Norman leads US Senior Open, but don’t hock the silverware just yet

GREG NORMAN shares the lead after the first round of the US Senior Open but we hardly need remind you, don’t put your house on him just yet. He’s gotta win one soon you’d think, but apparently tent dwelling isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The Shark shot a fine six under 66 at a very receptive Crooked Stick course in Carmel, Indiana along with Americans Joey Sindelar, Dan Forsman and amateur Tim Jackson. LIVE LEADERBOARD

Oh So Close

Tom Watson finds it within himself to be happy for Stewart Cink winning the British Open.

Oh so close but there’s wisdom in the end

GOLF can be such a very cruel game. For 59 year old Tom Watson the fairytale was just ten foot away. Every club golfer has at some stage stood over a ten foot putt, and for whatever the context making it “important” for them at the time, felt just a touch of what Watson must have been feeling. Just this putt to win the British Open, many have fantasised. But for the veteran American it wouldn’t be just any British Open. It would be an historic record equalling sixth win by a man much older than any of the champions who had gone before him.
