Tom Watson is amazing. He’s tied for the lead after TWO rounds now at the British (sorry, I’m from the USA) Open. Watson fired an amazing 32 on the back! I’m on the TW bandwagon! Did I mention he’s 59 years old?
Tiger Woods, the “other TW” didn’t make the cut. Leading into the Open the Woods camp’s keyword was “precision.” Well, Turnberry and the Open dissected Tiger with surgical precision. Tiger missed only the 2nd cut in a major tournament in his entire career.
Both of these story lines are in the running for the biggest story of the 2009 golf year.
Tiger missing a cut is big news. Big enough to be on the front page of the New York Times web site:
Best wishes to Tom Watson
