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.

    • Above, or you could also make yourself a set of homemade speed training aids, instructions are all over the internet.
    • Day 202.  This evening, I spent ten minutes hitting balls.  I noticed my rehearsal swings weren't getting to where I expected and that my front arm was folding almost at setup.  I wonder if this was the issue yesterday?  I will have to pay more attention going forward.  By the way, I say "the issue yesterday" as if I hit the ball horribly.  Other than the first shot O.B. (which was also my first shot of the day -- range was closed), I played quite well, beating the 10 handicap mark on strokes gained by nearly a full stroke, and if we ignore the opening O.B. (which I maintain wouldn't have happened if I had been able to hit a few balls to warm up -- yes, it still counts of course), I'm under my handicap in SG:D for the day, too.
