It's not that unbelievable because he's still obviously a very very good and accomplished player. The Seniors tour is a tough school with the likes of Greg Norman, Mark O Meara, Ian Woosnam, Jay Haas, Sam Torrance, Wayne Grady and co playing on it.

Greg Norman has played in a total of about five Champions' Tour events.

And to say that Watson is a "very good and accomplished player" is akin to saying that Jack Nicklaus was a very good player or that Sam Snead had quite a good swing.

I used to not like Watson so much because he seemed to be Jack's kryptonite (4 majors with Jack runner up), and I grew up like many, a big Nicklaus fan. But, I've always admired his game and fortitude.

Tom has always been my favorite and I loved watching him beat Jack.

Since we didn't have the internet back in the day... WATSON OWNS NICKLAUS!!!! TOM RULLLLLLZZZZZZZZ !!!!!!!!!! Whew, glad I got that out of my system.

no way man, you can see it in his face/eyes when he talks about the game, or when he's got that big smile after

He'll need to show up if he wants to get #7 and pass Harry Vardon.

St. Andrew's is the only Scottish course in the rota Tom hasn't won at.

Haha. Indeed. He's a freakin' legend, get it straight. Quite the dichotomy in the pairing today with Watson and Steve "I had to ask my Dad to get the Passport" Marino.

What is it like 5 British Opens and 8 Majors? New Jack Tiger fans think he's "some old guy". LOL.

I was impressed with Curt Byrum on the US Bank telecast late this afternoon, assessing Watson's chances tomorrow at 2 in 10. I haven't checked the Yes/No betting line tonight but immediately after the third round I thought about it and 20-25% seemed about right, with lean toward the low number.

Watson certainly exceeded my expectations today but the bottom line is always that seniors can't put together 4 rounds in a major. Two is fairly common and three is quite rare. Four is never-never land to this point, so I'm not forgetting about that, regardless of what Watson looked like today or how much press the story receives on Golf Channel or elsewhere tonight.

Here's a question, if Watson wins is he PGA Player of the Year, based on one event?

Not quite. Tom is using the James Bond Lotus Esprit from 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Hmmmm.... He'll need to be careful getting in and out of that thing. He might crook his back and that would be that.

This is about as exciting as it gets. I don't hink there is any other story in "all" of sports history that can compare to him winning since David vs. Goliath. I hope he goes out there tommorow and kicks ass.

I"m really pulling for tom watson to win, would be the story of the year and I think most people are really behind him. He's a great player, hall of famer, but nobody thought he would do this well, nobody even thought he'd make the cut as he was scheduled to be on tv covering the last 2 rounds, now he's got a very good chance to win.

that shot on 17 could do it for him. up and down and he's favourite.

he can now determine his own destiny - westwood will hardly birdie the last after that tee shot.

    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer.
