Tom Watson at 59, can he pull off a British Open win?Page 1 of 1    
It really is amazing that he is playing so well. Even to be leading after the 3rd round.

Who thinks he will pull this off tomorrow?

Goes to show how one can play golf all your life.

Is there any sport that one can win or compete in such a way?

Foreman came back and fought in his 40's.... But 59?
...and I know taking punches is a bit more than swinging a club, but you have to hand it to him.

I hope he wins tomorrow.

Hey even PGA players in their 20's have it handed to them. Watson knows what he's doing. We'll see what happens I guess. Where's Tiger?

Retief Goosen is 2 shots back and Jim Furyk is just 3 shots back and both of them are paired up today. Like to see Watson win but I think it will be either Goosen or Furyk.

Watson's six foot putt to win was his worst effort all day. Stewart Cink will now win the 4 hole playoff.

What a heartbreaker for Watson. Arguably worse than Jean van de Velde

Kudos to Cink on his first major. But Watson made it a fun final to watch.

That was hard to watch. In the playoff I knew it was over when he hit his drive, on the 17th, in the deep rough. That stuff is unforgiving. Cink was awesome though and this was his tournament. Playing the way he did on the back 9 and in the playoff... just incredible.

Towards the end Watson played like the average golfer.
Now the older golfer's will get out their clubs and head to the links.
You gave it a great run at it Tom.

not even close...velde needed a 6 (double bogey) on 18 to win it. He could have used a 8 iron all the way down the fairway and got a 6. Instead he pulled out the driver, then wanted to go for the green instead of laying up...

Watson didnt do anything that was that stupid like Jean...

Gotta love those kind of stories... I remember when Jimmy Connors played Aaron Krickstein in the 91 US open at 39...

Only thing come close to Velde's collaspe in the 1999 Brithish Open Championship would be Roy McAvoy losing his open championship in the movie "Tin Cup"
