🏈 Tim Tebow’s number 85 is the NFL’s top-selling jersey. Whether he makes the team or not, his signing is a genius publicity stunt by the Jags.
🏎 Max Verstappen won Formula 1's Monaco Grand Prix, taking a 105 to 101 lead over 7-time champ Lewis Hamilton.
⚽ Atlético Madrid clinched the La Liga title for the first time since 2014, beating out both Real Madrid and Barcelona behind Luis Suarez's goal-scoring and Jan Oblak's world-class goalie play.
🚴 Fifteen stages (days) into the Giro d’Italia, one of the most important cycling races in Europe, the race’s toughest stage lies ahead. It includes a ridiculous 19,600 feet (3.75 miles) of altitude gained. That’s like biking up Mount Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft) in one day.
In front of a raucous crowd, Phil Mickelson fired a beauty on the 18th to secure the PGA Championship, becoming the oldest player to win a Major. He did it at age 50, passing Julius Boros (48) and Jack Nicklaus (46).
It was a shock, to say the least. Phil was struggling heading into the tournament:
No top 10 Major finishes since 2016.
Hasn't won on Tour in 2+ years.
In March, he dropped out of the world's top 100 for the first time since 1993.
But Phil didn't care about the numbers. After the win, he said, "This is an incredible feeling because I believed it was possible, but yet everything was saying it wasn't. And I hope that others find inspiration in that."
Moms have the best advice. With Phil leading heading into the final nine holes, Phil's mom sent his sister an epic text:
"Txt Philip and tell him to just par in. Don't hit bombs or activate calves. Just par."
Phil didn't par in and he did hit bombs (he hit the week's longest drive at 366 yards), but he did enough to beat both Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen by two strokes.
