There is a great deal of sadness this evening at GolfBlogger World Headquarters. I’ve never cheered for a player as much as I cheered for Tom Watson this morning and afternoon. And to think that he came just a par putt from becoming the biggest golf story of all time.
But alas, it wasn’t to be. And as sad as it makes me, I can’t imagine how Tom Watson feels. His comments after the round were heart wrenching:
“It would have been a hell of a story, wouldn’t it? It wasn’t to be. It tears at your gut, as it always has torn at my gut. It’s not easy to take.
It was an almost. The dream almost came true.
Yes it did.
