The Limerick Summary: 2022 Masters

Winner: Scottie Scheffler

Around the wider world of golf: Ratchanon Chantananuwat won the Trust Golf Asian Mixed Cup on the Asian Tour; Momoko Ueda won the Fujifilm Studio Alice Ladies Open on the JLPGA; and Su Yeon Jang won the Lotte Rent A Car Open on the KLPGA. [Thanks, IC!]

Scottie Scheffler with Masters trophy and Green Jacket

A reasonably typical week for my Twofer Tuesday picks. I had Dustin Johnson (T12) and Will Zalatoris (T6). DJ stumbled a bit coming down the stretch but Will had another good showing at the Masters for a Top10.

  • Top10s: 13 for 50 (8 Top5, 5 Top10)
  • Winners: 1 for 24
  • Top20s: 23 for 50

I did get one thing right in my predictions last week. In my last Twofer Tuesday post I said:

"I know I should pick Scottie Scheffler -- and I'll probably be kicking myself next week for not doing so."

And I am. But I think I can be forgiven for believing that winning four events out of six, a WGC Match Play and a Masters among them, in a mere two months when you had no wins at all before was asking a bit much. From basically nowhere to World #1 in two months is just incredible as it is... and now I expect a Masters too? It's just a crazy thought.

Yet here stands Scottie Scheffler, the World #1 with four wins in just two months, slipping into a Green Jacket.

Like Scottie, I just don't have any words to describe this. Where does he go now? Let's face it -- this could be an entire career for most players but Scottie has done it in less than eight weeks. How long can this run last? I don't know. But even I admit that a Limerick Summary doesn't seem enough for what he's accomplished. Still, it's the best I can do so here it is. Congrats, Scottie!

It’s hard to believe what he’s done,
From no wins to World Number One
In only eight weeks.
Past valleys and peaks
Merely set up his big Masters run.
