It was a great weekend in sports.

Tiger Woods made a run at the PGA Championship, but he finished second behind champion Brooks Koepka. That marked the third major win in his last seven appearances on the big stage.

Rafael Nadal added another championship trophy, winning at Toronto. The big story at Rogers Cup was Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, who beat Novk Djokovic, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson before losing to Nadal in the final. The Greek is just 20 years old and has a bright future.
Big Blue Nation got a glimpse of what to expect as Kentucky shined in an exhibition event in the Bahamas. John Calipari has a legitimate national title contender.
The Red Sox continued to roll as JD Martinez makes a good case for MVP.
