Cink denies Watson historic win at British Open
Golf history wasn’t to be this weekend at the British Open at Turnberry. Stewart Cink thwarted 59-year-old Tom Watson’s bid Sunday to become the oldest man to win a major tournament …
Cink defeated Watson in a four-hole playoff after sinking a 12-foot birdie putt on the last hole of regulation to stay in the fight. Both men finished at 2-under 278 …
“It would have been a hell of a story, wouldn’t it?” Watson told reporters. “And it almost was. Almost. The dream almost came true.”
Though, Watson added after entering the press tent, “this ain’t a funeral, you know.”
Cink, who won his first major, said he had the utmost respect for Watson …
“My hat’s off to him,” Cink said. “He turned back the clock. Just did a great job. I speak for all the rest of the people here, too.”
