    Tom Freaking Watson

    Got the yips on his last putt. Four-hole playoff with Cink.

    I started watching this at 3 a.m., if he can pull this off, it'll be the greatest thing I've ever seen in sports.

    I mean... Tiger missed the cut by more than a couple strokes, and this near 60-year old might win.

    I feel so bad for him that he missed it though. He deserved to win it on the 18th.

    Let's see if he can pull it off. I have to think the advantage lies with Cink, just because he's younger. 10 months removed from a hip replacement, I have to think Watson is tired, and probably sore too.

    That was tough to watch. I feel terrible for him.

    I watched it all weekend and feel like I just got kicked in the nuts. I am deflated. Can't believe he got bogey on 18 after a drive right down the middle. He was that 8 footer away from one of the best sports stories of all time.

    Yeah, as soon as that didn't go in, I knew he was done. He looked GASSED there at the end. I can't even see how that could be a good feeling for Stewart Cink to win it that way. Just outlasting a man twice your age? lol

    I was pulling for Watson on morning. Kept me from turning on the XBOX. He looked great till the last hole with people collapsing all around him down the stretch.

    Yeah, I have always liked Cink and I guess he is a really nice guy so it sucks for him to win his 1st when everyone on the planet was rooting for the other guy. I bet Cink's dad was rooting for Watson.

    I was at work all day but I just saw the highlights of that last putt and WOW, I could've done that. I'm just glad it was a good guy who won and not Sergio.
