Will Zalatoris with FedEx St. Jude trophy

Another disappointing week for my Twofer Tuesday picks. I had Rory McIlroy (MC) and Patrick Cantlay (T57). Oh, well...

  • Top10s: 23 for 86 (15 Top5, 8 Top10)
  • Winners: 3 for 42
  • Top20s: 36 for 86

It was perhaps the wildest scene ever in a playoff. Will Zalatoris's golf ball barely carried the water on the 151-yard, par-3 11th at TPC Southwind -- the third playoff hole between him and Sepp Straka. The ball bounced off the bank then bounced half a dozen more times on the rock wall separating the green from the water... and then, instead of ending up in the water, it settled between the wall and the grass.

Then after Straka put his ball in the water, Zalatoris took a drop in the drop circle, hit a long wedge shot to 7 feet and knocked in the bogey putt for his first PGA Tour win.

He's certainly been building up to this for a while. Three runner-ups in majors punctuated a strong two-year run up to this point. There's not much more I need to say, except...

Enjoy your first-ever Limerick Summary, Will. I doubt it will be your last!

His run to the top finally run,
His first win on Tour finally won,
Will Z gets his prize
And continues, his eyes
Set on East Lake. I don’t think he’s done!
