The Limerick Summary: 2021 Shriners Children’s Open

Winner: Sungjae Im

Around the wider world of golf: Jin Young Ko got her third LPGA win of the season at the Cognizant Founders Cup; Rafa Cabrera-Bello won the Open de España on the ET; Phil Mickelson won the Constellation FURYK & FRIENDS on the Champions Tour (his third Champions Tour win in four tries); Prima Thammaraks got her first Symetra Tour win at the Symetra Tour Championship; Tomoyasu Sugiyama won the Japan Golf Tour's Bridgestone Open; Hinaku Shibuno won the JLPGA's Stanley Ladies Golf Tournament; Su Ji Kim won the Hite Jinro Championship (his first major) on the KLPGA; and Jae Kyung Lee won the KPGA's Genesis Championship. [Thanks, IC!]

Sungjae Im with Shriners trophy

My Twofer Tuesday picks are doing worse and worse, it seems. I had Webb Simpson (MC) and Abraham Ancer (MC). My luck has to change eventually... but Vegas certainly didn't help.

  • Top10s: 0 for 6
  • Winners: 0 for 3

What can I say about the Shriners final round? We expected a shootout. The wind laid down. We got a shootout.

But Sungjae Im showed everybody that there are shootouts and then there are shootouts. It wasn't enough that he shot a 62 that included 8 birdies in 10 holes around the turn. No, Im casually lapped the field and won by 4 shots. This was his second PGA Tour win, but add in his Korean Tour win in 2019 and two Korn Ferry wins in 2018, and he's got five worldwide wins in just four years. Pretty impressive!

If Sungjae wasn't on everybody's radar before, I guarantee he is now. And so it's only appropriate that he gets a brand new Limerick Summary to commemorate the event. Way to go, Sungjae!

On Sunday the wind didn’t blow
So Sungjae said, “Okay, let’s go!”
He kicked down the door
To win this one by four
For his second win. Man, what a show!

  1. According to Korean Golf News on Instagram this week marked the first time in history that Koreans won on the PGA and LPGA Tours in the same week.
    (In describing the winner of the Hite Jinro Championship you got your genders mixed up.)
