The Limerick Summary: 2023 Genesis Invitational

Winner: Jon Rahm

Around the wider world of golf: Bernhard Langer won the Chubb Classic on the Champions Tour, tying Hale Irwin's record win total; Thorbjørn Olesen won the Thailand Classic on the DP World Tour; Travis Smyth won the International Series Qatar on the Asian Tour; Jj Senekal won the SDC Open on the Sunshine Tour; David Micheluzzi won the TPS Sydney on the Australasian Tour; and Lydia Ko won the Aramco Saudi Ladies International on the LET.

My Twofer Tuesday picks did a little better this time around. I had Max Homa (2) and Adam Scott (65). Adam stumbled this week but I almost had another winner with Homa.

  • Top10s: 4 for 14 (3 Top5s 1 Top10)
  • Winners: 1 for 7 events
  • Top20s: 5 for 14

Well, he's at it again. Jon Rahm picked up his third PGA Tour win of 2023, his sixth worldwide win in the last year. That's two of the PGA Tour 'elevated events' plus the DP World TOUR Championship. A total of four PGA Tour events (don't forget the Mexico Open last May) and two European events. The only Spaniard to ever win at Riviera.

Anyway you cut it, that's more events than any other player on Tour over the last 12 months.

And we haven't even got to the majors yet! But THE PLAYERS is only four weeks away...

I won't belabor this win, simply because I'm running out of superlatives to describe what Jon is doing. But I can give him another Limerick Summary and congratulations, so I'll let it go at that. Congrats, Jon!

That’s three wins this calendar year—
Does Jon have pros trembling in fear?
His total keeps mounting
(Six worldwide, and counting!)
And soon major time will be here!
