US Open Golf – Brooks Koepka pulled away from the field on the last day with a score of -16 to take home the $2 million paycheck to give 8 points to those who picked ‘Other’!
Lions Tour – It is so rare to finish a drawn series we almost didn’t include it as an option in Know Your Sport! NZ took the first game before the Lions rallied to take Game 2 setting up the ‘winner takes all’ Game 3. A 15-15 draw in the final game left many with mixed emotions & first drawn series since 1955.
Wimbledon Tennis – Serena Williams’ pregnancy robbed 3/4’s of our entrants a chance to win points in the Women Singles. Her sister Venus tried to keep the trophy in the family by reaching the final but was comprehensively beaten by Garbine Muguruza 7-5, 6-0 in 77 minutes. In the Men’s event, Roger Federer claimed his 8th Wimbledon title beating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 in a competition plagued with injuries to the main stars.
The Tour de France is into its final week & anything can happen in the closing stages with huge mountain climbs & time trials to be navigated by Chris Froome & the chasing pack. The event finishes Sunday, July 23rd, in Paris.
