VIDEO: Tom Watson on His Last Open Championship
TOM WATSON TALKS ABOUT HIS LAST Open Championship. He won his first of five Open titles in 1975 at Carnoustie in a playoff against Australian Jack Newton.
Watson also gives a primer on how to play the Old Course. Stay left. Don't "underplay" the wind. Be "spot on" with your long putting. The 65-year-old opened with a 4-over 76.
"I stunk up the joint the way I played," Watson said. "Too many 6s on the back nine ruined my day."
Unless he does something heroic, today will be his last walk up 18.
