Tom Watson might be the oldest person playing at the Open Championship, but he still one of the best on tour. Watson, who is 64 years old, made the cut after back to back 73’s at the 143rd Open Championship. It’s crazy to think that back in 1983 Watson was making memories at the Open, while some of these young guys on the course were not even born yet.
At the beginning of the week, Watson said his goal was to make the cut and was determined to do so. Watson has told the media that he will play in two more Open Championships before walking away but with the way he is playing I don’t see a reason to.
“I came over here with a purpose to play my best golf and play on the weekend,” Watson said after shooting a second consecutive 73. “Let’s see what happens on the weekend. See if the old guy can maybe get it rolling a little bit.”
Watson walked up to the 18th at Royal Liverpool needing a par to make the cut and he almost grabbed a birdie. This is the fourth time he has made the cut in the last six years.
