Tom Watson, the legendary 64-year-old golfer who will captain the U.S.
Since the five-time British Open champion barely made the cut after shooting a second consecutive one-over-par 73 on Friday at Royal Liverpool, it's very likely that the 2015 Open at St. Andrew's will be his last.
"I am enjoying it," Watson told reporters Friday of his experience this week. "Today on the practice range, my swing turned around. I really started hitting the ball well. … It was the best warmup session I've had all year. I felt very good going out to the golf course."
"It was pretty special playing with Tom, and the reception he got," said Furyk, who is tied for ninth at five-under 139 after shooting a second-round 71. "And to watch him grind it out and make a birdie on the way in and make the cut was pretty cool. I was pulling for him pretty hard on No. 18."
Watson had a runner-up finish in the British Open in 2009, by far his best effort in a major since tying for ninth in the 2000
