Sportsman of the Week Ending 7/17/2016

It is the season of international sports and historic moments.  Enter the The Open Championship at Royal Troon.  Sunday set up to be a classic match contest and did not disappoint.  Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson were several strokes ahead of the field entering the day, and it went from there. Both sides fired birdies and pars and see-sawed back and forth until the final six holes.  Then Stenson put it away.  With a brilliant putt at 14 and finishing the last four holes at 4 under par (that's one over birdie).  Mickelson simply couldn't answer the shots.  And Stenson walked away with the Claret Jug and his first Major Championship (well earned for a guy who has been so good for so long).  Henrik Stenson is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
