The Limerick Summary: 2020 RSM Classic

Winner: Robert Streb

Around the wider world of golf: Sei Young Kim won the inaugural Pelican Women's Championship on the LPGA; Emily Pedersen won both the individual and team titles at the inaugural Saudi Ladies Team International on the LET; Joachim Hansen won the Joberg Open on the ET; and David Pastore won the LOCALiQ Series Championship on the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica. In addition, IC tells me that Takumi Kanaya won the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament on the Japan Golf Tour; and Ayaka Furue won the Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open on the JLPGA.

Robert Streb with RSM trophy

I was 1 for 2 once again with my Twofer Tuesday picks. I had Zach Johnson (T6) and Webb Simpson (T37). Webb had an off week but Zach showed he's still got it!

  • Top10s: 26 for 66 (10 Top5, 16 other Top10s)
  • Winners: 3 for 33 events
Robert Streb's game has been looking up lately but I can't think of any circumstance that would have made him stand out to me as a pick this past week. But the great thing about golf is that past performance is no guaranteed indicator of future performance.

It took him six years to get his second win, and he got it at the same tournament, in another playoff, by winning on the second playoff hole.

I'm sensing a pattern here...

For those of you interested in such things, Streb has followed his own drumbeat. He doesn't use a glove but he does use a 10-finger grip. And while I suppose you could argue that his record might be better if he did things like everybody else, I'd counter that there are hundreds of others who do things the 'orthodox' way but don't have any wins at all.

Now Streb has two. And he gets a nice shiny Limerick Summary to boot. You go, Robert! Do it your way!

Since Robert’s outlasted the worst,
His fortunes have finally reversed.
Though six years apart
Robert’s two wins may start
The career he expected at first.
