138th Open Championship play-off

If you’re a golf fan you’ll already know that a bogey on the 18th hole has left 59 year-old 5-times former champion Tom Watson in a 4 hole play-off against fellow American Stewart Cink for the 138th Open Championship at Turnberry. Watson has been amongst the leaders since the first round. Online live video here. Adds Cink takes an early lead with a par to Watson’s +1 on the 1st play-off hole. Great save for par by Watson on 2nd. No Change. Another 2 shots dropped by Watson on 3rd to Cink’s birdie. Cink clinches it on the final hole with another birdie to Watson’s bogey. A tremendous effort by Watson throughout the week, but it wasn’t to be. Adds From today’s Irish Times

YOU FELT it last evening, a cold chill passing over the grand links of Turnberry as the ghosts of Old Tom Morris, Willie Park, Harry Vardon and all those other greats of bygone times accepted it was not to be and returned to their spiritual resting places.
