Sportsman of the Week Ending 7/23/2023

In what was expected to be a wide-open Open Championship (known State Side as the British Open), a relative underdog streaked to easy victory. American Brian Harman surged to a 5-stroke lead by the cut day and never looked back.  Helping him (or indicative of the challenge of the course), it seemed to be different challengers on different days as some players would surge, then fade, then another would get hot but not sustain.  In the end, the steady 5'7" lefty American gapped the field by 6 strokes.  His four rounds of 70 or under was more than enough to hold off chargers like Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, and Tom Kim.  The 36-year-old Harman wins his first major and made it look easy, the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
