Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
Underdog. Beating the big boys. Wasn't supposed to win. All qualities for a great Sportsman of the Week. 35-year-old American Gary Woodland was well below the radar for the 119th United States Open, but put together four consecutive rounds at 2 under par or better. Only two other golfers finished all four rounds under (John Rahm, Brooks Koepka). Woodland had only one tour win since 2013, and that was a playoff win over a year prior in 2018. But Woodland entered Sunday with the lead, with big dogs chasing him. Like 2-time defending champion Koepka. Former major winners Louis Oosthuizen and Justin Rose. Even Tiger Woods who birdied six of his last 12 holes. But Woodland didn't fluster. He didn't have his best round, but down the stretch he didn't falter. He punctuated his win by, while needing just a 3-putt, putting in a 30 foot putt dead center. And took his trophy. And the Sportsman of the Week!
