Limerick Summary: 2021 HP Enterprise Houston Open

Winner: Jason Kokrak

Around the wider world of golf: Phil Mickelson won the Charles Schwab Cup Championship on the Champions Tour (and Bernhard Langer won his sixth yearlong Cup); Nelly Korda won the Pelican Women's Championship on the LPGA; Joachim Hansen won the AVIV Dubai Championship on the ET; Mone Inami won the Ito En Ladies Golf Tournament on the JLPGA; and Hae Ran Ryu won the SK Shieldus Telecom Championship on the KLPGA. Min Ji Park won their POY and Hana Jang won the scoring title. [Thanks, IC!]

Jason Kokrak with HP trophy

Another heartbreaking week! My Twofer Tuesday picks were Aaron Wise (T26) and Talor Gooch (60). I have no explanation for why their games started to slide last week when I first picked them nor why they got even worse this week. Such is life I guess.

  • Top10s: 1 for 18 (1 Top10)
  • Winners: 0 for 9

But while my boys quietly faded into the pack, Jason Kokrak was pulling off some serious magic. When he had to finish his second round on Saturday morning and shot a miserable +7 in seven holes, it looked as if his hopes of winning were done for the week. But then he rallied big time, posting 66-65 over the weekend and finishing -4 in the last 6 holes. Four straight birdies gave him a three-shot lead.

He won at -10 by two shots.

This definitely puts Jason in the 'hot' player category. With two wins this season (and a third at last year's CJ Cup) he's clearly becoming someone to watch over the next year. Could a major be in his near future? Stay tuned!

In the meantime, Jason adds to his growing collection of Limerick Summaries. Way to go, big man!

The weekend threw Jason a curve.
It looked as though he'd lost his nerve
But that last 36
Showed his full range of tricks
As he pulled off the win he deserved.
