Tom Watson, you du (old) man!


Tom Watson

He's almost 60 years old, and he's leading going into the final round of the British Open, the world's oldest, if not the most prestigious, major golf tournament. (Details here.) Tiger Woods is nowhere to be seen, having failed to make the cut.

Tom, you've given all of us old men hope. The 60s aren't the (19)60s, which we'll never get back. But it's possible to feel young again. Go, Tom.
