Bayley, Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai caught the attention of the women's division

Bayley, Sky and Kai made a big impression after the group debuted at SummerSlam (Author: Gardener)

BayleyRaw arrived in Houston Monday night for the first episode of WWE programming since last Saturday's SummerSlam, and the show featured plenty of great wrestling action. The most impressive group of the night, however, was the newly formed team of Bayley, Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai. The trio debuted as a group at SummerSlam, confronting Bianca Belair after Belair's victory over Becky Lynch to retain the Raw Women's Championship. On Monday night, they again targeted Belair and Lynch, first attacking an already injured Lynch and then turning their attention to other members of the Raw women's division as they declared their intention to dominate the roster. Opening the show with an in-ring promo, Becky Lynch came to the ring with one arm in a sling after reportedly suffering a legitimate shoulder detachment in her SummerSlam match with Bianca Belair. Lynch clipped a babyface promo and built on her move after showing respect to Belair after the match. After Lynch left and Belair spoke, the cameras cut backstage where Bayley, Iyo Sky, and Dakota attacked Kai Lynch's already injured arm before fleeing Belair's arrival to save. Later that night, Bayley, Sky and Kai said the attack wasn't about Lynch or Belair, it was just about themselves, and vowed to show how later. Alexa Bliss ended up without a contest when Bayley, Sky and Kai attacked both women. Belair ran in to save and later that night demanded a match with one of the women. Bianca Belair vs. Iyo Sky ended in a no contest when Bayley and Kai started brawling with Bliss and Asuka in the ring. Bliss and Asuka came to ringside in the middle of the match to level Belair's chances and the inevitable brawl broke out to stop the match before it could finish. While clean finishes are always desirable, a no contest is acceptable if not overused and serves to advance a story. Bayley's group wanted to make a statement that they were banding together to take power, regardless of who they needed to attack to achieve their goals. Belair couldn't really get there without either crippling Sky before fully establishing herself on the main roster, or going past the Raw Champion and effectively outshining Bayley. In the interests of advancing the story that would lead to a Six Women's Day Match, it was all perfectly fine. * Defeated AJ Styles. Mustafa Ali and The Miz via pinfall after a Styles Clash on Ali. The first of two triple threat matches, which saw the winners vie for a USA title shot, ended with an amazing finish that saw Ali hit Miz with a 450 splash, but Styles caught Ali on the follow through and converted it in a Styles Clash for the win. Montez Ford via a pinfall after a stomp. Interrupting a Rollins promo about his intention to pursue Roman Reigns, the Street Profits played rock, paper, scissors over who would face Rollins, with Ford grabbing a referee and running to the ring to cheat Angelo Dawkins of the opportunity . Dawkins still saved Ford after the match by preventing Rollins from continuing his attack. Chad Gable & Dolph Ziggler via pinfall to take on AJ Styles to win the US Title. AJ Styles via pinfall with the Fairy Tale ending. Miz interfered several times, allowing Ciampa to earn the win and secure a shot against Bobby Lashley for the US Championship on next week's episode of Raw. * Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship – The Usos (c) def. The Mysterios via pinfall to retain the titles after hitting Dominik Mysterio with the 1-D. After the match, The Judgment Day attacked The Mysterios until Edge's music started and he ran to the ring to fight Finn Balor and Damian Priest.

Winners, Messages and Notes

WWE Raw results with episodes from WWE SummerSlam 2022. (Author: Gardener)

NotesWWE Raw promoted episodes of SummerSlam 2022 as the Mysterios challenged the Usos for the WWE Undisputed Tag Team Championships. Raw also bid two triple threat matches for the right to fight Bobby Lashley for the WWE United States Championship. Dolph Ziggler, Tommaso Ciampa and Chad Gable competed in one Triple Threat Match while Mustafa Ali, The Miz and AJ Styles competed in the other. With news of Sasha Banks and Naomi's imminent return to WWE, and a possible teaser of a "statement" show, the pair did not return to WWE Raw. Last week's WWE Raw continued its winning streak with 1.901 million viewers at the start of the Triple H era. Becky Lynch opened WWE Raw in a sling following reports that she sustained a shoulder injury during her match against Bianca Belair. Becky Lynch, who confirmed she separated her shoulder, said she's finally remembered who the heck she is and solidified a long-awaited babyface twist, a year ago, into a flat heel run. Not only did Lynch say we're starting a new era, she even confirmed The Man's return. Becky Lynch was attacked backstage, prompting a possible return for Sasha Banks and Naomi to face Bayley's new faction. If Mustafa Ali were to win this match it would be another indication of a new era in WWE, but unfortunately Ali could be a damaged asset in WWE at this point and I'm not holding my breath. This match had an incredible ending when Mustafa connected Ali with a 450 Splash only to be immediately caught in a Styles Clash. While pleased to take down Riddle, Seth Rollins said now is the time to turn his attention to Roman Reigns and the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. Rollins suggested that the Street Profits disband while WWE continues to tease exactly that for the longtime tag team. In deciding which of the Street Profits Seth Rollins should face, Montez cheated Ford during a game of R0 sham-bo by sprinting to the ring with a referee. Corey Graves spent much of this match suggesting that Alexa Bliss and Asuka are shells of themselves. He said Alexa Bliss wasn't even the same Bliss the last time she was champion and that Asuka is a "semblance of tomorrow's empress". Bliss and Asuka were jumped by Bayley, Iyo Shirai, and Dakota Kai, suggesting that Bliss and Asuka will be their tag team partners in a possible trio match. Chad Gale delivered another solid promo on his way to the ring where he shot at the Houston Astros and took massive heat. A disagreement broke out between Tommaso Ciampa and Chad Gable when Ciampa told Gable to say "shoosh." Ciampa, who got to cut a backstage promo, received new theme music and a win in another very good Triple Threat match. Edge walked out to his vintage theme music and entrance and it felt so right. Edge kept this promo relatively short and sweet, vowing to "kill what he made" and end Judgment Day. Io Sky has been known to use the 619, but with Bianca Belair on the ropes - and Rey Mysterio wrestling later in the evening - she switched it to flying knees backwards. Unfortunately, but predictably, this match ended in disqualification as Asuka, Alexa Bliss, and Bianca Belair tussled with Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Io Sky. During Tommaso Ciampa's backstage promo, The Miz noted that Ciampa "didn't help him beat Logan Paul," and teased a possible split between Miz and Ciampa. This up-and-down crowd came alive to chant "Little Balls!" at The Miz. Booker T appeared as a commentator for this match and received one of the biggest ovations of the night from a mostly pretty dead crowd. The camera continuously cuts to Booker T as he makes a comment. Tommaso Ciampa beat AJ Styles after receiving help from The Miz, and Tommaso Ciampa's jab was the big story coming out of a fairly uneventful Raw. In front of a weak audience with very little credibility for the Mysterios and all the credibility in the Usos corner, few people seemed to believe the Mysterios stood a chance. The finish to this match was excellent as Jey Uso tagged blind and Dominik Mysterios countered 619 with a 1D. Edge came down to save for the Mysterios and despite it being his second appearance, he received a huge reaction.

WWE Raw Live Scores

The new WWE era continues with the first Raw since SummerSlam. (Author: Gardener)

RawRaw's fallout from SummerSlam takes place tonight at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. We'll find out what's next for Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair after successfully defending her title against Becky Lynch. Belair was faced with the returning Bayley, Dakota Kai and Io Shirai - now IYO SKY - but was backed by Lynch. Theory failed to regain the US Championship after losing to Bobby Lashley and failed to cash in the bank during the Main Event after being attacked by both Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship against Lesnar in the Last Man Standing Match. The Usos remain the undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions after beating The Street Profits at SummerSlam. They will put the titles on the line against Rey & Dominik Mysterio tonight. Winners advance to the match of a number one US title contender. Becky Lynch started Raw. She entered with an arm sling and they edited to a video package of Bianca Belair's win followed by the post-game perspective. Lynch has spoken in the past of hitting rock bottom and not knowing who she was without the championship, but at SummerSlam she finally remembered who the hell she was. Not only did she do it for herself, but she wanted to create the biggest women's section they've ever had for all the women in the background who bust their ass off every week. But she wasn't defined by a game or the title, she defined the title. She said she wasn't defined by the man, she defined "the man". She planned to make the greatest comeback of all time. She called Belair. Belair told Lynch that she didn't just define "the man," "you are the man." Lynch told her, "Hold it — see you soon." The crowd sang to Lynch as she left. Belair had nothing but respect for Lynch. She hasn't forgotten the sneaky things Lynch did, but she didn't want to be handed anything and Lynch made her work for it. She shook hands with SummerSlam because they respected each other and being respected by Lynch meant something. Belair was always ready for her next challenger - whether it was Bayley or her friends. They cut to the back where Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky Lynch attack. Bayley appeared to attack Lynch's arm/shoulder with a steel chair. Bayley and her friends were gone when Belair sprinted backwards. Officials checked Lynch. There are no commercial breaks for the first hour, but they add variety with video packages. There was a nice video pack from JBL that emphasized the importance of the US title and highlighted some of the previous winners including Harley Race, Sgt Slaughter, Roddy Piper, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, JBL, Scott Hall, Bret Hall, John Cena , Ricky Steamboat, Booker T, Kofi Kingston, Rick Rude, Mr. Perfect, Edge, Miz, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and now Bobby Lashley. He didn't know when he would be back, but it would be soon and he couldn't wait. There were some cool spots in the match including Ali hitting Styles with a hyper speed Tornado DDT from the apron. As Ali entered the ring, Miz caught him with a skull crushing finale, but it took him too long to hide and Ali exited. Ali hit Miz with a 450 splash, but his momentum sent him straight into the arms of AJ, who hit a Styles Clash on Miz for the pinfall win (Styles pinned Ali). The crowd loved the unique finish. Sarah Schreiber reached out to Bayley and company for comment. Bayley said it wasn't about Lynch, it was about her, and everyone would find out more soon enough. Schreiber asked the Usos if they had to face Rey and Dominik Mysterio just days into their stint as Street Profits. Rollins called a celebration tonight because we didn't need to see or hear the original idiot riddle. Rollins said Riddle wanted to be like Randy so badly that he's now on the shelf. With Riddle out of the picture, Rollins wanted to turn his attention to Roman Reigns and the Universal title. The crowd cheered. Rollins didn't want to share airspace with WWE's Biggest Losers, and he wondered how many times they lost to the Usos. Angelo Dawkins reminded Rollins that they beat him to become tag champions. Montez Ford recalled that Rollins was the guy who lost to Cody Rhodes by just one fool. Rollins got angry and threatened to trample her, but he was smart enough not to take on both at once. Dawkins asked the crowd if they would like to see one of them beat up Rollins tonight. Dawkins suggested a rock-paper-scissors to see who would face Rollins, so they brought out a referee to officiate their game. As they started rock-paper-scissors, Ford grabbed the referee and sprinted to the ring so he could start the match. Ford got plenty of insult and a couple of near misses - including after hitting a Tornado DDT and only counting two because Rollins broke his rope. Rollins followed up with a buckle bomb and a hawk dart for a nearfall. Ford dodged a frog splash and went for one himself, but Rollins lifted his knees and hit a curb stomp for the pinfall win. (Good match that should get you watching Ford get another shot at Rollins.) Rollins braced for another stomp, but Dawkins ran down to scare him off. There was a Roman Reigns/Brock Lesnar video pack, a plugin for Reigns vs. They had a back and forth match when Bayley, Kai and Sky attacked for the DQ/no contest. It seemed like Sky was preparing a moonsault with a steel chair, but Belair ran down to chase them away. Belair requested a match with one of them. Belair vs. Sky has been announced for tonight. Chad Gable cut a promo on his way to the ring saying he was going to win this match, beat that ignoramus AJ Styles, and take this country back on his back. They went into the break two and a half minutes into the game. After the break, Gable applied an ankle lock to Ziggler as Ciampa threw in a cross. Gable stepped aside from Ciampa, but Ciampa ended the situation by giving Gable a leg lariat. Ciampa hit Ziggler with an air raid crash off the middle rope, but Gable headbutted the cover off. When Gable missed a German suplex on Ciampa, Ziggler brought Gable down with a zig-zag for a near fall. They all traded weighs and counterattacks until Ciampa hit Gable with a knee kick and Fairy Tale ending for the pinfall win. (Pretty good match, but the crowd was pretty quiet with Ziggler as the only babyface.) Ciampa meets Styles tonight and the winner meets Lashley for the US title. Edge walked in to a huge ovation and thanked them for it. Edge said, "To be fair, I've been a bit of an asshole the past few months. Edge thought maybe he could pass on his 30-year knowledge to Damian Priest and Rhea Ripley. Rey said they were done with Judgment Day and now had to deal with Edge. He called the Edge family after they won the tag titles together. Tonight it was all about one thing - beating the Usos and becoming champions in Houston. Schreiber interviewed Bayley and her buddies. Bayley said those jerks had been on a downward spiral since she left, so she reached out to two women who had waited far too long for their moment. Dakota Kai said they know how to play the game. Sky said she would see Belair in the ring. Untitled match: Bianca Belair vs. IYO SKY ended in a no contest (17:16). Sky hit an Asai Moonsault and they went a minute into the match to rest. Belair was in control after the break but Bayley and Kai sauntered out and the slight distraction allowed Sky to knock them off the top with a hurricanrana. Sky slipped out of a KOD and attempted a jump off the apron, but Belair caught her and swung her into the barricade. Belair tried to throw Sky back in the ring, but Bayley and Kai sat on the apron to block her path as the referee just stood there and yelled. Asuka and Bliss marched out to even the odds as they went into another break. Belair hit a superplex and a standing moonsault for two. Sky fought back in the corner with a double foot stomp and a running knee strike. Belair bought her down with a spinebuster, but Sky got her knees up on Belair's handspring moonsault attempt. Bayley brings Belair down as Sky distracts the referee and Sky tries to cover with her feet on the rope, but Bliss knocks her out. Bliss and Asuka jumped in the ring to brawl with Kai and Bayley, leading to another no-contest/double-DQ finish. The faces and heels brawled until officers broke things up as the crowd chanted "Let Them Fight."

Shanahan praises the "inspirational" Samuel who signs a new three-year deal with the 49ers

Deebo Samuel has pledged his future to the San Francisco 49ers, ending an uncertain period for both parties. (Author: Gardener)

49ersKyle Shanahan said Deebo Samuel "inspired" him when the San Francisco 49ers confirmed the All-Pro wide receiver signed a three-year extension. Reports on Sunday suggested that Samuel, entering the final season of his rookie deal, would be guaranteed $58.1 million in a deal potentially worth $73.5 million. In the 2021 season, Samuel became just the second player to score six or more rushing and touchdowns and rush for over 1,000 receiving yards in a single NFL campaign after former 49ers running back Roger Craig in 1985 was first. Samuel also set an NFL season record for a wide receiver with eight rushing touchdowns. The 26-year-old led the league in yards per reception (18.2) last season among players with at least 35 catches, while his 1,770 yards from scrimmage was ranked the third-highest in the league and the second-highest total by a wide receiver in franchise history, trailing only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's 1,884 in 1995. At a media conference Monday shortly before official confirmation, head coach Shanahan said, "My favorite thing about Deebo is how much he inspires people. He inspires me more than almost any other player I've watched on a field. "The way he runs the ball when you give it to him or throw it to him when he catches it with a kick and those not things you have to coax him into doing. He usually persuades you to do them because Deebo just loves to play soccer. “He loves helping us win and I think everyone sees that on Sunday when you see him on TV. Following the deal's confirmation, 49ers general manager John Lynch also referenced the player's inspirational qualities, saying: "We are delighted to have him join forces with Deebo to keep him with the 49ers for years to come. “Deebo has the rare ability not only to play at a unique level, but also to inspire his teammates with his style of play.

Devin McCourty describes how he draws "inspiration and motivation" from Bill Russell

Devin McCourty is one of the more socially and politically active New England Patriots players of the past decade, with the certainty that it takes time to show support for a reorganization of Massachusetts' youth system and to join and organize the Players Coalition. (Author: Gardener)

Devin McCourtyDevin McCourty is one of the more socially and politically active New England Patriots players in the last decade, with the security taking some time to show support for a reorganization of Massachusetts' youth system and to join and organize the Players Coalition, a group by NFL players focused on tackling systemic inequality. And so it was fitting to see McCourty ask if he could speak to the media on Monday, just a day after the death of Bill Russell, who was as much an advocate for the black community as he was for the Boston Celtics. McCourty explained what Russell meant to him. "Just his willingness and vulnerability to be very open about what he went through and what he wanted to change," McCourty said. "I think as an athlete and player in this field, I drew a lot of inspiration and motivation from his point of view. I think the way he paved the way for black athletes to be successful in this city -- in sports in general." McCourty added, "I think all of us here aspire to be like Bill Russell. McCourty was hardly the only player Russell influenced. "It's really hard to put into words what a man like Bill Russell has obviously meant to not only this city, but professional sports, black athletes and just the progress that we've seen in this country. ... When I think of Bill Russell I don't necessarily think of the championships or the Celtics and the win - which I think is a legacy that speaks for itself. I think of what he did for black athletes and I am a beneficiary of the actions of men and women like Bill Russell who were willing to step up and speak up for black athletes and black Americans and really up Push for change and push for equality. The reality is that he wasn't even considered a full citizen in this country when he started his life - so really think about it. ... When I think of Bill Russell, I celebrate that part of his legacy more than anything else."

One for the money, two for the show

Henrik Stenson and Tony Finau both won on Sunday, but each had distinctly different meanings. (Author: Gardener)

Henrik StensonTony Finau's reign of terror continues, Henrik Stenson plays like a victorious captain, the PGA Tour regular season comes to an end, and more in this week's Monday Scramble: As his close and near misses and sour Sundays piled up, Finau seemed to be the only one , who was not worried about the winless drought. That in one of those weeks, as he continued to position himself, it would all come together. I've always been like that," he said. "I've always had hope and belief that if I just keep working hard and going for it, things will turn out." pic.twitter.com/DyBmEwqDOG - PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 31, 2022 With the chance , winning for consecutive weeks on Sunday, Finau put on another clinical performance, blowing wide at the Rocket Mortgage Classic to convert the first 54-hole lead of his career. He is the first since Brendon Todd in 2019 to win events in consecutive weeks in the regular season. He is the first since Justin Thomas in 2017 to win by three or more shots in consecutive weeks. This is the version of Finau we always knew was possible: ride it on a rope, hit iron shots, roll putts, strut all over the property. Now, after years of being so close, he's starting to see it too. In the last two weeks, Finau has doubled his overall wins at the Tour (from two to four). Was it an unfortunate timing that this hot streak came after the main season ended? The 32-year-old plays the best golf of his life. Those two weeks have propelled him from 30th to 7th in the FedExCup; With the way the postseason format is structured, his current form will line him up for a massive payday (to go along with the more than $2.5 million he just raked in). On Sunday night, as Finau reflected on his productive but ultimately winless years, he dropped a line that reminded us why he's so special. "They say a winner is a loser who just keeps trying and that's me to the tee," he said. But I'm not giving up and I'm only here as a winner because I decided not to give up and just kept going.” As we weren't there at Trump Bedminster last week, we point you in the direction of those who ( here and here) were. Based on that coverage, the third LIV event looked, sounded and seemed like a political spectacle with a bit of golf. Despite all the din, despite all the promises of disruption, despite a tide of signings that are reportedly now approaching $1 billion, it's still too early to tell if LIV is a success or failure as a legitimate golf product. A better reflection of what the rival tour will truly be - fixed 48-man fields, 12 sponsored teams of four players - is coming in 2023. There were more player reveals last week (Bubba Watson), and there's plenty more to be rumored to be soon . In delicious irony, Henrik Stenson, who has come down at world No. 173 and without a top 10 on the Tour in three years, won the 54-hole event just a week after being stripped of his European Ryder Cup captaincy. He was well compensated for that victory: $4 million for first place, in addition to the $375,000 for being on the second-place team, on top of the juicy signing bonus that seemed tempting enough to be willing give up his career dream of leading Team Europe. "Maybe there was a little extra motivation this week," Stenson said afterwards. “If we have that as players, I think we can bring out the good stuff. I definitely did that this week. "I think that's been a bit of an issue throughout my career, I think when I really want something, I manage to dig a little bit deeper, and a lot of times we manage to make it happen." Stenson's week-long yield was almost double as high as the one Finau brought home for two trophies, but in doing so the 46-year-old Swede gave up a title that has no price tag. The rationale for each LIV defector is different, and Stenson preferred money to one of the greatest honors bestowed on a player. Stenson continues to argue about how his brief Ryder Cup tenure ended. He said he had not resigned from the captaincy; it was taken from him. He said he worked it out with LIV Golf to continue playing both roles; The Ryder Cup Europe clearly had different ideas. Because he was so evasive on some of the finer details surrounding his decision to accept the role in March, it leaves the impression that the former Open champion had used the captaincy to strike a sweeter deal with the Saudis. If yes: Ik. Luke Donald officially replaces Henrik Stenson as captain of the European Ryder Cup 2023 The Ryder Cup Europe has found its (new) man anyway: Luke Donald, who was named Stenson's successor on Monday. The posh Englishman was in the mix this spring but was ultimately passed over for Stenson, a move that reportedly left him steaming since Stenson was known to be locked in intense talks with the Saudis when the league, at least in early March , seemed more rumor than reality. There was always a chance he could be lured back - especially if his profile was to be raised. He is respected and liked by his colleagues. He has contact with today's top players. He will know what a successful cup team looks like as he has only played for them throughout his career. And in the culture war of golf, he will be firmly in favor of the DP World Tour. He said last week that LIV had contacted him about joining the league - not as a player but as a broadcaster. "I would keep my word and go through with it, let me put it this way," he told Golfweek last week before firing at his former teammate. A PGA Tour regular season like no other has come to an end. The Wyndham Championship is the 44th and final week on the regular tour schedule. It is also the final season where No. 125 will be the borderline for status in the Regular Season Finals. Starting next year, in a significant change, the FedExCup Playoffs will only be available to the top 70 players. These 70 will be fully liberated for the following season; Anyone outside of that number can improve their status in the fall, after which the top 125 will be completely stripped for 2024. Here are some players who are at or near the bubble number this week (note: rankings listed are from the eligibility list). : It's the third year in a row that Hadley is on his way to the regular-season finals in this position, so at least he won't be alien to the stage. Last year he jumped from 132nd to 125th with a 62nd place finish in the finals at the Wyndham. Rickie Fowler (123): For the second time in a row, the fan favorite threatens to miss the tour postseason. The Rocket Mortgage Ambassador was unraveled in the second round in Detroit, carding a 74 to end his hopes of a late playoff push. With Saturday being free, he was spotted on the range working on his game. Fowler is still exempt through 2022-23 because of his victory at the 2019 Phoenix Open, which added to his exemption from winning the 2015 Players and subsequent wins. Austin Smotherman (125): He's the man on the cutting line thanks to a stunning season in which he had just a single top-10 in 24 starts. That happened last month at the counterfield event in Tahoe. He went 74-73 in rounds in Detroit last week to miss another opportunity to pick up some much-needed points. His Masters exemption expires after this season. Francesco Molinari (133): The 2018 Open champion will miss the playoffs after retiring from the Wyndham field before the start of tournament week. It's been another lost year: a top-10 in 17 events, his world rankings now plummeting outside the top 150. He's still suspended in the 2024-25 season, but his window may have closed. Harry Higgs (138): He hasn't been able to build on his breakout year and has only beaten 69 once since mid-April. Fans will be looking to push this popular player across the finish line this week. Zach Johnson (142): The captain of next year's Ryder Cup will need to summon some of his ancient magic to make the playoffs. He was inside the top 20 in Detroit with a lap to go, but he hit a backflip with a Sunday 75 that dropped him to T-49. He has no top 10 finishes this season and will not be fully exempted next season unless he uses some of his career exceptions. He's going to need a huge week and hasn't had a top 20 result since the Valero in early April. Like Johnson, he's not fully exempt next season either. Harris English (182): Not a big surprise after missing a significant portion of the season following hip surgery. He's fully free for next season but it's still a shame he couldn't capitalize on his career best from 2021. The 22-year-old Japanese, seven-time JLPGA winner, landed her first LPGA title in an unlikely manner, carding a tournament and course record 62 in the final round to skip proven LPGA talents Lydia Ko and Celine Boutier to join Dundonald Left to get a three-shot victory. This will set her up well for this week's Women's Open, the (sigh) last major of the year on any tour. Flat Weekend: Lydia Ko. Just when it looked like the former teenage phenom was in overdrive, carding consecutive rounds of 65 to take a halfway lead, Ko couldn't get anything going over the weekend. Despite having just one win to her name, her 2022 campaign was excellent - and now she has five top-five finishes in her last six starts at Muirfield. Not much has gone wrong in the career of this 22-year-old major champion, but Patty T was in the middle of a rough patch, missing her last five cuts from April. When she finally played her way into the weekend at the Scottish Open, emotions got the best of her. Good for her to show how much it means to get off the hook - she's far too talented to be held down for long. "When golf isn't going well and your personal life isn't going well, it just adds up emotionally. @Patty_MPT after making her first cut in 5 starts. #TGWSO @LPGA pic.twitter.com/YHNRIgfUmP - Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open (@Womens_Scottish ) July 29, 2022 Style Points: Tom Kim. Well, that's one way to secure your PGA Tour card. Kim, who accepted temporary special membership after his impressive result at the Scottish Open last month, took another deep dive at Rocket Mortgage. With a course record of 63 in the finals, Captain Immelman secured full member status for the following season. With four picks at his disposal, Captain Immelman could be doing worse than stalking Kim for next month's Presidents Cup. So Close It Hurts: Cameron Young. With another second place finish at Rocket Mortgage, Young became the seventh player in the past 40 years to have five or more second place finishes in a single season. After all, he bagged the honor of Rookie of the Year? the highest ranking juniors in the field, and they met in the finals - rare stuff! Ding, a member of Arizona State, built an 8 lead in the scheduled 36-hole final and, significantly, became the first Chinese player to win the boys' amateur tournament. Surratt, who will play together in Tennessee, has impressed all summer and has never finished below ninth in his last nine amateur starts, although he will certainly be disappointed with the final result at the biggest junior event of the year. The moody left-hander, who has long been rumored to be freaking out, was the last to sign up for LIV Golf, which he announced over the weekend, although he won't compete until early 2023 as he recovers from surgery on his right knee recovered. (He will serve as non-playing captain for the remainder of this year.) Watson is winless since 2018 and has rarely factored in in recent years, but he remains a name most golf fans will be familiar with. He ranked 10th in the Player Impact Program rankings last year, despite another underperforming season on the ropes, largely due to his notoriety and (seriously) TikTok skill. At 43 he is well past his prime but Watson, who has served as assistant/volunteer captain at the Ryder and Solheim Cups in recent years, actually seems a good fit for LIV as he focuses more on the team aspect . In the same week that Forbes listed 51-year-old Mickelson as the highest-paid athlete in 2022 (while using some reported estimates and approximations in relation to his nine-figure signing bonus), he showed just how much he fleeced the Saudis. Fresh from vacation after The Open, Mickelson finished 35th in the tenuous 48-man field and continued his terrible game since returning from his self-imposed hiatus. He's a whopping 42 over par in three LIV appearances. He's the richest member of the rival league - and unfortunately also one of the worst players. The NBA Hall of Famer, one of the sports media's biggest figures, flirted with joining LIV Golf as a broadcaster, but chose to stick with his current gig on TNT (although it was unclear if LIV would ever actually accept an offer by Barkley's March 28 deadline). July had extended). Although Barkley ultimately didn't jump on board, his brief dalliance and strong support of the rival tour was all the PR they could hope for. A former Southern Cal hotshot, Crocker has taken the unconventional route to this point, crossing the pond (a la young Brooks Koepka) to professionally cut his teeth. It hasn't been an easy journey for the American, with missing cuts in 34% of his starts, but the payoff was immense at Sunday's Hero Open, where he clinched his first DP World Tour title - a win that put him on the 133rd place brought in the world. After walking the long road, it's clear how much this one meant to him. Win your first Tour title in St Andrews 🏴wandernڠڠڠڠڠA moment that will live with Sean Crocker for a lifetime.#HeroOpen pic.twitter.com/QJrtef7Nna— DP World Tour (@DPWorldTour) July 31st 2022 the Twitter Likes: Eddie Pepperell. Everyone's favorite twitterer for his clever takes and self-deprecating style, Pepperell has been open about his recent struggles, so it was satisfying to see him fight deep into the hero's last round, ending up with only one at 65 Point behind Crocker was Marks. This was a player who ended 2018 ranked No. 35 in the world but almost fell out of the top 600 last month. We hope the upward trend continues - the game gets better when this colorful character plays a role. Apparently I'm playing really well again... it feels good. Blown Fantasy Pick of the Week: Kevin Kisner. Almost all the big names have scored, so this is a bit deep, but there was cause for optimism at Kiz last week. Over the past month he had completed a surprisingly poor streak with consecutive top 25 finishes including his most recent start at The Open. He also put on a solid record at Detroit Golf Club, with an under-69 scoring average and consecutive top-10 finishes. That wasn't enough to get over a slow start, his laps of 72-71 leaving him a few short of the cut line. He will try again this week at another lucky hunting ground in Wyndham. This may have been on your social feeds last week, but the longtime USA Today/Golfweek writer was recently diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer that has spread to his liver. Chemotherapy is scheduled to start next week. DiMegs has a long way to go, but he has the entire golf community behind him. Send some positive vibes his way.
