⛳️Golf: Spaniard Jon Rahm won his first major yesterday, the U.S. Open, with a 6-under-par score, beating out the likes of Louis Oosthuizen (pronounced OOST-hay-zen), Brooks Koepka (pronounced KEP-ka) and Rory McIlroy. Not a bad way to spend your first Father’s Day.

🏒NHL: Things are all tied up over in the Stanley Cup semifinals, with both series — Tampa Bay Lightning vs. New York Islanders and Montreal Canadiens vs. Vegas Golden Knights — tied at 2-2. TikTokers aren’t the only ones with ice in their veins.

🏎F1: Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen found his wings during the second-last lap of yesterday’s French Grand Prix, when he passed reigning champ Lewis Hamilton and won his third race of the season. Next up is a double-header in Austria, where the W Series season is also set to start (more about that Saturday *wink wink*).
