With the Olympics right around the corner, large sporting events have begun to slow down. The biggest event this past week was the 2016 PGA Championship where Jimmy Walker won his first major championship title with a score of 14 under par. He was only one shot ahead of the reigning champ Jason Day! The PGA Championship was held at the Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey. Horrible weather was customary during the entire championship, and there were many delays and waterlogged parts of the course. The tournament started two weeks in advance due to the 2016 Rio Olympics that will be occurring very soon.
The 2016 Rio Olympics will have their opening ceremony on Friday, August 5 at 4:00PM (PT) on NBC. Let’s see how the opening ceremony this year compares with the past ceremonies we have seen. Swimming will be the first sport to air from Saturday, August 6th at 6:00PM. Men’s 400m individual medley will start off the 2 week Olympic events.
We’ll be back later this week with entertainment.
