My dear Watson
So a pretty amazing sports headline is happening in Scotland right now. The British Open, being played at Turnberry is being led by one of the most unlikely leaders. 59 year old Tom Watson, who has won 5 past British Opens, but none since 1983, is winning on day 3 of 4. I saw his name at the top of the leaderboard on day one and thought it was a feel good story that the AARP representative had a good day on the links...but to see him up there on day three is impressive.
It's hard not to pull for a guy that hits it half the distance of today's golf heavyweights.
Turnberry is quickly making its way to my top 5 courses to play. It is absolutely majestic.
