A thank you to Tom Watson for keeping Open Tiger Woods free
I’m sure Tom Watson is still dealing with the harsh feelings of not being able to close the show and become the oldest major champion and becoming only the second man to win six Claret Jugs. He’s an athlete and competitor, so of course it hurts.
But his mindset will change soon enough, and when it does, I believe we all owe Watson a debt of gratitude. Because while Tiger Woods missed the cut, the Open was all set to become a Saturday and Sunday full of Tiger Woods. Why did he miss the cup? How is his knee? Oh God, how we miss him.
But Watson played four amazing rounds and shut down the Tiger talk almost completely over the weekend. It was glorious. I guess it makes sense that a man old enough to be Tiger’s grandfather is the only one able to keep Tiger quiet on a weekend at the British Open.
