Brady Scores Seventh Super Bowl Win as Tampa Bay Defeats Chiefs 31-9, Dustin Johnson Wins Second Saudi International in Three Years

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9 at Super Bowl LV yesterday, giving superstar quarterback Tom Brady his seventh Super Bowl win, a league record. Brady was also awarded the Super Bowl MVP award, which was the fifth of his career, and also a league record. The AP quotes Brady on Tampa Bay's victory:

"The team had a lot of confidence. We came together at the right time. I think we knew this was going to happen tonight, didn't we? We ended up playing our best game of the year."

This was the Buccaneers' second Super Bowl win, and the first time that a team hosted and won a Super Bowl, as the game was held at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

ESPN reports that Dustin Johnson won the Saudi International in King Abdullah Economic City yesterday for the second time in three years "after shooting a 2-under 68 in the final round to finish 2 strokes clear of Justin Rose and Tony Finau." Johnson told Sky Sports:

"I saw the leaderboard a little bit; the guys were playing well, but I kept giving myself a lot of chances. I didn't hole many of them but finally holed a really nice putt on 13."
