Well, here it is. Watson got a bad break as far as i'm concerned. He hit a great 8 iron shot into a green that didn't hold. If his ball had hit 4 feet shorter he would have been stoney but instead, it rolled over and into the second cutting. Bad break.
But. But, (i'm not the idiot you are talking about) but, he hit a shot that wasn't good from there. Should have gone with a wedge instead of trying to putt. And the next shot, which I describe as a choke. (say what you will) but it was absolutely the worst five and a half footer i've seen anyone hit, including an 18 handicapper. His head came up, he decelerated through the stroke, not very Watsonlike. Look, the chip was bad but the putt was terrible.
As great a story this was, I'm glad for cink. He did what he had to do to win this tournament. He birdied the last hole and then played consistant in the playoff. And as one commenter said, if Watson had won, it would have been a great story but it wouldn't have been a life changing event for him. Just another Brittish Open win. For Cink? It is a life changing and a historical event for him.
Needless to say, this 58 year old was rooting for the old guy. But it was the worst putt i've ever seen in a professional event.
