Golf

Australian Jason Day claimed his first major title becoming the firs player to ever win with a score of 20 under par. A fine shot at the sixteenth hole to birdie finally finished off the challenge of American Jordon Speith who was looking to claim his third major of the season.The second place finish meant Speith did have the consolation of moving to the top of the world rankings ahead of Rory McIlroy but the week belonged to the Australian who played seemingly nerveless golf throughout the final round. Brandon Grace of South Africa and Britain’s Justin Rose were third and fourth respectively.

Boxing

Mexican Carlos Cuadris easily defended his WBC Super Flyweight title against Dixon Flore in Sinaloa on Saturday. After a couple of level opening rounds, the champion began to open up and landing heavy shots to which Flore had no answers. After a dominant fourth round where Flores struggled to not go down, Cuadris eventually caught Flore flush in the fifth finishing the fight to complete a routine defense of the title with the outcome most were expecting.
