Come on Tom. What a choke.

That would have been awesome.

Hey man, at his age to push the British Open into a playoff is pretty amazing IMO regardless of the playoff outcome.

I know, but that was painful to see.

He didn't push it to a playoff, he flamed out and fell into a playoff.

And the rest was painful to watch.

Would have been nice to see but not everything can have a Hollywood ending.

Also I am glad to see Tiger miss the cut. Don't dislike him, I just think golf is more interesting when he doesn't win every week.

Would have liked to see Daly do better. Would be good to see him have some good luck.

I was rooting for Tom to be able to bring it home. Wasn't expecting it, but was hoping for it. At least he didn't shoot the Sunday 77 like Greg Norman would have.

I agree with CanadianMule on Tiger and don't mind seeing him struggle just a bit.

I think you'll find its called The Open .. not the British Open.
The original and the Best

I agree. Well except for the Canadian Open of course. But the meaning there is that all the bars and pubs are open.

Either way I always enjoy the British Open. The courses and weather always play a factor and make it interesting. The only problem is that is starts so early over here. I usually enjoy a nap while watching in the afternoon.

Of the four majors, the British Open is my least favorite. To me the courses over there are like giant miniature golf courses with the thigh high grass and ten foot deep sand traps.

spoken like someone who is always in the rough and can't get out of sand traps.

You forgot to mention golfing in the rain.

I love Tom Watson ... he has been my favorite ever since his
heydey. I was happy to see him make this run.

In all honesty, although he downplayed it as a factor in his
press talk after the match, I think fatigue played a huge
part in it late. The bogey on the 72nd hole took the wind
out of his sail, and then I think his will and body finally was unable
to deal with walking around an 18-hole course for 4 days in a row.

People who don't play might not realize this, but a round of golf
is more phsically demanding than it looks on TV. When I was a kid
and young adult it was no effect, but now when I play I can feel it
at the end of the round. And that is riding in a cart. The energy is expended
swinging at the ball (about a 100 times in my case).

To walk 72 holes in 4 days at 59years old, exerting full energy towards a
golf swing, it takes something out of an older body. That why it has never
been accomplished before. Equally as valid as skill level eroding with age is
the idea that the body can't compete either.

If somebody had to beat him Cink a good choice ... a homeboy to us Georgians.
Had the scenario been reversed ... where Watson was coming from behind and tied it up on the 72nd hole to force a playoff, I think his body might have gotten a second wind and competed. But to be forced into a playoff deflated his confidence, and his body quickly followed.

For those of you who called that a 'choke' and in the final analysis rate it as just 'painful to watch' you clearly have no idea what you just witnessed to begin with. That was utterly astonishing. 1 put away from winning it all at 59 AND it's Tom Watson one of the greatest and classiest players of all time to boot; unbelievable.

"Too bad/yeah but he didn't win"??

That's like summitting a Mount Rainier and the only thing you have to say is "It was too cold up there"
True, but not really the biggest or most important piece of the puzzle is it?

Choke? He lost?

That was sick.

The Open is my favorite major because of the courses they play.

Augusta National won't make Tiger miss a cut.

Don't sweat the topic title, considering Chris started it. It could have been much worse.

Yeah, it's too bad they didn't have course designers around 150 years ago when these courses were formed.............

what is also being missed here is the performance of Steward Cink, he made 7 birdies on a day most
folks went the other way.

I am sure Tom would want you to remember that as well.

What a great accomplishment by Tom Watson. Anyone demeaning him for this historic effort are not to be paid attention to. It's a typical thread though: Person A types something mean and inconsiderate and person B posts multiple pictures.

For those saying he choked; I want to see how well you perform against men in their prime when you turn 59 years old.

When Watson hit his drive on 18 right where he needed it to be on the fairway , I thought he was home free. Second shot over hit to the back of the green , but in position to hit it within 3 feet of the pin for a short put to win. I winced as the 3rd shot was overhit past the hole but still leaving a makeable winning put. I literally yelled NO !! at the TV as soon as the attempted winning put left the club. I felt bad that shot didn't even have a chance. A fine showing no matter how you look at it. It's a shame Tom couldn't finish it off for the win. Just another thought. If this is made into some kind of movie William Macy has to play Tom Watson , they look like brothers IMO.

Watson made the Open awesome to watch - I had been rooting for him since Friday - yeah it sucked at the end....but good God, he was a gentelman about it, and made no excuses except that he blew it. A class act!

My point was he had it in the bag. It was won. All he had to do is get up and down for par. His 3rd shot (put from fringe) was one of his worst shots all tournament. Then his put for par was the worst (in regulation, that is).

Don't get me wrong, I like Cink, he's a classy guy, but Watson winning would have been unbelievable.

Impossible, I know, but it would have been mounumental if Cink had said "Let's share it!"

Everyone would have remembered both players as great sportsmen.
