Tom Watson Leading the British Open

With today's round yet to be played, 59-year old Tom Watson sits atop the British Open leaderboard (you know, the tournament in which Tiger Woods missed the cut). Fifty-nine years old. Unreal.

I'm 44 years old, and I feel every ache and pain in the morning. My golf swing is a mere shadow of what it was twenty years ago, when I possessed a lower back that didn't yell at me with every swing. The thought of a 59 year old body playing four rounds of championship level golf is mind-blowing.

Tom Watson's always been a favorite of my father's, so I'm pretty sure he'll be watching every shot. But watch out for Retief Goosen....
