john rahm was running away with the memorial golf tournament after 3 rounds, when he was forced to withdraw following
a positive COVID-19 test, which left Collin Morikawa and Patrick Cantlay tied for the lead after thinking they were six strokes down before the Rahm WD. They remained tied after Sunday’s finale before Cantlay clipped Morikawa by making par on No. 18 on the only playoff hole.

*
Lexi Thompson squandered a five-shot lead in the final round of the 76th u.s. womens open by shooting a numbing 41 on the back nine, and with a bogey at 17 followed by another on the devious little monster that is the Lake Course’s 18th hole, Thompson capped a four-over-par 75 that left her one shot out of a playoff won in three holes by Yuka Saso over Japan’s Nasa Hataoka.

In what may go down as the most exciting game in the rivalry’s history, the United States men’s national team beat Mexico on Sunday in the Concacaf Nations League final, 3-2 in extra time. The U.S. twice came from behind to draw level before star attacker Christian Pulisic scored the winning penalty kick in the second half of extra time, but it wasn’t over there. Mexico was awarded their own penalty kick on a handball in the box, with backup goalkeeper Ethan Horvath, in the match because of an injury to starter Zack Steffen, denying Andres Guardado to secure the title.

***
Yet again, Simone Biles has done something that no female gymnast has ever done before.
On Sunday, Biles claimed her seventh U.S. all-around title at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, setting a new record for the most all-around titles ever for an American woman. . In addition to the all-around title, Biles also took top honors in the vault, balance beam, and floor exercises.
