Tiger misses cut at British Open, as Watson now takes center stage...agian

As one of the first to report how this year’s British Open at Turnberry was suited to the game of Tiger Woods and how he was a prohibited 2/1 favorite, and all but gave him the “Jug”, we have to post our first ever reprint as Tiger Woods has missed the cut for only the second time as a professional, with the first coming in 2006 U.S. Open following the death of his father. TW had a pair of double bogeys on 10 and 13 that all but sealed his fate. While Tiger was using his machete to battle out of the ‘triple rough’ granddad Tom Watson (59) is still right in thick of things, and I don’t mean the rough, as he shot an even par 70 and is tied for the lead at -5. What Watson has done has been simply amazing as he has battled his nerves and a bad day of weather to lead going into the round that separates contenders from pretenders. Fear not ABC another there’s another great story looming other than Watson, the comeback of John Daily, who is five shots back at even and with his power with the steel, could be a factor down the stretch if he can keep his mental game in tact, but that’s a big IF. Unfortunately, although great fodder, historically based on when TW was out with his knee injury TV ratings plummeted without him in the mix so ABC will be scrambling through the garbage for old footage of when Daily was good and archives when Watson battled Nicklaus, so if you’re going to watch get ready for a steady dose of it, but it’s only two days.
