Turnberry Scotland - Tom Watson came to golf's birth place and gave the crowd what they came for, golf magic!
Just shy of his 60th birthday the 5 time Open Champion turned back the clock and suddenly it was 1977 all over again.
Posting a score of 4 under for the tournament, and 71 for the day, Watson owned the crowd, the Scottish links course and the leader board at the end of play Saturday.
Walking up the 18th fairway, after a birdie on 17 to reclaim sole possession of the lead, Watson's smile never faded. The smile that began with his introduction on the number 1 tee, could not hide his emotion and gratitude on the 18th green as the crowd rose and the thunderous roar became a crescendo, clearly the moment touched him and all in attendance and the moment was pure magic, and the moment was pure Tom Watson.
And when Sunday was over The Open Championship was not Tom Watson's.
Perhaps is was all just a dream, but man what a dream it was.
