Weekend Winner

Happy belated Father’s Day to all the Hi-Top Nation Mack Daddys and Daddy Macks out there. Hi-Top salutes you.

It was an action packed weekend in the World of Sport but alas there can only be one winner and this Weekend’s Winner was without a doubt…

Local Fescue

The course dominated the players at this year’s US Open with (back-to-back) Winner Brooks Koepka shooting at 1 Over Par to take the Trophy.

After an absolutely brutal Saturday, the USGA soaked the course (much to the players never ending chagrin) producing a more friendly playing surface on Sunday.

Golfers took advantage, most notably Tommy Fleetwood, who went on a charge shooting a Tournament low 63, but ultimately Koepka was able to hold on or rather bounce on as his approach on 18 took a nice bounce of the grandstand, and he nabbed the one shot win.

In the end all that matters (for the USGA at least) is that people were taking about golf. Whether it was Phil Mickelson’s antics or the ice skating rink greens or the knee high fescue, the US Open was the talk of the Sport weekend while the World Cup was relegated to “Oh yeah that started???” status.
