A great week in Canada, but we’re ready for Team USA!

I’ve scoured social media from the past week for the top photos, quips, and stories from your favorite golfers and golf media and gathered them together for you to enjoy! -Sniff

Jhonattan Vegas earned his second PGA Tour win at the RBC Canadian Open this weekend:

And his thanked his fans in Spanish:

However, Canadian native, Jared du Toit, stole the show:

The amateur made a 40-foot eagle on the 18th hole Saturday that put him into second place going into the final round:

Oh yeah, and then there’s this:

Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson continues to kick butt:

With the Olympics just around the corner, Team USA is getting ready:

Who's ready for the @olympics? This Guy!! #USA #StarsAndStripes

The best golfers in the world gathered at Royal Troon Golf Course in Scotland this weekend:

The weekend at The Open awaits…

But two world-class golfers stood above the rest:

Lefty’s 17-under would have won the previous three Opens:

But Henrik Stenson was just too good:

Phil wanted to get a piece of that Claret Jug, too:

At least he’s a good sport:

And he received some props from another world-class golfer on his bogey-free round:

With the win, Stenson brought home Sweden’s first major title:

As always, the scenery was to die for:

And although John Daly missed the cut, his pineapple pants were the talk of Twitter:

Lydia Ko won at the LPGA’s Marathon Classic, but took some time to congratulate Stenson:

And now we look forward to next week, when the tour heads to Canada:

The PGA Tour took an unexpected week off due to the flooding in West Virginia:

So all eyes were on the DICK’s Sporting Goods Open:

Where John Daly decided to putt one-handed:

And the LPGA:

And there was some controversy that went along with the U.S. Women’s Open:

And then there was this… awkward:

Meanwhile, PGA golfers enjoyed their week off:

Meanwhile, the pranks between Rickie Fowler and Danny Lee continue:

And Rickie Fowler is quickly becoming the butt of PGA Tour jokes:

Jordan Spieth has been working on his mental game, so he quickly fired back when the Golf Channel portrayed him as whining:

But Spieth makes it all look easy:

Andrew “Beef” Johnson posed with a hamburger:

Then teed it up:

This 6-year-old has a pretty impressive golf swing:

And Adam Scott unveiled his new questionable shirt:

We hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!

It was a beautiful weekend at the Quicken Loans National:

Beautiful day at the 10th hole from the @qlnational! The only million dollar hole in golf!

A photo posted by Quicken Loans (@quickenloans) on

And we were all reminded that last year Rickie Fowler made a hole-in-one at the 10th hole of QL National, giving a fan free mortgage payments for a year:

Rickie met that lucky fan this week:

But it was Navy veteran, Billy Hurley who won the weekend at a course just miles from Annapolis:

Meanwhile, flooding in West Virginia has canceled next week’s Greenbrier Classic:

Please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers affected by these horrific flood waters. #StayStrongWV

A photo posted by The Greenbrier Classic (@gbrclassic) on

And efforts are being made to help the flood victims:

The Greenbrier has even opened its doors to victims of the flooding:

Bubba Watson saw the damage firsthand:

And taught his son a little something about living with no power:

On the Champions Tour, John Daly had a heckuva good time in his portable jacuzzi:

And a Twitter feud between Ryder Cup teams helped us celebrate less than 100 days to go before the international tournament:

The rain delays got to some golfers. Spencer Levin let his frustration show:

DJ didn’t let anything get to him and he finally brought home his first major:
