 ⛳️Golf: As we mentioned at the top, Phil Mickelson proved age is just a number yesterday with his second-career PGA Championship win. Not only is he the oldest player to win a major, he’s just the fourth to win one in four separate decades. Congrats, Lefty! Now let’s get you some better security.

🏎️F1: Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won yesterday’s Monaco Grand Prix to take his first-ever lead in the Formula One world championship standings. Meanwhile, seven-time world champ Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton wasn’t feeling it in Monaco, finishing in a disappointing seventh as he and Verstappen continue their heated hunt for the title.

🎾Tennis: Olivia Rodrigo wasn’t the only one showing out for Gen Z this weekend. On Saturday, 17-year-old Coco Gauff notched her first career singles title on clay while sweeping both the singles and doubles titles at the Italian Open. Perfect timing before next week’s French Open. Très bien. 

What’s not très bien? Fellow Gen Z Denis Shapovalov dropping out of Roland Garros (aka the French Open) with a shoulder injury. C’est dommage.
