Sportsman of the Week Ending 7/31/2016

We're on a golf binge this summer but why not, as there were four first time major winners in men's golf for the first time since 2011.  The rain-soaked PGA Championship was mild on drama, but the winner was pushed to the end.  American Jimmy Walker distanced himself from the field, then fended off a late challenge by 2015 PGA Champion and World Number 1 Jason Day who Eagles 18 to push Walker to need a par.  Which he nailed.  Walker nailed four straight strong rounds, didn't bogey his last 28 holes (including two rounds on Sunday due to rain) and cemented his status as Major winner.  And he is our Sportsman of the Week.
