Reviewing All The Sports Over The Weekend
Keith Mitchell became a professional golfer in 2014 after having won exactly one event at the University of Georgia. Other than a victory at a mini-tour event, he had never won as a pro.
And then came Sunday in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, at the Honda Classic. Tied for second going into the final round, Mitchell opened with a pair of bogeys before rallying for a 1-stroke victory at PGA National thanks to a birdie putt on the final hole.
“Everyone gets their first win somewhere, and I wanted this to be mine,” Mitchell said.
Joey Logano held off Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski to win the Pennzoil 400 in Las Vegas. Keselowski won last week’s race in Atlanta. Kyle Busch finished third.
In Saturday’s games, No. 1 Gonzaga rolled over St. Mary’s 69-55.
No. 2 Virginia crushed Pitt 73-49.
