Graham DeLaet is competing in one of the biggest tournaments in the world -- the British Open. And while his first round left him way back of the leaders, the excitement hasn't faded in his home town of Weyburn.
"There isn't many people around our community who aren't following him - who aren't watching him on TV - and who aren't cheering him on."
Mayor Debra Button admits even the non-golfers like herself have found it hard not to pay attention.
It's a part of the game that can often go unnoticed by even the biggest of fans.
Blocking is a huge part of the job a receiver has to do on any given play, but it's rarely talked about. The offensive line gets a lot of attention, and rightfully so for their blocking, so do the running backs, but sometimes a big block thrown by a receiver can make a huge difference in any given play.
"That's where we can get the big touchdown runs," said Weston Dressler. "Instead of the big 10, 15, 20 yard gains."
Saskatoon’s David Stewart has a comfortable lead heading into the final round of the Saskatchewan Men’s Amateur Golf Championship in Melfort.
He had the low round of the day Wednesday carding a five under 67 which included six birdies and a bogey.

Prince Albert’s Zach Hurd and Duck Lake’s Dakota Cameron sit seven shots off the lead at +2.
Defending champion Tyler Frank shot a 74 and sits in a tie for 24 th at +11.
One Riders remains a question mark, while another will finally make his debut.
Quarterback Darian Durant once again didn't practice on Wednesday, after the team had the day off on Tuesday, but there does appear to be some progress.
Durant began the day in a walking boot, but as practice wore on Durant came back without the boot on his right foot.
'It'll still be more so of a game time decision," said head coach Corey Chamblin. "How much pain he has, and how much can he move. Only he knows that at this point."
Any fans who were waiting to buy their Grey Cup tickets are out of luck; the game is now sold out.
The last 5,000 of the 45,000 seats in Mosaic Stadium were sold in the ticket lottery at the beginning of July. That's despite the fact that the big game is still five months away, set to hit Regina on November 24.
The reasoning behind a person’s decision to take steroids isn’t as narrow as it might once have been. With increased pressure in society to look good, some are turning to the drugs to boost their body image.
It was a rough day for golfers during
round two of the Saskatchewan Men's Amateur Golf Championship at the Melfort
Golf & Country Club.
Prince Albert's Zach Hurd is the leader at -2 after a shooting a 74 today.
Saskatoon's David Stewart and Prince Albert's Ashley Ziegeman are two shots back at even par.
After shooting a 67 Monday, first-round leader Jerry Christiansen ballooned to an 84 to sit in a tie for 15th.
Defending champion Tyler Frank is in a tie for 24th at +9.
Kory Sheets is already making history but a much bigger CFL record is also in his sights.
The Roughriders running back rushed for 178 yards against the Toronto Argonauts last week. On Monday the CFL's stats guru Steve Daniel broke down the numbers on the league's web site and revealed Sheets is on pace to not only set but potentially shatter the all-time record for rushing yards in a season and yards from scrimmage in a season.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are boasting the two best players on either side of the ball this week.
Running back Kory Sheets and linebacker Rey Williams have been selected as the offensive and defensive players of the week, respectively.
Sheets dominated in last week's game against the Toronto Argonauts, racking up two touchdowns on 26 rushing attempts for 178 yards, a career single-game high. He had two catches as well for 21 yards.
Once again this year the Roughriders defense has been built around being a unit that works together with few stars standing out.
But so far one man is stepping up and making things happen.
After last week's win over the Toronto Argonauts linebacker Rey Williams not only leads the team in tackles (14), but quarterback sacks (3) as well. He's also tied for the team lead in interceptions (1).
Not bad for someone who was cast aside by one of the worst defense's in the CFL in recent memory.
