Tom Watson Turns Back Time

MAS526WatsonRaincherFifty-nine-year-old (59!) Tom Watson fired a five-under 65 and is currently on top of leaderboard at the Open Championship at Turnberry. Good on him.

“Not bad for an almost 60-year-old,” said Watson, who turns that age in September. “Obviously I enjoyed it. I played very well, kept the ball in play, made a few putts. The course was defenseless today. As a result, you’re seeing a lot of scores under par. I suspect by the end of the day, 65 will not be in the lead.”

Tiger Woods, meanwhile, struggled. He shot a 71 and is currently tied for 61st.

But the story right now is Watson. One has to wonder if he has enough game left to show the young whippersnappers how it’s done. You know, just like Cher has done. Without the plastic surgery and a transgendered child, of course.
