guy!
