The Limerick Summary: 2022 AT&T Byron Nelson

Winner: K.H. Lee

Around the wider world of golf: Minjee Lee won the Cognizant Founders Cup on the LPGA; Steve Stricker won the Regions Tradition, the Champions Tour's first major of 2022; Sam Horsfield won the Soudal Open on the DP World Tour; Anders Albertson won the Visit Knoxville Open on the Korn Ferry Tour; Herman Loubser won the Lombard Insurance Classic on the Sunshine Tour; Min Ji Park won the NH Investments Ladies Championship on the KLPGA; Ayaka Watanabe won the Hoken no Madoguchi Ladies on the JLPGA; Shugo Imahira won the Asia Pacific Open Golf Championship Diamond Cup on the Japan Golf Tour; and Hee Min Jang won the Woori Financial Championship on the KPGA.

K.H. Lee with Byron Nelson trophy

I thought my Twofer Tuesday picks were playing well but I had Will Zalatoris (MC) and Sam Burns (MC). Didn't Will say he'd played this course 'hundreds of times'? I guess everything's bigger in Texas... including misjudgments!

  • Top10s: 15 for 60 (9 Top5, 5 Top10)
  • Winners: 1 for 29
  • Top20s: 26 for 60

K.H. Lee got his first PGA Tour win last year at this very event. The question was, could he keep the trophy for another year? He got off to a great start -- although Sebastián Muñoz stole the show with a 60 on Thursday, Lee was T2 after posting a 64. And on Sunday he posted the third best score of the day with a 63. 

Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama made some serious runs at Lee (67 and 62 respectively) but Lee was just too much for anybody to catch Sunday afternoon. It was enough to secure his second PGA Tour win with a successful defense of his title. That's the kind of performance Tour pros love!

As if that wasn't enough, the win vaulted Lee up the FedExCup standings all the way from 116 to 28. Breaking the Top30 at this point in the season is a big boost on the way to East Lake. It's almost enough to make him forget getting his second Limerick Summary.

But I don't think Lee will. He knows what's important in a career!

It looks like Lee did it again!
Defense of his ’21 win
Makes Lee a two-timer
And FedExCup climber—
Up 88 spots. See him grin?
